BUL­GAR­IAN RHAP­SODY

DestinAsian - - CONTRIBUTORS & LETTERS -

I’m a com­plete fan of your Asia-based sto­ries and those are the rea­sons I keep pick­ing up your mag­a­zine; be­ing based in the re­gion, I find sto­ries about des­ti­na­tions in Asia to be the most rel­e­vant (and prac­ti­cal) for me. But I have to say that the re­cent ar­ti­cle on Bul­garia’s south­ern moun­tains was an eye-opener [“Road to the Rhodopes,” Dec. 2014/Jan. 2015]. What re­mark­able cos­tumes and cus­toms they have, not to men­tion the an­cient ru­ins dat­ing back to the days of Alexander. It’s a long way to go from Hong Kong, but my in­ter­est is suf­fi­ciently piqued to con­sider mak­ing the trip and brav­ing the cold weather. I just wish the story came with an ac­com­pa­ny­ing guide to Sofia, which I’m sure any­one would want to ex­plore en route to the Rhodopes. —Matt He­ston, Hong Kong
