No Firearms Allowed in Yambol

Firearms, Yambol,

Always give a hint of fear thinking that people would be carrying firearms anywhere let alone in this one place that bans it. I wouldn't argue with someone carrying one if they did enter with a firearm!

A Sideways Look at The Mall Yambol

Sideways, Yambol, The Mall Yambol,

the Mall Yambol looks impressive from most angles, but from the main road it doesn't capture too much glamour. The garage parking entrance is just on the nearside left, but not used that much in the main due to parking fees in excess of the blue zone fees outside.

A Dead Rat in Yambol

Dead Rat, Yambol,

Seeing a dead rat is quite unusual in Yambol. Normally they are alive and thriving, so I don't know why this particular rat wasn't part of the rat parties they have here. The many cats which frequent the place this was found are scared of them so it wasn't hunted down by them.

More Neglected Buildings in Yambol's Main Hospital

Neglected, Buildings, Yambol, Hospital,
Yet more evidence of neglect and lack of investment in Yambol's main Hospital grounds. As you can see the facade of this building is in a state bordering on dangerous. How much longer will it sit there unattended?

Outdoor Hospital Bed in Yambol

Outdoor, Hospital, Bed, Yambol,

Whilst walking through the main Hospital grounds in Yambol I came across a section where someone was sleeping under the stairway. Surely not normal to have patients sleeping in beds outside. Notice also there is a stairway to nowhere. By the way this place is a surgery that treats children.

Uniform Lined Up Garages in Yambol

Uniform, Lined Up, Garages, Yambol,
The uniformity of these green garages caught my eye situated in the Eastern side of Yambol. Not just the uniformed colour and shape but the numbers that count down as you go into the distance. If you look carefully you can still see a little bit of Winter hanging around even though we are deep into Spring now.
