Basil Brush in Yambol

It was quite a shock to turn up at the Yambol Mall and find that Basil Brush had arrived. His very patriotic sports car made no doubt that he was from the UK. On asking some shoppers whether they knew what this fox's name was, they drew a blank. Pretty sure that hardly any Bulgarian here would know his name as Basil Brush, not surprisingly.

Artillery in a Yambol Based Cadet Compound

Found this in the NW Yambol just out of the City centre. An old Artillery equipment based in a now non working cadet compound. You can also see a fighter jet in the background to match up the one on display close to the Bazaar. There were men working in the compound so I had to be quite discreet and secretive when taking picture here. If I'd have been seen it could have been difficult as I wasn't meant to be in this area.

Sinbad - A Popular Fast Food Place in Yambol

If you have ever been to Yambol and walked along the long pedestrian, you will recognise this place. Called 'Sinbad', it has been a fast food centre for many years and remains very popular to Bulgarians. Having been tempted to snack there myself on many occasions, nice to know they continued do a good serving of ayran (yogurt drink) with pizza slices. Many children feed there everyday, which is not good and also it is frequented by gypsies who take picking of left overs from bins.

A Hole in the Ground in Yambol

Good job it was daylight and I was aware of my surround otherwise it could have been a nasty experience. This hole in the ground just appeared before me as I tramped over some rough ground in Yambol. It had obviously been use as a drainage point at some time but the infrastructure surrounding it and its purpose has moved on with the hole remaining. This is a common find in Yambol.

A Yambol Bus Passing Through

You have to be quick to catch these Yambol Buses passing through. This one sped passed me like there was no tomorrow. I still can't understand why they have three doors, but suspect that the front one is the entrance and the other two are exits.
