Nedyalko's Trip to Bulgaria

 May, 2005, Nedyalko: I visited quite a few villages in central Thrace, where I learned some new dances, brought in several musical instruments, among which a tapan and a gaida, and was extremely lucky to collect several original Thracian costumes and twenty folkdance costumes.
