Any info on if/how this affects camping in the mountains?
I guess I will jump in a reply. I was going to let it go and maybe I should, oh well.
First, Don and Shasho, I think your argument is with the article not me. The article was the one that put cinema into the same category of “culture” that theater, etc. was in. I don’t really care for the whole high brow vs low brow culture argument. My point was merely that the numbers in the article did not match up with my experience and was wondering if it was just me. My comment about Plovdiv wasn’t meant to equate going to movies with culture, it was just tongue in cheek.
Seedy, for the most part I agree with you. My degree is not in English and my written English especially my spelling is lacking to say the least. I don’t teach grammar or spelling I just teach conversational English with the intent of helping the students to practice what they have been learning in their “real” classes. My wife asks me the same questions you do about my teaching ability half the time I speak to her. Shhhh don’t tell my bosses. As far as it being of dubious worth? Maybe.
However now when the students buy their groceries in the US they will be able to understand what the other incoherent grocers are trying to communicate to them. Paper or plastic? ;)
I am not sure if you were being critical of my comment, if i am misunderstanding you I apologize. I was not making any judgments on the other aspects of culture or any judgments on culture in general.
My point and example was just to show that at least one part of the article didn't seem correct based off of my experience when it came to the numbers listed.
According to the findings, 74% of Bulgarians, or around 4 million people, did not go to the cinema in 2011.
I find this hard to believe. I teach English classes and the cinema is a common topic. from our conversation's I would say 90% of the students went to the cinema at least once and many of them a number of times.
Maybe there is truth to the saying that Plovdiv is the cultural capital of Bulgaria?
I have heard that the smoking ban includes outdoor playgrounds.
Can anyone confirm this and any ideas how it would be enforced considering there is no owner to fine (outside of posting a 24 hour police personnel)?
Maybe its a coastal vs inland thing? Although we go to the Sozopol region a couple of times a year and have never had a problem there.
Am I just lucky?
BTW are you still here?
"Try going into any restraunt, have a look at both the Bulgarian and the English Menu's and you will see different prices."
Wrong. I have lived here for seven years in the last five I have never seen different prices.
Where are you eating?
