Ден на азбуката, културата и просветата!

May 24 is Bulgaria’s Education and Culture, and Slavonic Literature Day (as it says above), which celebrates Bulgarian culture and the Cyrillic alphabet.  Bulgaria is an east European country which was formerly a member of the Warsaw pact during the cold war.  I had a friend whose primary mission was to pick up sausages from Bulgaria for Leonid Brezhnev when he was Premier of the Soviet Union, so I guess Bulgarian sausages are pretty good.  I’ll try one and eventually remember to let you know what I discover.  Bulgaria gained its freedom from Soviet domination when the Iron Curtain collapsed in 1989 and is now a solid member of the EU and NATO (so please ignore the communist flag and navy hat – they are just neat props!).

Incidentally, the Bulgarian Navy (Военноморски сили на България) operates 4 frigates (three Belgian Wielingens and one Soviet Koni), two ASW corvettes (both Soviet Pauks), one corvette (a Soviet Trantul), a minesweeper (a Belgian Tripartite), three Soviet Osa class missile boats, one Romeo class Soviet submarine, four Soviet Sonya class minesweepers, and two Polish Polnocny class landing ships.  Not bad, eh?  Long live Bulgaria!

      If I had a cyrillic keyboard I would write it for you!!! Unfortunately, I used the cut and paste method to get the Bulgarian and Russian terms used in my blogs. I can speak a bit of both, but not enough to warrant downloading the dual-keyboard function!
