Hello Candy Apple and hi again Jessica. Jessica, I wrote a long reply about abortions and abandoned children and missed Your question about whether I am Muslim. I post my repply now before I forget - No, I'm not a Muslim, never have been and I think never will be. I am an atheist or agnostic if You like and am interested in religion as a philosophy and in religious jurisprudence as well.

Candy Apple, Bulgaria is a very small country just north of Greece. It is about the size of Tennessee or Virginia in terms of both surface and population. Very mountainous. An interesting place to visit for those keen on archeology - the oldest gold filligran ever made was discovered there. Lots of Thracian, Hellenic, Bysantine, Ottoman ruins as well. Some towns are 6000 years old. It is sadly the poorest EU country with the lowest wages. On the positive side - has the lowest corporate and personal tax in the EU - 10%. the population now stands at about 7million but was 30 years ago 9m. All Balkan countries except Kosovo are loosing population because of extremely low natality, high mortality and high emigration rates for some countries. For 500 years Bulgaria was under Ottoman yoke. The Ottoman Empire ruled most of the Balkans, all of the North African Mediterranean coast up to the river Moulouya (up to Morocco) Egypt, Sudan, most of today's Middle East. France chased the Turks (Ottomans) from Algeria and colonised it hahaha.

Carl Djerassi - the inventor of female contraceptive pill is of Bulgarian origin. Rita Wilson whose birth name is Margarita Ibrahimova is a Balkan girl - her mother is an ethnic Greek from Albania and her dad a Pomak - Bulgarian Muslim. Google Pomaks - they are a very ancient community with interesting Pagan and pre- Islamic traditions. They inhabit the Rhodopes mountains in Greece and Bulgaria. There are Pomak communities in Macedonia, Turkey, Albania, Bosnia. I find Rita Wilson and Jennifer Aniston have something in common and look a bit alike. Jen has some Greek roots through her father.

You can get reading. For knowledge nowadays You don't even have to get out of Your house. There is so much info on the net, it's crazy. I was in my youth a library rat lol. Spent all my free time in libraries. Travelling does not teach much I think. It's best to first read and learn and then travel to see. Where are You based if it's not a secret? The whole Paris area is now dangerous, sorry. Yesterday the army shot down a terrorist at Orly aeroport. The bastard managed to shoot a policeman in the face and to flee. But I am confident it will get better and We'll see brighter days.

As I told You those N. Africans spend their time contacting foreigners anywhere they find them. It's a job for them and often pays well. Maybe a friend of a friend of Yours left a comment somewhere and they browsed his contacts if they were public. I have only 2 or 3 times been contacted by mistake by people who thought We were related. They were polite, never pushy, never pursued conversations and left me alone. The amount of Egyptians and other N. Africans contacting me was insane. But I never add them, always block. Problem is, once You talk to them they contact You from other accounts or ask their thousands of fellow rats to contact You. You might have noticed one never learns anything useful from those men. Only empty talk and wasted time.

Greetings
