HI,
There are a lot of supermakets in Smoylan, none in Pamporovo. If you want english food you will have to stop at the Metro in Plovdiv.Not much choice though. Heinz baked beans are available at £1 a tin!!!! BG beans are nicer. Really snowed in here, up to the windows and still falling.
Merry Christmas

Hi Di,
Thanks for you help with the supermarkets,you must have a lot of snow if its up to your window,do you have a car ? can you not get out of the village ? we will probably get to our house in February and get snowed in for a week by the sounds of it,sounds like you need to stock up on food etc,is the snow worse than you expected,sounds nice and cosy.

Karen,

You may be as well stocking up at Sofia or do like we do stick to Bulgarian food although some of it may not be your cup of tea, I am not over keen on the lung and liver soup, however some of their specialities are really nice.

Bon appetite

Snowy.

Hi karen,

Smolyan is OK you can get most things there even Presno Mlyako, the first time we visited BG we ended up with a fridge full of yoghurt as a lot Bulgarian phrase books refer Mlyako as milk.

Luckily our neighbor has a cow so when we are over its brought to the door, where abouts is Banite? i don't have a country map at hand only the Rhodopi's.

We are back in May and mid July, keep in touch.

Snowy.

Hi Snowy,
Hope you like yoghurt !
Banite is East between Smoylan and Kardjali its a spa village,the actual name of our village is Gorna Dryanka,we are going to BG on 8th Feb so trying to get organised with thermals etc.Bit concerned about driving in the snow,think we be ok getting as far as Smoylan but not sure how well roads have been cleared from Smoylan to Banite,oh well it will be an experience !!!!!! i will let you know how we get on.

Thanks for the tip on the milk spelling,my phrase book same as yours.
Hope my neighbours got a cow.
