Maybe somebody may explain to me how the caverns of the South Pole Ice affects the Bulgarian Climate Changes.

Next I need an explanation of the effects of the Southern Hemisphere wind currents and its effect to the Balkan beach weather.

Imagine a Penguin in Sofia or a whale swimming in the Balkans with its offsprings, what a beautiful site.

Imagine a Bulgarian South Pole "Big Foot" creature walking down the street in Sofia.

We need more information concerning the Bulgarian Expedition at the South Pole.
