Pernik Pending

If you've followed the blog since its inception, you know that I have been curious about "Mummery" and the International Masquerade Festival in Pernik, Bulgaria, since long before I ever tasted my first shopska salad, set foot on Mount Vitosha, or made friends with a neighborhood dog. I discovered this festival in the news one year ago, and now at last the time has come.

This weekend, final exam craziness permitting, we will make our way to the smallish town of Pernik, just a short jaunt to the west of Sofia, to witness the spectacle for ourselves. More to come (final exam craziness permitting)...
