Great news this week that this BLOG has been awarded a prize by the good people at,
A fantastic web forum for those interested in property in Bulgaria. It has thousands of members, many of whom are resident in BG, sharing information and tales of life here. Invaluable to anyone considering moving to Bulgaria, buying a holiday home or just visiting. We won joint first prize for most interesting BLOG. The other winners are known on the site as 'Dannia' with whom we shared first prize and 'Lubna' and 'Thursty' who were awarded prizes for the funniest stories published. We will use the money to fund our waste collection days here at the Reserve. It will help cover the costs of transport, refreshments, bags, gloves etc. So our heartfelt thanks go to Chris and all at MyBulgaria. Long live MYBG!
We also found out this week that the Japan International Cooperation Agency have agreed to retrospectively fund one of our previous 'Waste Away' days and their representative here in Srebarna, Toshihiko Izawa, delivered the funds yesterday. Massive thanks also go to Toshi and all the team at J.I.C.A.
Here's a pic of Toshi with Kolyo Mihof of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and myself.
