Michael Franke #Berlin went for a bike ride.

09:00 - 16:00. Cool morning with cloudy mountains, but we are going downhill and soon it will be warm again. Today we go to Rila Monastery, Bulgaria's most famous and important monastery. Short visit and again 5 km back to the accommodation, again with an opulent dinner.
Another one after yesterday's tour? My legs hurt just looking at it!(When I camped at the Rila Monastery in 1988, it rained so hard that it almost washed our tent away and we moved to the monastery.)
No, that actually went very well. After breakfast first downhill and the big climb only after the lunch break. ... tomorrow it goes on.
Wonderful view from the hotel window!I like the landscape very much!Impressive, the monastery! Almost like a film set.What are the culinary offers? Lots of meat?

As a vegetarian, I skip the rich meaty one. There are many salads - Schopska, tomato, cucumber, sheep's cheese, which are always delicious. Now there are the small appetizers like grilled peppers or eggplant puree, then the starters like lentil balls or hot cheese with walnuts and finally the hot vegetable platter - one portion is enough for four people or a trout.
