Честита Баба Марта!

Today is the first day of March and one of my favorite Bulgarian holidays - Baba Marta. I've mentioned this celebration before, and I'm really missing all the hoopla. I want to exchange red and white friendship bracelets, wish my friends health and happiness, and watch the skies for storks over the coming month. Just missing Bulgaria.
I talked to a couple of my Bulgarian girlfriends today, and they were telling me a bit about an anti-AIDS/HIV concert that they had. Their idea was funded by the Peace Corps, and they got about 100+ people to come out on a Saturday (and Valentine's Day no less) to be entertained and learn a bit about HIV and AIDS. I'm so incredibly proud of them. Today also marks a year since we did our first project together: a fundraiser for a sick classmate. I only wish that I had been there to take part this time.
In other news, I'm still trying to find my way. I'm counting on God to show me what's next.

Можеш ли да ми изпратиш PDF на "Cambio: The Exchange Rate of Travel"? Ще ми е интересно да го прочета. Имаш ми имейла, нали?

Oh, sorry I missed you! I just discovered your blog, because I posted my own entry about Bulgarian head shaking, and found yours from 2005.
