Koprivshtitsa (with sun!)

Koprivshtitsa, a tiny village in the mountains, is one of Bulgaria's "museum towns," a picturesque nod to the golden age of Bulgarian architecture, and only an hour and a half from Sofia.  My parents were in town for the weekend, and we decided to make a visit, since the last time we went everything was closed (for Monday?!) and covered with snow.  This time the weather was perfect, and it seemed that every corner presented a new wandering opportunity.  We aimlessly followed the winding village streets for a few hours, and then settled in for a traditional lunch (shepherd's salad, tarator soup, and pork tongue) at an outdoor cafe.

Below are a few of the homes which are now museums.
