I had a great weekend. Friday night I went to Wok to Walk with two of my teacher friends A. and M. A. and I have have officially become regulars. That’s fun. We walked in the line was a mile long–okay 6 to 8 people deep–and we both got big hellos from the employees. We ordered in Bulgarian–they laughed. The line stood still for us and the joking around.
Then we walked down the street for a couple of beers with colleagues at Murphy’s one of the Irish bars in town. It’s always nice catching up with people outside of work or somewhere other than the lunch table when everyone in stressed out and rushing around.
A. and I popped into the Vitosha Memento after Murphy’s because they have a great atmosphere and had a glass of wine before heading home. Once again, we said hello to the staff there. Oh and many of our hellos were to people who weren’t actively working there but hanging out at the cafe/bar that they also work at. I think it’s a good sign if the staff like the place enough to spend their free time there!!
Saturday morning I went to a yoga workshop at Yoga Mendala lead by Nanci Traynor. She was really great and the class was very inspiring. I spent most of Sunday sore–but the good kind of sore where you realize, you’d better get more serious about your yoga practice and that you weren’t at fit as you were once were. This said, I was equally proud of myself to be able to do two hours of flow yoga after breaking my hand two months ago.
Then I spend Saturday afternoon in a whirlwind of shopping and hanging out with friends. A. and I were clearly making shop owners’ afternoons, if not weekends. I found a couple of great new scarves, two new necklaces and some really wonderful handmade martenitsi. We then met up with two other friends and played Settlers.
Sunday I got up and cleaned my apartment. A girl’s got to do these things sometimes.
Sunday afternoon I met some friends at The Mall and we saw the movie Beautiful Creatures. It was amazingly awful but perfect for a movie at the mall at the end of the weekend.
I capped the whole thing off with a two hour skype call with my parents. Oh how I love skype.
