A couple days ago on the news there was a story about a vending machine that dispenses milk.  You bring your own receptacle,  put some money in, and milk comes out.  At the bottom of the screen it said “nyamesh krava, no piesh mlyako.”  Which means, “you don’t have a cow, but you drink milk.”  They interviewed a woman who was identified on the bottom of the screen as a “farmer.”  She was happy about the new vending machines, because they would make her product even more accessible to cow-less Bulgarians.

This was on the national evening news.

    Let us know if you find any vending machines with which you can barter or haggle.

  5. Update: it turns out that “нямаш крава, но пиеш мляко” is the Bulgarian equivalent to “Why buy the cow when you can have the milk for free?” Of course!
