The food supply is OK. Nothing to complain from my point of view. One
bread costs around 12 Leva. The transport in Sofia is easily done by tram
or bus or taxi, if you like. Don't expect the tram to have western standard,
they are very loud, but they are working. The administration is busy to
install a subway system, but it's not yet working. Travelling in the country
can be done by bus or train. Busses are going very frequently and to almost
everywhere. What I don't like that much is that as a foreigner you have to
register 48 hours after your arrival at the local administration, if you're
living in a hotel it can be done there. If you like southern kitchen and
vegetables, you will probably appreciate bulgarian food. The wine is
comparable to french wine (Bordeaux type).
Best wishes for your trip
