"A curious scene on the Macedonian frontier: Bulgarian troops dancing the "horo" round a camp fire"

"The peasants, who form nine-tenths of the Bulgarian Army, are very musical, and delight in a dance called the "horo". The men form in line, grasp each other's belts, and then dance around in a circle, two steps to the left, eight to the right, singing all the time."
