The fountain with the earing


This is the official web-page of Samokov municipality. I find it very good, but unfortunately only in Bulgarian...

Last smokes

This is all year round.
On Christmas and during these last 2007' days - smokes and smells are entering my home. Samokov....

It looks like people accept the situation for normal. That is a private land - then everything is allowed!? How? Why the Municipality keeps busy and silent? Why do they clean this private land twice a week? Why no one ever really tried to stop this, to solve the problem?...

Will this continue in 2008? Kepp an eye on my blog "Through my window"

O, yes... the traditional question: "Where is Samokov?"

"" Samokov (Bulgarian: Самоков) is a town in Sofia Province in the southwest of Bulgaria. It is situated in a kettle between the mountains Rila and Vitosha.

Due to the suitable winter sports conditions, Samokov, together with the nearby resort Borovets, is a major tourist centre."""

    It's really up to you how many problems you would solve. And, of course, there are always several ways of approaching a problem. If I were in Samokov, I'd come with you to talk to them neighbours of yours. Wouldn't any FRIEND do it?
