It’s a crapy day - as I type it’s pissing rain - here in Veliko Tarnovo, the historic former medieval capital of the Bulgarian tsars (there’s so much ancient history here in Bulgaria). I don’t really want to go outside but I’m going to at least take an up-close-and-personal look at the city’s number one attraction, the skyline-dominating Tsarevets Fortress, before hopping on the late morning train for Bucharest, Romania. I’ll take a few pictures in the process of getting wet but I reckon the pics I got after arriving in the city yesterday from a gloriously sunny Plovdiv will be the go-to shots for my time in Veliko Tarnovo. The weather wasn't particularly great yesterday evening either but at least it wasn't raining. This is a shot of a section of the town atop one of the four hills the city rests upon, high on a ridge over the snaking Yantra River (the greedy fortress has one of those four hills all to itself). It’s quite the setting.
