In Which Bulgaria Tries To Get On My Mind

"There was a more concrete agreement today to allow Eurostat, the Union’s statistical agency, to audit countries suspected of falsifying economic data. Eurostat would be able to “visit and have access to all information it deems necessary,” said Elena Salgado, the Spanish finance minister, who chaired the talks on this issue.

Olli Rehn, the European commissioner for economic and monetary affairs, identified Bulgaria as one country where the new powers might be used."

That's an incredible building. What is it? Speaking of Bulgarian, this past Saturday I performed a work by Bulgaria's greatest composer, Pancho Vladigerov. Bulgarian music is seriously something special.

Thanks, John.

Its the main building of the fortified Rila Monastery complex which I hope that you will have an opportunity to visit if you are in Bulgaria.

I will look into Vladigerov. Thanks for the recommendation.
