Good Bye, Lenin! | Sofia, Bulgaria

… or, how the mighty have fallen.

The experience of sitting in the Toba&Co bar, located at the back of the former palace and the current national gallery in Sofia, is pleasurable as it is. But, in addition to the hot chocolate, the blankets on the chairs in the autumn and spring, and the standing sculptures scattered around the small park it overlooks, an unexpected and easy to miss delight is the absurd view of a large monument of Lenin – lying belly down and arm outstretched, in the grass.
