Happy Seychelles and Africa Day
Mon, 01 July 2019
The spirit of magical Africa came to Sofia this weekend with an amazing triple celebration – Seychelles independence day, 15 years of the establishment of the consulate of Seychelles in Bulgaria and Africa day 2019.
Africa Day is an annual celebration. The embassies of the African countries represented in Bulgaria took part in the festival manifesting their culture. Freshly cooked delicacies, traditional drinks, native dances and historical artifacts were exhibited to the guests to spread the African spirit.
Since its establishment 15 years ago, the Honorary Consulate General of the Republic of Seychelles in Bulgaria has been a regular participant in the celebration with the most colorful and exotic stall that always stands out among the others. This year, the consulate took it to another level, creating a huge photo wall that takes you directly on the beach of Seychelles. Furthermore, by taking a picture, the guests of the celebration had the chance to participate in an exclusive Facebook game on the consulate’s page and win a brand new Honor smartphone.
The consulate supported a good cause as well. By creating a workshop for traditional Seychelles bracelets, the team collected money for elderly people in need. Many colorful stickers with funny quotes were also sold. The island mood was guaranteed by typical Seychelles music, flower necklaces and of course the unique Coco de Mer, that grows only in Seychelles. The Honorary Consul General, Mr. Maxim Behar, was there throughout the whole day, with his incomparable smile, celebrating and taking pictures with all of the guests.
