Does anybody know how to handle following issue while staying at the rainbow side:
All travelers are required to register with the regional passport office for foreigners or the police within 48 hours after their arrival in the country and to inform the office about any change in their address. For those staying at a hotel, a private boarding house, or an apartment rented through an accommodation company, registration is taken care of by the proprietor. The Bulgarian authorities do not consider presentation of a copy of the passport sufficient for identification purposes. Visitors should carry their original passports with them at all times.

Subject:  Informations about the 22nd European Rainbow Gathering in Bulgaria

Hello sisters and brothers!

Bag your packs whenever you decide and make your direction to Bulgaria !

The seed-camp begins at 2nd of july, so if anybody wants to help, you are invited !

The gathering starts 17th july and ends 17th august, and after that, there are two more weeks for cleaning and reviving the place.

The site is near Smolian. It is a city in the Western Rhodopes Mountains and you get there very easily: from Sofia, you take the highway to Plovdiv (the next big city after Sofia) and there you see the signs-Pamporovo, Smolian, Asenovgrad; when you see this road, you take it, and Smolian is 90 km. from Plovdiv. When you arrive there, you'd better watch for some signs or check your e-mail  for the specific position.

It is decided that this year the place may not be posted in the Internet and only be sent by  e-mails to the people figuring in the address book, so keep yourselves informed. Soon, we will send you maps and all.

You can come to Bulgaria from Serbia, Romania, Greece, Turkey, or Macedonia.

If you come from Serbia, Macedonia, Greece or Romania, you have to go to Sofia and continue from there, following the instructions above.

If you come from Turkey, you have to go to Plovdiv and from there to continue following the instructions above.

Only russians, turks and bosnians need visas to come to Bulgaria, all others need only their passports.

The people from Israel must register in the police , but it is a formality and they will tell you all about it at the border.

Cars must have green cards, or something like that to pass the border, but if you travel you should know this.

Well,  I can't remember what else I had to write , so if there is something else I will write again...

If you have any questions, ask, but sometimes we are a little bit slow with the
answers ! 

So, Peace and get ready ! 

Sorry to everyone who already recieved this message!

P.S. If you come by plane, you'd better land in Plovdiv.

There is also train from Sofia to Plovdiv. After that, there is no train, only buses. The train is about 3 €. From Plovdiv, there is a bus on every hour to Smolian, and it won't be much more expensive than the train.

There are also buses from Sofia to Smolian at 9, 13, 16h, and maybe more.

Hitch-hiking is also a very good way to travel in Bulgaria, even if you come from abroad !          So, you decide!
