Dear Family and Friends,
After a little over two weeks in beautiful, at times confounding, Italy, I’ve landed in Eastern Europe. I arrived in Sofia, Bulgaria two nights ago after more than 26 hours on a train from Budapest. My initial plan to city-hop through Eastern Europe to use up my Eurorail Pass had to be nixed once I discovered the inefficiencies of the Eastern European railway system. Nonetheless, the train here turned out to be quite comfortable and even enjoyable, and now I’m in Bulgaria staying with a friend I met in Barcelona. It’s quite cold here — I’ve finally had to purchase a sweater — but I like it. Like I said to my friend, it feels like “autumn time in New England…” haha. Anyway, I’m here until this Saturday and then I’m off to Istanbul.

I’ve added a few entries to my blog and the pictures are updated up until Sofia, so feel free to check them out. As always, if you have any tips/suggestions/advice, please send my way!

And Ramadan Mubarak!

Cheers, ciao, salaam, and all.
