Pazardzhik, Bulgaria.

37 kilometers West of Plovdiv is the small town called Pazardzhik. We spent an evening there exploring the multiple pedestrian shopping streets, eating a variety of organ meat dishes and scanning the large outdoor market.

We meet Mormons in the strangest places, last time was in the miniscule town of Monfalcone, Italy and now Pazardzhik!?! These handsome young men flew in from Utah to serve a proselytizing mission, watch out Bulgarian Orthodox people, you too can wear snappy suits and fancy nametags .

Though everyone is extremely nice and cheerful there is a huge poverty problem in Bulgaria, it is especially apparent in the smaller cities.
