Adela Hinkova at home

This is a photo of me with my mother's sewing machine, which is a Singer and was made in 1910. The photo was taken in the apartment I live in now, in 2003. To be honest, I don't like present-day capitalism. It's wrongly interpreted capitalism. Many economic problems aren't solved in Bulgaria. I don't accept the idea of having both very rich and very poor people. There are many such people now. Why should my daughter, whose job as an anesthetist is very hard, go and work at another place in order to pay her bills? Many Bulgarians hope that the situation will get better if we become a member of the European Union. Maybe that's the only right way. [Editor's note: Bulgaria became a member of the EU on 1st January 2007.]
