Re: €85m cost for emissions to be passed on to consumers

You would think, with windy/cloudy/rainy Britain leading the way with outside investment on wind power instead of burning coal/fossil fuel sunny Cyprus who receives an average of 2,700 to 3,500 hours per year would be champing at the bit to get outside investment and investing in technology for sola...

Re: Police in plea to road users to ‘change mentality’ after 6 fatalities in 10 days

I think the Police are hypocritical https://in-cyprus.com/larnaca-man-booked-for-driving-five-times-over-the-limit/ A 42 year old man was caught driving five times over the limit in Larnaca on Monday night. Police stopped the man’s car on the Larnaca-Dhekelia road at around 11 pm because he was driv...

Re: New screen for I-phone

I can wholeheartedly confirm a wonderful friendly service @ NUFA Ltd near the Mall over the years for both an iPhone and an iPad screen replacement. Reasonably priced and both done in 48 hours They also sor...

Re: Full traffic-cam system by 2022, mobile units online next year, minister says

Are they starting with putting them up near the new Marina @ Kissonegra to start with?

Wonder if this will be another fiasco like the last ones and they buy a system designed just for driving on the left and won't work the other way around?

Cynical and Cyprus do have a connected beginning

Liner @ Paphos Harbour

I spotted ( well could hardly miss it ) this Liner near the harbour and a small boat went out to meet it

Just wondering if a medical emergency or we will be having visitors

How on earth do passengers get ashore from cruise ships? Ferried by smaller boats ??

Re: gated communities in Paphos

The first link on the OP post will not open. It just goes to "Oops! That page can’t be found"

The only gated community I can think off in Paphos itself rather than those on the periphery is Queen''s Gardens next to the Mall on the TOTK road

Re: Paphos in the 60s.

Cyprus didn't pop up on my radar until the early 90's so I feel like the new kid on the block based on earlier comments

Hard to believe what Kennedy Square looked like especially
