As you probably already know, the Agro-Know Christmas party took place on the 19th of December, but at Agro-Know we never skip a chance to celebrate and have fun with our colleagues and friends.
As we also did last year, on the Christmas Eve we had a special – unofficial – party for all of us who where left behind, working, “holding down the fort”. Only a few of us where here and at lunch time we all gathered in the kitchen to celebrate and eat the most common greek fast food, souvlaki. Of course, there is no party without alcohol so wine (produced by Thodoris family) was also available.
This year we also had a special guest to our little party. Agro-Know offices are always open for a visit from colleagues and as it happened, Jesús Herrera de la Cruz from CIMMYT was in Athens and visited for a small chat. Jesús (who also speaks greek!) works in the Information and Knowledge Management Department of CIMMYT under Richard Fulss who sent us some small (but precious for every coffee addict) gifts. We all enjoyed his company and hopefully we will have the chance to have both him and Richard over the offices again soon enough.
Now that the Christmas vacation period is coming to an end, it is time to get back to work, as the next period will be a time full of news from Agro-Know, so stay in touch!
Happy New Year everyone!
