Up next was a bus ride to Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria.
Situated on three hills along the Yantra river, Veliko Tarnovo has some breathtaking views, great traditional and historical atmosphere, as well as lots of cats and old ladies taking care of them.
I stayed in the city for a whole month, visiting also the nearby villages and wandering in the nature, which is truly amazing: hills, springs, waterfalls, caves, etc. I also learnt to read cyrillic letters, which was a nice bonus.
The first piano I found was found in the balcony of a place called Dada bar. The piano has been on the balcony for quite some time, since the previous owners of the bar brought it there. I was warned that it is in a bad condition, but of course that didn’t stop me.
So, not knowing what I’m gonna get, we went to capture the measure 19 of the song at the Dada bar. As you can see in the video, you can conveniently enter the balcony of the bar directly via stairs from the backside. Nice!
