Similar to after I was biking into town of Varna simply over every week prior, the road coming into Ruse, Bulgaria was additionally lined with prostitutes (though not practically as many as in Varna).
Upon getting into the precise metropolis heart I made my manner into the central park the place I met two very good feminine Mormon missionaries from California. Once I requested them in the event that they knew the place I may discover a high quality, but inexpensive resort for the evening, the women provided to stroll me to a close-by resort on the shores of the Danube River.
This should have been the fanciest resort in all of Ruse, and but my room value solely 40 Lev (about $26 USD). After thanking the ladies for exhibiting me to the resort, checking into my room and taking a fast bathe, I returned to the streets of Ruse and located a neighborhood restaurant the place I ordered a big vegetarian pizza to go. Whereas the pizza was being made, I walked round Ruse’s heart and snapped the pictures you see above. For a metropolis that I had by no means heard of earlier than and a spot that I had no expectations about, Ruse was actually slightly charming.
I later returned to the restaurant the place I ordered my pizza, took supply of the pie after which walked it right down to the shores of the Danube river the place I sat on a park bench and ate my well-deserved dinner because the solar set within the distance. The following day I might cycle out of Bulgaria and cross over into a brand new nation – Romania!!!
