This is a shot of George and a happy, but slightly embarrassed-by-all-the-attention Rhowan. George lives in a nearby village, and invited us round to celebrate Gergyovden (St. George's day). This was a great day for us to celebrate too, as it was exactly a year since Libby and the kids first came out to join me in Bulgaria.

Dinner was a whole baby goat (minus it's head) that was cooked in a traditional oven: served with a form of mushroom risotto, salad and Rakia. Well, the Rakia had been a pervasive feature of the entire visit, not just dinner, and by the time we left I'd drunk more than enough to keep me going until the same time next year. All in all, it was a good, if somewhat different way to spend the day :-)

If you're interested, this one was converted to black and white using the Channel Mixer, as described in my Black and White: part one tutorial.
