Bulgarika 5


Bulgarika 5



Mini disco

at eight pm means

dancing in the sand

after the

son goes down in dry

Varna.  Hot

But, with cool overtaking,

Gymnastics ensues

On the beach stage.  Are

Nikolay and Marina

still in the

woods painting?  Are all

four Russians in the

same room? As

three Ivanas dance

and twenty

others hit the beach stage from

Saint Petersburg, are

they amateur or

professional?  Each morning

they stretch to

the commands of the three coaches

who themselves

have more than one set

of priorities.

Then sun sets,

tide rises, a six-year-old

builds with sand

as sisters frolic

a weary lady waits.
