Cyprus is in lockdown, for its own good. We are allowed to leave the house for exercise, so a brisk walk around the block was in order. And fortunately, we have a very scenic block...
Half Way Through Week #1
This view is similar to what you will see on the Polemi webcam picture. It shows the vineyard in the field opposite our villa. Beyond that you can make out the distant hills of Paphos Forest. Before we left, of course, we made sure we were carrying our passports and the citizens forms.
Turning left we have more vineyards. I love the patterns they make. You can't see it here, but the area to the left of the shot is still a bit flooded. It is much better than it has been in recent years though, because they installed new drainage pipes in the area, so most of the water gets carried off to the lowlands.
Our daughter spotted this. She assumed that some kids had erected a tree house. I am not so sure though. Perhaps some hunters fancied getting a bit of a height advantage. If it was kids, fair play and good effort. The camp has survived the recent storms.
Tiptoe Through The Tulips
They say every cloud has a silver lining. The lockdown meant that the tulip festival - due to happen tomorrow - had to be cancelled. The silver lining is that as of yesterday, they haven't yet come into flower as much as they will eventually do.
Not Quite In Full Bloom
I think in another week or so, they will be at their best. Do not see that as an excuse to come and see them though, unless you live in close proximity. I imagine the police will take a very dim view of people congregating here. We just happen to live within a stone's throw of the field.
