Plovdiv Old Town

We walked up the steep hill to the old town area of Plovdiv. The cobbles were steep and well polished; this place must be a nightmare when it’s icy! Plovdiv is a centre for Bulgarian arts and crafts and we enjoyed watching the traditional crafts being made in their little studios. Julie bought a pair of bead bracelets for her two daughters; The man making them explained that having lots of beads on you protected you from evil; if the devil couldn’t count the beads, then you were safe.
