Well, after leaving Thessaloniki at 6:55 on the train to Sofia, I spent seven long hours in that carriage. It was eased by the pleasant scenery outside the window, and some good music on the headphones. Nonetheless, an epic journey.
A visit to the underwhelming archeological museum (perhaps I’m just getting museum fatigue!)and then the impressive St. Alexandar Nevski Cathedral, and I’m calling it a day (after dinner!) Another train journey tomorrow, even earlier – 6:40 (to Plovdiv).
