Statues...Golden Sands

We learned more about how to catch a cheap taxi.  Mira told us that the cheap taxis have more writing on the actual sides of the car.  The taxis that try to rip you off have very little or no writing at all.

We took a taxi out to Golden Sands, a resort area with better beaches, with our guide Mira.  The taxi ride took about 20 minutes and only cost 11 BGN.  We walked around for awhile, until it started raining so we ducked into a restaurant.  We had some traditional Bulgarian treats ordered for us by Mira.  After the rain, we went down onto the beach.  Sunbeds were expensive and it was getting late, so we just sat on the sand.  The bugs pestered us pretty wickedly, so we didnt end up staying on the beach long.  Golden Sands is a very touristy, yeah its a word, part of Varna.  So be prepared if you enter.  Many locals sand in the streets giving out pamphlets to the many bars and restaurants.  Warning: if you dont acknowledge the girls working, the get pretty upset.  So a kind, no thank you, goes a long way here.

Mira took us to a restaurant where her brother works along the ocean.  It was called Sardinia.  Another warning: the menus are in Bulgarian only, no English menus.  So we just had Mira order for us and it turned out pretty good.  I was feeling a bit strange, i went home a little early, while the girls went out for some drinks.
