My first trip tp Bulgaria was in July of 1995. It remains my favorite country to visit and I am able to go about once a year. In the summer of 2005, took a group of Fredonia students on a 17-day study-tour.
During the Fall 1997 semester, I was a Fulbright Scholar at the American University in Bulgaria which is located in Blagoevgrad.

When my daughter Laura broke her leg, our next door neighbor Radi came (with her cats) to visit every night.
