This is the sort of thing we will eventually see on the roundabouts etc. The basket in Polemi is either freshly made or it has had a fresh lick of paint. It look very nice anyway.

If previous years are anything to go by, the roundabouts are going to get a makeover. If you want to see what they looked like last year, check out the blogs below....

At first glance, I took it as a typical shrine you see fairly frequently in Cyprus. However, a second glance revealed it to be rather unusual.
