Today was the first day of snow for this winter season in Bulgaria and for the locals it is always a special day and a time to enjoy the wonderful view outside with some (preferably home-made) red wine. Probably more than anywhere else in the country, it is a special event in Sofia as the snow manages to muffle all the sounds of the big city and the streets become magically quiet and shiny from the fresh snow. Unfortunately the excitement of the people in Sofia is reduced substantially on week days like today due to the unavoidable traffic jams, but at the end of the day the Christmas spirit spreads over the place. So here’s my happy first snow to everyone with a few photos from evening Sofia right after the first day of snow.
