Tsada to Choulou

This is a video from Tsada to Choulou from our dash cam.
It starts when you turn of the B7 at Tsada and ends in the village centre of Choulou.
There is no sound as the radio was off and I was on my own in the car!

Re: Huge Explosion In Beirut

Just think how much more damage would have been done if that grain silo had not been there.
It stopped a lot of the blast wave going in one direction and made it go up into the air.

Re: Cyta ... hmm

In 2011 there was a bad thunder storm and we lost our internet due to a ground strike of lightning, the cyta router would not connect.

So I changed from it to my netgear one and we got our connection back.

I do not know if you can do this now but I may try it one day to see!!

One day at a training session the manager asked if a staff member could loan the office a printer as they needed one. First: - a multimillion pound company that canno...

Re: bouncing a cheque in Cyprus.

Devil
Allot of Cyprus laws are based on UK law, remember this was a UK colony up till 1964.

I should know this as I have been dealing with the police as a witness in a case for the prosecution.

Criminal code CAP154 is the main one.
