Apr 20, 2007 - Black Sea Bulgaria

19th April- We arrived in Burgas in the afternoon found a hotel to stay in and spent the rest of the day resting and watching the TV. 20th April- We walked around the town for the morning and stopped off at a seaside restaurant for lunch. We had a few beers and played cards for the afternoon. We spent the afternoon drinking $2 bottles of wine and eating chips. A very relaxing way to spend the day.
