WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU? © Anthony Georgieff

You drive through nondescript villages populated mainly by ethnic Turks, past animal farms that stink of dung and mosques whose minarets stick up into the sky, until a turn of the road takes you directly opposite a site that suggests North America rather than the Balkans.

You pull over by the side of the road and you are simply  dumbfounded: a huge horseshoe bend is just in front of you. You pinch yourself and then you realise you are not in Arizona, but in the midst of the Bulgarian Rhodope, and the river you are staring at is one of this country's longest water sources that feeds several reservoirs, some of them very big, and that goes through most of the Rhodope's dramatic scenery before it leaves Bulgaria and hits the Aegean Sea.

Where in Bulgaria are you?
