Billy was a trooper throughout our trip- despite the cold, being in a push chair, and not getting to touch all the colorful shop items! He was most excellent at napping on the go- a perfect mini-traveller.
The courtyard of a Mexana restaurant, a tavern serving traditional Bulgarian food.
Old Bulgarian women. These women were sitting outside of a different shop every day- but always in traditional dress and with stern expressions. I took this shot paparazzi-like, over Sarah's shoulder- I am always reluctant to treat other people as though they are tourist attractions, even if I am being a hypocrite about it!
There were several antique shops, selling everything from old ski gear to communist uniforms.
The buildings in Old Bansko were much more traditional- in fact, despite being literally down the main road from the tourist area of Bansko, Old Bansko was practically a different town.

Most houses in Old Bansko had walled and gated courtyards- the doors were quite simple but beautiful.

The ice was beautiful with the hot springs bubbling through.

I think this little guy is fantastic!
