Subject: RE: Folklore: BULGARIA Koprivshtitsa Festival
I attended the festival (my 3rd time) and it was, as usual, absolutely fantastic. According to the official programme, 16,000 participants and 200,000 punters attend!

The organisation of the British Bulgarian Friendship Society who I travelled with was excellent and I would strongly recommend their tours to Bulgaria which I think is a very under-rated country.

It was also very encouraging to see the national TV station covering a lot of the action.

The next festival will be in 2010 and I sincerely hope to be there.
