SO I WAS PEDALING along on my bicycle, towing a little kiddie trailer that contained my daughter, Sophie, and her friend Sofia. I like to tow Sophie when she has a friend with her, because they quickly forget that I'm up there pedaling, so I can listen in on their conversations and find out what is on the minds of 4-year-old children. Usually it's something like this: First Child: You're a tree head! (Wild giggling) Second Child: No, you're a tree head! (Wild giggling) First Child: You're a pinecone head!

SOFIA, Bulgaria -- In the hospitals, doctors have stopped performing all but emergency surgery because they don't have anesthesia or the money to buy it." 'Urgency' becomes a very relative term," says Dr. Slavyan Nikolov, a surgeon whose salary at First City Hospital is $10 a month. "There is no medicine. People without money have no options."The same diagnosis applies to all of Bulgaria, where a critical economic situation and political unrest have almost paralyzed the country. There is hyper-inflation, which means that Bulgarians without hard currency can barely afford to eat. The banking system has collapsed.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands - On his farewell trip through Europe this week, U.S. Secretary of State Colin L. Powell delivered a consistent message in the Old World's corridors of power: America wants to move beyond the damaging rift over Iraq and reach out to begin a new era of cooperation. At successive meetings in Sofia, Bulgaria, Brussels, Belgium and The Hague during which he saw most of the continent's foreign ministers, Powell spoke about America's desire for reconciliation. For the most part, Europe's diplomats listened politely, smiled - and offered little.

John Sofia looked glum yesterday as he stared at the cavernous, empty Annapolis warehouse where mock-ups of submarines and warships once filled a bustling laboratory.Here in Building 100, Sofia was one of the scientists designing the kinds of imaginative technology that became the grist for Tom Clancy's Cold War thrillers.They designed wiring systems that would allow a Navy destroyer to take a direct missile hit and still have electrical power.They helped engineer amphibious ships that could skim the water on cushions of air to land troops on a beachhead.

For some, the sight of a faceless garage or a squat chain store or a long stretch of tract housing barely registers; there's just nothing unusual about such things. For artist Sofia Silva, they mean a lot. And, once framed by her camera lens, they are imbued with provocative power. Nearly a dozen of Silva's photographs form an exhibit, "Meditations on the Landscape of Desire," one of two solo shows on display at C. Grimaldis Gallery (the other show features intriguing sculptural pieces by Lu Zhang)

VELIKO TURNOVO, Bulgaria - Up and down the twisting, cobblestone streets of this charming ancient city, hundreds of photocopied leaflets with grainy black-and-white images of the dead are tacked onto trees, utility poles and the sides of buildings. Most of these people are long dead. Some passed on more than a dozen years ago, yet relatives in this so-called "city of the czars" and other towns across Bulgaria keep the crinkled, yellowing death notices on public display, as if to remind friends and neighbors not to forget the people.

When Juan Tassano moved his wife, Adriana, and children, Sofia and Mauricio, from Uruguay to the United States, he thought he was prepared for anything. He grew up in Uruguay, and his wife grew up in Argentina. With their upbringings - his in a small town and hers in the city - he believed the two of them had all the bases covered to tackle the U.S. "Being a father in Uruguay is no different than being a father in the United States, but it includes different things in this country," said Tassano, 47. "And no matter where you live, the best way to understand a father is through his children."
