site.btaDay 52: RSV 421 Returns to Livingston Island
The Bulgarian naval research vessel Sv. Sv. Kiril i Metodii (RSV 421), providing support for the 31st Bulgarian Antarctic Expedition, returned to Livingston Island at 9:30 pm local time. A second group of Spanish polar researchers from the Juan Carlos I base boarded the ship, as well as the Bulgarian journalists staying at the Bulgarian Antarctic base since February 14.
Within hours, the ship will leave for the neighbouring King George Island, where the passengers will disembark and later head to their homes in Europe.
Earlier, RSV 421 made a trip to Deception Island, where resources for the Gabriel de Castilla Spanish Antarctic Station were unloaded. The ship also transported members of the Spanish expedition who boarded RSV 421 in Cartagena, Spain.
BTA's Daily News editor Konstantin Karagyozov is the only member of the media who is travelling on board the ship to Livingston Island and back and covering the Bulgarian expedition throughout its stay in Antarctica.
