Frolicking Bulgarian Birds

Strange Fountain

The other day, as Erika and I were wandering around the central square in Ruse, Bulgaria, we stopped to look at an odd fountain. For the life of us, we could not make out what it was the man was carrying and/or struggling with. Was it an alligator? In Bulgaria?

Then, as we puzzled over the figure, we noticed a handful of frolicking Bulgarian birds-sparrows, we think-splashing around in the water. It’s short, but it was so adorable, we had to share since it provided a nice juxtaposition to the somewhat grotesque figure above.
