It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

In many ways, being in Sofia at Christmas is… well, just like being in any other European city at Christmas. It has the obligatory German market…

…and tacky sponsored Christmas lights.

Almost as bad as the Marmite-sponsored lights in Oxford St…

But then, just when you think it’s become another bland, homogenous European city, you stumble across a kangaroo covered in snow, or someone snowboarding on the Soviet Monument and you realise it will take far more than a few bits of Christmassy tat to cover up Sofia’s character.

Not an average activity on a national monument…
