I visited Sofia in January, where I saw firsthand the impressive progress your nation has made since independence and the coming of demokratsiya more than two decades ago. I walked your famous yellow brick roads and marveled at the frescoes of St. George Church. It was along those same yellow bricks that Bulgarians held candle light vigils, sang the same protest ballads as Americans did in the 1960s, and peacefully brought an end to communism at the base of Vitosha Mountain.
