Nearly two weeks ago, after living in the beautiful Bulgaria for 2,5 months, I went out for the first time. What a memorable night it was! When we got to the club after a somewhat boring dinner, I knew I was going to be have so much fun… a little too much, it turned out. The club we went to are some of the nicest ones in VT but apparently not in the whole of Bulgaria. The entrance fee was a pitiful 3 leva (€1,50) but you do get checked for not having a gun with you or any other weapon. The club was a very nice, stylish club. I have been missing that kind of atmosphere, the kind of music they played. At one o’clock, the DJ comes and starts playing Bulgarian dance music, which is really my kind of music. That’s when they also bring out the go-go dancers who are in their underwear.What also stunned me were the two percussionist who came out. You could give them a tip or buy them a drink and they would stay with you for awhile.
This being A and my first time of going out, we were in the perfect company for this. He showed us how to party, the Bulgarian style. Apparently, what they do over here, is they get a packet of paper towels and throw them. One of the percussionists, he put some of the paper towels on the drums. Then he poured a little bit of water, which made it rain a little. Right before he left, he put some alcohol on his drum and lit it up, all the while drumming. I’ve had some great, and crazy, parties over the few years but never have I seen something like this before! Mind you, I don’t go out a lot, maybe once in every couple of months but whenever I do, I guess it’s go hard or go home type of thing.
For once, I took my big camera with me, and actually used it. These pictures are from right as we got in, before it got too busy.
The great thing when you go out in Bulgaria, is that when you get a spot for you and your mates, you won’t have to worry about that spot being taken away from you. As a woman, you can also leave your purse on the stool without having to worry if it will be taken from there. Some people even reserve tables beforehand to make sure they have the nicest spots in the club, we just made sure we were early enough there.
