What's happening in Bulgaria?

Jump to last reply

It hasn't even made the news here, but when I googled, I discovered that Sofia has had 2 weeks of protesters in the streets, demanding that the government resign.
I know nothing of Bulgaria. A friend and I are taking a Greek island cruise in Sept., with a few days in Athens, and considered adding another country at the beginning or end(listen, return air from here is over $1400, so while I'm there...). Bulgaria sounded like a great contrast: scenery, villages, walking, few tourists.
Fodorites have got contacts everywhere, so I'm hoping someone has some knowledge: is this a minor political squabble, or could going there involve serious trouble? We haven't booked air tickets yet, so we aren't committed.
Judging by the web reports, things are chaotic but not dangerous there now. But the web reports tend to be brief and bare-bones. Where is this going?
Anyone have an informed opinion?
