I love (certain types) of poetry, sometimes it's nice to just read and ponder...
I see you're from Bulgaria :) I heard some Bulgarian once- in a TV show (the vampire diaries? Lol)- and I thought it sounded so nice, I felt like learning the language! If I could learn all the languages I wanted to, I could be a linguistic experiment :P
Lovely name, btw!
It must be beautiful
I'm travelling all around Europe at the moment, but I'm staying a while in Norway and studying. I've always been fascinated with Scandinavia!
Haha, funny to read that you love raw herring with onion, I just can't eat that! We have some strange habits here, ever heard of this book: http://www.dutchshop.nl/thedutch/tdspecs.html? I you like the Dutch culture it's really one you'd like, it covers all our weird habits from hagelslag to Sinterklaas ;)
did I tell you how much I like your name ;) yes I have seen the movie The Mistress of Spices, and I loved it, I love any movie with Aishwarya Rai starring in it. as for the book, it is on my wish list, I haven't read it yet. but good or bad, I am gonna read. I love the concept of the story.
I know, there are some Bulgarian people living in the area I live, I live in the West of the Netherlands, there is a lot of work in this area, because of the airport and the flowerbusiness. I myself work at an construction compagnyas a personelmanager. [br/][br/]BTW I love eating a cooked meal with yoghurt, I really like that, but it's not common in the Netherlands. Must be confusing for foreingers visiting Bulgaria when you mean YES but the visitor thinks you're saying NO. Funny![br/][br/]Why do we read Harry Mulish so much, well first of all it's our most famous writer I believe, so a lot of schools put his books on the readinglist, so you have to read it. Once you read one book, I guess you read more books written by him, although I haven't read so much books he written. But the one I did read Discovery of heaven, I really liked it a lot.
Yeah, we're quite funny when I read your remarks. I do love hagelslag on my sandwiches, I even know somebody who makes sandwiches with pindabutter and then hagelslag or sugar on top of that, and yes, we don't find that weird. The trains are never on time, but you are right, they are clean when they finally arrive. And taking the train in the fall, always delays because of leafs on the rails.
But it is nice to live in Holland, I don't know much about Bulgaria though. But one nice thing is that my little niece was learning the capitals of Europe at school and the first capital she knew was the capital of Bulgaria. That's because her best friends name is Sofia. She thought it was amazing that a capital was named after her best friend (okay, the capital was there before the best friend, but we will explain that some time later to her).
Funny you are learing Dutch, you don't hear that a lot. I'm sure you find some unexpected things about my culture. I read once a book by 2 English men (the book is called The Undutchables). It's about how foreingers the Dutch people see and what's weird in their eyes. I had so much fun reading it, because a lot of things of which I think are normal, reading how foreingers look at it, makes you think, okay, it might be a little strange and funny. I'm curious what you think is different or funny.
Hi Tatyana, you read lots of new books. I've read lots of old books, since I don't have much time for reading and I'm a slow reader and there is so much good old stuff. So, not much in common. I only read The Name of the Rose which I thought was ok, but not great. Do I understand correctly that I can help you get a new book or is it just a tip your after? The last book I finished was Harry Mulisch's Twee vrouwen. Loved it! Cheers, Renée
