This past weekend there was a cross cultural festival in the nearby town, Kriva Palanka. Bulgaria and Macedonia partnered up to present differences in the traditional cuisine of the two countries. Each country prepared several different dishes and when the presenter finally said that the audience could start sampling the dishes everyone literally dove at the tables. The grandmas were pushing and blocking everyone else. I have never seen people act so viciously. It was like they had never seen food before. The food was gone within minutes. ]:
