So, I have heard rumors of more political unrest. What is with the protests and riots in Sofia? I got an email from who I think is your senior missionary couple (sister) saying that you all still have electricity despite the cost and that protests and riots are happening. Are you safe? What have you seen? - Well, the country is falling apart. As you probably heard, the Prime Minister resigned, as did the Pope for the Catholic Church. The mafia is controlling the ток which is the power, and people are having to pay double just cause it's the Mafia. They are pissed and are rioting. We are told to de-tag and run away if we see any members of the Mafia.I have seen a couple of big ones here with some angry Bulgarians, but I haven't gotten anywhere near. Sofia is a HUGE HUGE place. Over 1 million people. -
Alright. So Sofia is amazing. I cannot believe I was scared to come here. It is so big it's crazy. It feels like I'm in New York or something. There are great places to see, tons of people to talk to, and fun people to be around. Sofia has everything. I have been genuinely happy here. There is such a busy-ness here that is just exciting. For example, I have a 40 minute commute every morning and evening via public transportation to get to the church building. It's a lot of fun to learn "city-life". I am very happy to be here.
Today we are going on a hike to a monastery with Martin. It should be a lot of fun!.
