We decided to go on a little vacation this weekend, and chose to hole up at Хотел Катарино, a spa resort in the foothills of the Rila Mountains. The hotel is nice, ostensibly rated four stars. The restaurant is nice, as well. My favorite this here, other than the free wireless internet, is the pool.

I haven’t been swimming in… years. For someone who competed at the Junior Olympics, and could at one time swim miles without stopping, my current ability is embarrassing. But my girls don’t know that. We spent the whole day pruning up in the water, teaching my little babooshkas how to doggy paddle, and that going underwater isn’t really all that scary.

My eldest was a monster – jumping into the deep end with no regard for her safety. If she keeps this up, she’ll either be a natural competitor, or drown before she turns six!
