Rudartsi, Bulgaria - December 29, 2007 (4:00pm)
My cousin Tedi and his wife Verónica took me out for lunch at the Saint George Restaurant. They also gave me an icon of Saint George as a XMAS present. That was certainly very appropriate for someone with a name like mine! On that wooden sign is carved the name St. George (in Bulgarian). He is my favorite saint and protects me from evil spirits and wicked witches. According to the legend, he will face a mean fire-breathing dragon and rescue a beautiful princess (Snow White) and they will live happily ever after!
