Ганвие бийч клуб

Пръснато във водите на езерото Нокуе в Бенин, Западна Африка, Ганвие е малко африканско селце, чиито къщи, магазини и ресторанти се крепят на дървени кокили, над водата. Първите заселници основават Ганвие преди повече от 500 години, озовавайки се на далечно и непознато място.

На 1 юни, на хиляди километри от Африка отвори врати Ганвие Бийч Клуб – кътче, където мирисът на море, шумът на вълни и копринено мекият пясък носят лятна сантименталност. Има още

„Who shot that?“ I point at the wolf skin on the wall while we wash down an organic beef stew with Shumensko beer.

„Mitko,“ says his grandmother.

Mitko is 14 and lives here at Wild Farm, where his scientist parents have swapped their city jobs for a radical farming lifestyle. They inherited the house and bought a few head of cattle. Ten years on, they have 500 cows and 10 woolly dogs of a famed regional breed called, like the nomadic shepherds who lived here, Karakachan. The dogs are big, and they need to be – because there is a large wolf population here in Bulgaria’s eastern Rhodopes, a mountain region with the highest biodiversity in Europe. Има още

„Bulgaria to Vulgaria“

Forget Magaluf and Malia, welcome to Sunny Beach

TWO British girls drunkenly kiss each other in front of a crowd of leering lads who howl like a pack of wolves.

One licks her pal’s breasts, which have been smeared in chocolate sauce as part of a game to win a cocktail.

Another group of girls — on their first holiday together — down five double vodkas each in the space of just ten minutes before chanting for more booze.

It is just after 5PM but already scores of British youngsters are lurching around a foam party after too many drinks. Има още

Mussel Farming in Bulgaria

Mussels have been a healthy source of food for thousands of years. Today they form part of the Bulgarian diet; they are extremely versatile and can be severed smoked, steamed, fried, boiled or in a batter. Mussels should be cleaned efficiently and checked to ensure that they are alive because they quickly become toxic when dead and can cause paralytic shellfish poisoning due to the concentrated toxins. The way to check if a mussel is alive is to study it when it is exposed to the air; if it is alive it closes tightly when disturbed. Има още
