My short visits to Bulgaria are always super intense. The good is FANTASTIC and the hard is not merely difficult, it SUCKS. The interesting is worth talking about for hours and the sad does not simply spoil the mood, it makes me SOB. I am very happy but also physically and emotionally exhausted.
I am not sure why that is the case... My one theory is that exhaustion sharpens the senses. Hence, the hyper-awareness and stuff. But I would be interested to hear what you guys think. Are your visits home, wherever that is, as intense as my returns to Bulgaria? Why?
How do you cope?
