There's a party and I'm not at it

There is some serious drumming going on somewhere in the village and I can feel it echoing through my house. Today is a holiday of some sort (it was explained to me but I kinda forgot...) but I stayed in because it's raining. Wasn't feeling too hard core tonight. Plus, I talked to Catherine on the phone for THREE hours! Miss her.

The highlight of the week would be the Bansko Internation Jazz Fest. On Tuesday I went with Eva (in the rain) and we heard three great groups. A name I don't remember, JazzEx, and Candy Dulfer. Lady rocked out. She reminded me of myself during my jazz band days. Or not at all. :)

Still practicing my Bulgarian picture face. Obviously, I'm not good at it.

Candy Dulfer

Went again on Thursday but spent all day in Bansko with 3 other PCV's. There was an American, Jamie Davis, performing so we met up with one of the Embassy workers. Thursday was a good day... and I think it was the only day it didn't rain this week!
Eva, me, Kellen (another PCV)

That's all I got. Except for another recipe:
It's kind of like crepes... or a very thin pancake. And very easy.

- 3 Eggs
- 1 Tbs Oil
- Pinch of salt, pinch of sugar
- 1.5 cups Milk
- 1 cup Flour
Oil skillet, turn stove on high.
Ladle batter into hot skillet.
Flip over when side one is cooked.
When done, fill with Nutella, fruit, jam, peanut butter, etc.

(If the palachinka is too fat, add milk. If the palachinka has holes, add flour to the mix.)

I'm more concerned about the party without your presence.
