Bansko is an especially popular ski resort destination in south Bulgaria.
I found myself there during the last days of October, a few days before the opening of the high touristic season.
I took a late evening walk, during a small break.
I came across some eco friendly municipal installations
and some not so friendly "no parking" scribblings
Some houses were still portraying their long-dead owners
while on other walls the elections candidates where displaying their best smiles
In the meantime, autumn was at its peak
with the crispy leaves laying all over the pavements
there is a sample of local door architecture
does anyone know what "malzeb" stands for?
on my way back to my hotel, as the temperature was falling rapidly
the snowy mountain top made quite clear what the main purpose of this resort is
but my attention was drawn to anything but skiing; horses
spooky park paths
and psychedelic mushrooms
the dark fell, with freezing temperatures
and the snowy top was looking even less attractive for the non brave
