Sunday photo-blogging: Sofia, Bulgaria

It may have been the last day of April but it was damn chilly! The clouds and stiff breeze didn't help. Nippy weather, however, never seems to stop the good locals from getting out and about. When I was here in February, the main streets were crowded with pedestrians even at -20C! It's much easier to talk myself into a walk when everyone else is doing it, so, that's precisely what I did. Here's a flavor of the city on an early - chilly - Sunday afternoon.

Sofia Chinese Restaurant
Vassil Levski Blvd

Often when the restaurant sign contains English, it will read "Chines" food.

11th Century Eastern Orthodox Church
Vitosha Street, Sofia

15th Century Jewish Synagogue
Behind Central Hall, Sofia

The Orthodox Church, the Synagogue and an Islamic Mosque are all within three blocks of each other. I will get a shot of the Mosque and post it later.

Note the Subway franchise on the second level. There's no escaping the United States no matter how far away you may go.
