Toshi is leaving
Our friend and colleague Toshihiko Izawa of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) leaves us this week after 2 years in Srebarna working alongside the local representative of the Bulgarian Academy of Science, Kolyo Mihof. We had a great party at the Resedentcia in the nearby village of Vetren on the Danube to mark this event. Here's some pics of the proceedings.

The JICA chief is proudly displaying the certificate we gave Toshi and his organisation naming our waste collection project in honour of him.
Great food laid on for all. Traditional Bulgarian fare and drink to acccompany it all of course.
Toshi and friends danced until they were dizzy. Lots of dressing up in national costumes and live music too.
International cooperation in action.
