Walked across the border to Bulgaria. Waited many hours for a ride, and when I was about to give up, sitting slumped over by the road, a man stops a drives me to Балчик (Balchik), just north of Варна (Varna). I sleep on a small shrubbery-covered hill in the middle of the town, with a nice view of the Black sea. In the morning I see a big sailing ship that has anchored during the night. I continue south, and end up in Поморие (Pomorie), where I have been staying with Martin for a couple of days. Tomorrow I am heading south, towards Istanbul. Let’s go!
