Sofia, Bulgaria Today


Wonder what it's like in the capital of Bulgaria today? I've been working with Velin, a graphic designer there, and he sent me this view from his balcony.

Bulgaria is north of Turkey and Greece and borders the Black Sea. It has a population of about 7.5 million, a life expectancy of 72 year, a literacy rate of 98.6%, and an average income of $2,740 per year.

One of Velin's dreams is to spend a New Year's Eve on a tropical island.

David, you are making Bulgaria popular :D Just about the average income data. For the country in general this could be true, but for the capital city it's about $11000 more or less about 20% ;)
