This doorbell system was found on a Block in Yambol, not only was it broken with live wires hanging out, but none of the bell had numbers or names on. So how do you know who you are calling? Guess it does have some sort of function once known and memorised.

Amongst the other play apparatus in this Yambol playground is a rock feature. However I am not sure whether it was man made or just a natural rock form that was decided to be left as it was. Quite unique for that matter and an ideal place to sit or perch on if yo are a child.

This grand forefront of a Yambol house shows a fine garden beyond the gates. One things is for sure the owners are quite well to do, possibly foreign as this isn't typical in terms of practicability with no fruit trees or signs of vegetables being produced. This place however does stick out in the midst of poverty in the surrounding area.

Another common sight throughout the year is logs piled for winter in Yambol. They stay out most of the year to dry out in the summer ready for the winter so this you would also see in the summer, not necessarily on the first floor though. Quite a cosy sight all the same.

Well it was quite a surprise to turn the corner and find Sponge Bob Square Pants staring at me. The cartoon character now has a place in Yambol albeit made up of a metal boxed telephone junction. Quite a rare sight I might add in Yambol.

They are now slightly more modern trucks but the contents are the same in terms of fuel for winter. Logs for woodburners are essential for winter warmth and is the main place source of energy in villages and many town homes. It is also the least expensive form of heating which is why it is still used by so many.
