Kate and Andrew went on a wonderful day trip today to the rock church of Ivanovo, the rock monastery of Basarbovo, Cherven medieval fortress, Nicopolis ad Istrum and Preobrazhenski Monastery, but I was at work all day and didn't get back until late. I had been to all of them except for the latter before, I suppose!

After we arrived back from Arbanasi yesterday I had to go back to work for 3pm, but Kate and Andrew went to Sarafkina Kushta, the ethnographical house museum on Gurko Street. Kate also revisited the craftsmen's street to buy herself a dish from the coppersmith.

That evening we went to Piccolo restaurant for dinner. I had never been there before, and after the dud meals we had there, I'm highly unlikely ever to return. Kate's in particular was very disappointing. She'd ordered carp because she'd never had it before, but it arrived in greasy battered chunks with lots of bones still in, and her 'steamed vegetables' were just lukewarm frozen mixed veg with tough peas. Took forever to arrive, too. We had been planning to go for cocktails before going round to 'F's at 9:30pm, but didn't have time thanks to dinner taking so long. We had a lovely time at 'F's though; 'R' went round too and we had a great time together.

Up at the crack of dawn tomorrow for our bus journey to Sofia!
