Nice, France - September 29, 2006 (3:23pm)
My incredible journey began in South Beach, Florida, where I got this yellow T-shirt. Three flights later, I would land in a nice city called Nice, which is situated in the heart of the Côte d’Azur (the French Riviera). And here are three nice Bulgarian smiles from Mariya, George (that’s me of course) and Petya. These two beautiful young women were the first to greet me in Nice and needless to say, they were quite nice. I would have never imaged that after being so far away from both home and my homeland, that I would actually meet so many people from Bulgaria (the country where I was born in) in Nice. Apparently, there is a large population of these compatriots of mine who live there. And this was just the beginning: A few hours later, I would go to Monte-Carlo and would meet for the very first time in my life the most famous Bulgarian celebrity of them all: Sylvie Vartan. It doesn’t get much better than that!
