It was nice but I was just in Varna and Golden Sands and only for a short while. I decided to leave for Romania. Maybe I'll come back later, though.

Jack: currently 0. Though I still sometimes talk about "my car" as, even though it was stolen by corrupt Serbians several years ago, I still think of it as spiritually my car. I drove a '99 Dodge Viper RT/10 for over 13 years all over the world. I've only ever owned 4 cars in my life, and the other 3 were all before I turned 23.

Nice quiz. I only stumbled on the last two but got them after thinking for a second. At first I thought you were looking for an English name for rakia and was racking my brain to figure it out. It turned out much easier than that. :) And I'm very happy to see the LB question here. It's time people learn, that yogurt is not originally Greek.

Yeah, I don't think it's s good question. The hint is misleading - according to WP Rakia is a type of fruit brandy. I would say varieties of alcohol are not drinks like brandy, beer, wine, etc but more like ethanol, methanol, etc

I tried vodka first and then alcohol. I'm not an alcohol fan at all personally but some varieties of rakia I had in Sofia I guess were okay. I also liked the rakia-flavored turkish delight that I got at the airport in Cyprus.

Rakia is something you can't not love :P I'll have to try that Turkish delight, though!

Would it be possible for 'Thracia' also to be accepted as the ancient region?

I tried spelling that in so many ways, I thought I was going crazy, especially after living in Bulgaria for two years. Wikipedia lists "Thrace" as an alternate spelling of "Thracia", so...

Beautiful day here, but a little sad. I just bid farewell to our two yearling bulls who are headed to other farms where all the "ladies" aren't related to them. I know I shouldn't get attached to them but it's hard not to. Other than that, typical day - canned some tomatoes, got a haircut, pulled weeds in the flower beds, ate a mess of greens from the garden - a fine, autumn day.

Thanks, Mogysht. Good quiz. You got me with alcohol, though. I tried every liquor, type of beer or wine I could think of - except brandy.
