|This is what they call a beach in Cyprus|
An interesting feature about Cyprus is that there are no street signs. We saw street signs only once – in a tiny little village. But in places like Limassol and Polis and Paphos and every other place we went there is nothing. Zip! Cate asked one of her colleagues – who lives in Cyprus – why this was so and he replied that they did not need street signs because they knew where the streets were.
I am surprised the bother naming the towns.
But we had our navigation system – which while being almost completely useless – did enable us to find our way around and prevented us from getting hopelessly lost.
But much guesswork was required because it did not have in it any of the villages or streets we wanted to find – not one.
We stayed at the Anassa resort in Polis and were out of our depth again. It was a resort for rich people – who as it turned out – were mainly fat Russians. Well – the men were fat and the women were very thin.
Cyprus has been invaded by the Russians and there are even local magazines devoted to the Russian population.
It is a quite beautiful country and has lots of ancient ruins. We explored the Mosaics at Paphos - which are quite spectacular.
It was also very hot so we could not do too much – but we had a nice little holiday before Cate started work again.
