Stoyu Stoev About Baba Vanga
Stoyu Stoev – a philosopher, is a close friend of Stoil Bozhilov who was a former mayor of Petrich. In the 70-ties they often go and visit Baba Vanga.
I remember Baba Vanga loved to cook. She was always using a wooden spoon (a very old and amortized one) when stirring the meals. She was moving around her room very fast and freely, despite her blindness. She was accurately picking her spices from the kitchen cupboards, and then was putting them back where she took them from.
Our conversations sometimes would have a quarrelsome or rather humorous context – once I remember she said: “ So how many people you brought me today that were not booked for an appointment and had to go infront of others that did have one? If you have your close friends and lovers – you read on them, why you send them to me?”
Other times she would complain about her old age, her tiredness, her heavy burden that she has to carry, her destiny that left her without a husband at an early age, and so on.
