That being said, yesterday was a relief because after sleeping in and having a nice lunch, we hopped in our air conditioned van with another driver and headed to Rila Monastery. According to everything we had read, it was a “must see.” I think it took about 2 hours to get there, but the drive was really pretty, full of mountains and villages along the way.
