time to kill

We had an evening flight from Sofia on Saturday which gave us an opportunity to explore the Bulgarian capital before we lit out.

And so it came to pass that I got to compare and contrast the sublime Alexander Nevsky Cathedral echoing to orthodox chant, with the chanting and running battles that accompanied the "eternal derby" between CSKA (Sofia) and Levski (Sofia).

Disaffected, pudgy, tattooed, shaven headed, closet mummy's boys are the same the world over I guess. I want nothing whatsoever to do with them, and couldn't give a monkey's why they are so cross.

A little later my mood dipped again as I ended my media fast (Icons passim) by arriving in Gatwick at the same time as the last chartered flight shipping beleaguered Brits out of Tripoli.

Prodnose: Maghreb is an Arabic word literally meaning "place of sunset."

Myself: You got that right, buddy.
