Have you felt special treatment in Bulgaria because you are foreigners?
Khadije: The things are mostly good. No one calls me "foreigner." The kids at school are good.
Radjab: We are well here. No problems.
Masume, have you been discriminated against, because you are a woman?
Masume: No. We have only administrative problems. Why are hey not granting us refugee status?
Is there anything typically Bulgarian?
Khadije: We cannot answer this question. We can say only good things about the Bulgarians. We love Bulgarians.
Did Bulgaria surprise you?
Khadije: No. The food is also similar to ours: rice, vegetables.
Do you have Bulgarian friends?
Khadije: Yes, we do. At school.
Radjab: Yes. The neighbours around the camp.
Do you know anything about Bulgarian holidays?
Khadije: Yes – Baba Marta, Christmas and Easter, when you colour eggs. We put on Martenitsa.
Describe Bulgaria in three words.
Radjab: Nice seasons. Good people. I like Bulgaria.
Do you plan to stay in Bulgaria?
Khadije: We want to live here. Because we love Bulgaria and we want to have a decent life. I love studying history and biology, I love all the subjects, sometimes I am thinking of becoming a doctor, but more I want to become an archaeologist. I love archeology.
Narges: We are also learning to play the guitar.
