We leave from the Kirik's villa, where we would have happily stayed waiting for the swimming pool.
This time, however, we take the right path and in just over an hour we are in Varna, we call Niki who brings us the package (video equipment) that our production team in Milan send us (to her address).
The French family that was supposed to arrive by ferry from Georgia a few days ago didn't show up... bad sign!
We buy something from the Pekara (bakery) before heading to the elusive port of Beloslav. While we eat we're approached by a French gentleman, Daniel, who would have to take the ferry to Georgia two weeks ago (leave every two weeks), but once he arrived at the port to make the ticket he was told that they only accept Euros or Dollars and he had only Leva. They do not accept cards, so the poor Daniel goes to the ATM but the cost of the ticket exceeds the maximum withdrawable per day. In conclusion, bye bye ferry. And now he's from 15 days in Varna awaiting the ferry of tomorrow. The tickets, as we were told on the phone, are available only few hors before the beginning of the boarding. Too bad no one has told us that the departure is 20 kilometers from Varna and that you can only pay in Euros, luckily we met him!
We say goodbye to Daniel, we'll see him tomorrow and for the next four days and we're going to change our money into Euros. The road to Beloslav is quiet, only towards the end there is a slope that kills me... We meet again Daniel who is going to give food to a stray dog with whom he became friend.
We arrive at the "harbor", which is basically a parking lot where there is a dozen trucks, some cars and the caretaker. In front of us, docked in the canal leading to the Black Sea, the ferry, actually a cargo ship that has had its days. But at least it's there, it's already something!
We ask the caretaker if we can pitch our tent in the meadow near there and he says there is no problem. Well, let's go to bed early hoping that tomorrow the ship is still there and that there are no more surprises!
