Koprivshtitsa, Bulgaria

We spent a leisurely Saturday afternoon with some friends in a nice village called Koprivshtitsa. It is located about 2 hours southeast of Sofia. We borrowed a friend's car for the adventure. The town is that which hosted the uprising against the Ottoman Rule in the late 1800's and there are many museums dedicated to the event.the Mr. Bean face for our friend Dave in front of the sign entering the city of Chelopech.

the snowy rooftops of the village
the best couple ever!
hay is for horses?
