Commenting article: The Doner Kebab as the Pinnacle of Bulgarian Diplomacy

Bulgarian Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, accompanied by several cabinet members just concluded his first official visit to Japan, in a "serious" attempt to "polish" the tarnished image of Bulgarian diplomacy after recent revelations our Embassies are swarming with agents and collaborators of the former Communist State Security.

Several events highlighted the visit turning it into a mixture of the movie "Mission London" and the 19th century story of prominent Bulgarian writer Aleko Konstantinov about the travels abroad of his famous character Bay Ganyo - the petty rose oil dealer who later turned into a big-time politician.

On the first day of the trip, Borisov missed the scheduled visit to the statue of the Great Buddha in Karakura. The 3 ministers, included in the delegation, represented him.

When young ladies are permitted from their editor in chief to post such a pamphlet on the net its questionable to carries more responsibility the author, the editor in chief or the the participants in the quoted events. One thing is clear that the Bulgarian people with its tolerance and hospitality has provided refuge to a lot of human beings mainly from the middle east already for decades...

Congratulations Maria. This is an excellent article, describing Borisov's and his clovns (Naydenov).

Oh, please! Give me a break with all this politically correct journalistic puke! You can't judge a Bulgarian Prime Minister based on Western standards of diplomacy and political correctness! I think Boyko is a wonderful Bai Ganiyo and all the pedantic journalists should mind their own business and leave him alone.

"Oh, please! Give me a break with all this politically correct journalistic puke!"

You are just jealous. The author, Maria G. is intelligent, sophisticated, writes well and, most importantly, she is one red hot babe. I was thinking of inviting Maria to dinner, but that's kinda unimaginative and boring, so I am seriously thinking of inviting her to join me for one of my regular visits to the zoo or to a pet shop (sorry Dino, you had a chance and you blew it)

"Doner Kebab is a turkish specialty"

Unfortunately, sometimes the Bulgarian equivalent does not match up to the original.

All down to taste I guess??
