Our first taste of wrestling

Posted on Apr 19, 2016 in Bulgaria

The sun rises on our second day in Bulgaria. Everyone slept well last night and feels refreshed for a busy and exciting day. The hotel served us a delicious traditional breakfast with eggs, feta cheese, cucumbers and tomatoes. The adults had espresso and the kids drank tea. We have two practices scheduled with the Vasil Levski team – freestyle this morning at 10 am, and Greco this afternoon at 5pm. We will also have the honor of meeting Peter Delev’s coach this evening at our team dinner.

This afternoon we will have a guided tour of Old Plovdiv. It is one of the oldest cities in all of Europe and has been chosen as the European cultural capital for 2019. If the ancient stadium we saw yesterday is any indication, today’s tour should be educational and awe-inspiring.
