From Abernassi to Veliko Tărnovo

Another couple of hours and we’re at Veliko Tărnovo for the night. The town is built up the side of a hill and across the valley is the castle, Tsarevets, and old walled town. We sat on a patio overlooking the valley to the castle (I took this pic the following morning – more of that later)

The 20-minute sound and light show was excellent and told the story of a furious battle to defend the castle. 

Being a light show it naturally started after dark. And, being a light show taking place about a mile away on the other side of the valley, we had a terrific view of the entire event in the night sky.

I wondered how much the people filming the show on their smartphones appreciated the event. I had a furtive glance at the person next to me and all I saw was a 5″ black screen with not too memorable squiggly flashes.
