Hmm...my first visited city in the Rodopi (teil 1)
This city lies in a high valley surrounded by beautiful mountains, but it was warmer than Sofia that day. We were going for our lunch, which was to be on the top of a mountain called Alabak - in one of our camps.

While eating our BBQ, we were making fun with some farm animals which wandered nearby...
