Junenan Bulgaria is full of take away food just look at wot Bulgarians eat at lunch time . There are hot take away counters in CBA Piccadilly Kaufland Billa , and little places that sell deep fried fish . and pizza and cheese and bacon rolls . If you cant speak Bulgarian just point they want to sell it , and when you try you will want to eat it . I only live 4 k from VT and we have a flat in Ruse in the centre and that's why location is what you must think about not just the view .

I don't know where you are Loupy Lou, but most of what you've mentioned food wise I can get here, some I make. I don't get followed round shops either (although it used to happen all the time initially in Turkey and drive me bonkers till I learned how to say, hmmmmm, "
go away"
)

We've made some nice friends here too, and some we knew before we came here, and we have an excellent vet - he saved our Tigger's life.

There are so many different areas in Bulgaria - some have landed in a good place some not so good, some have settled, others simply loathe it. We had a friend who moved to Spain last year and another who left for Cyprus so it's not for everyone I know. We like it at the moment, but who knows in teh future, I'm not a mind reader..

It's terrible to be so completely unhappy in a strange country and I feel for you. I hope all your plans come to fruition and that Greece works out better for you. In the meantime, here's a hug!

Ihaven't seen lamb since we arrived James and Julie, unless running around the fields with a wooly coat on, and only had an occasional rumoured sighting of beef, we think it's an urban legend!

Pork, chicken and mice (various) are the norm in our area, but since we aren't mad about red meat it suits us, which is just as well.

Most of what we buy is stocked in the little shops, but in this area there are also a lot of British foods available.

It's surprising how the different areas of BG vary in availablity of products, weather, nature. We've lived in two different regions now and I noticed even the bread is different - the local bread not the sliced stuff - and the prices here in Elhovo region are cheaper than where we started off outside Bourgas. Interesting.

As far as the Brit imported foods are concerned I think it's great that some people have seen a niche and are importing - entrepreneurial spirit!

I hope some makes it's way to LoupyLou soon to cheer her up a bit, and if we ever get a sighting of lamb or prime beef over this way I'll let you know!

Theres an English butcher 3 villages from us,we had sirloin and topside,fairly good quality but not as tender as English,i think maybe its because they dont hang their meat beef needs to be hung for a least a month,they kill it chop it up and cook it,although not too bad i think if they were to hang it it would better.
