THERE ARE MANY LOCAL CUSTOMS, BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE
TO REMEMBER IS THAT BULGARIANS NOD THEIR HEAD TO INDICATE
'NO' AND SHAKE IT WHEN THEY MEAN 'YES'.
NORMAL COURTESIES SHOULD BE OBSERVED AND HANDSHAKING IS
THE NORMAL FORM OF GREETING. DRESS SHOULD BE CONSERVATIVE
BUT CASUAL. ENGLISH IS SELDOM SPOKEN & GERMAN & FRENCH
SPEAKING PEOPLE SHOULD AVOID THE NEED FOR A BALKAN
INTERPRETER. ALCOHOL IS READILY AVAILABLE, AND SMOKING
IS NOT PROHIBITED IN PUBLIC AREAS.

BUSINESS HINTS
--------------
BUSINESS TENDS TO BE CONDUCTED IN A FORMAL MANNER.

ARE ADVISED TO DRESS SMARTLY. APPOINTMENTS SHOULD BE
MADE WELL IN ADVANCE. VISITING CARDS ARE OFTEN EXCHANGED.
