Re: Move to ban boats, fishing in parts of Akamas

Question though; have there been accidents between boats, Jet Skis and swimmers? We read reports of accidents & deaths from main resorts every year, but I can't recall any reports about Latchi in my 11 years here! Are there any lifeguards there? The Ministry though does appear to be very heavy hand...

Re: Ayia Napa Sculpture Park - 2020

I was interested to find out a bit more about the park and the artists, but could find very little on-line. This has a summary https://www.loveayianapa.com/ayia-napa- ... -park.html

Re: post from UK,

I've just received a letter from London dated 02 June. I'm advised that I now have a Registered something from the UK. Tracking shows this was posted 09 June and arrived Customs in Larnaka 27 June. Advice from Pafos PO is that I can collect from somewhere in Kissonerga between 17:00 & 19:00 (possibl...

Re: Complacency setting in.

Last Weds I went to the Lab in Chlorakas where one would expect thorough compliance; sadly not. I had to request the Phlebotomist to put on a mask. On Saturday I was in ToK LIDL, where tanoy announcements repeated the need for 2 metre distancing. Much as I might try, it was the staff who kept coming...

Previous Mayors/Community leaders in Paphos & in Kissonega, and I'm sure others whose names I don't recall, have fallen foul of the law. I'm guessing that these local authorities must hav...
