Caritas - Emergency Accommodation Needed

I received this email from Wendy tonight. She is the lady who runs Caritas Paphos. I am reproducing it here verbatim, but first, this is the summary: A group of refugees are looking for an apartment, preferably 3 bedroom. Two of the men looking have work and will pay the rent. One of the women is ab...

Christ that lady is mad as a hatter.

Has she no knowledge of the British Empire and its record?

It is perhaps worth pointing out that wherever David Brown was when he was wrongfully stopped, it clearly wasn't in Paphos.

Playing the Race Card

A UK Green MEP was asked to leave the EU parliament on his first day, because he was mistaken for a tourist. He was wearing a T Shirt and a baseball cap. He was also black. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-48840428 ___________ He added: "I make people feel uncomfortable, people ...

Re: Do you know Cyprus? Villages (#21) difficult!

It wasn't the walk, so much as the height of the undergrowth you will have to walk through. Autumn / winter are the best time for a visit really.

Re: Wimbledon!

A tournament for the priviledged. Whilst in most sports in UK there are many coloured participants, why are there so few, if any, in UK Tennis? Oh! I've answered the question. Alan Possibly because there are so few UK tennis players? But here's one, who's playing in Wimbledon today. https://en.wiki...

Re: Do you know Cyprus? Villages (#21) difficult!

You can't drive direct to Prastio from the Extreme View cafe. You are better off following the signs to the monastery and then turning left once you have crossed the river. Then you have to follow tracks that take you a bit up the hill. You will eventually have to walk through a field to get there. ...

Re: Wall-to-wall sunshine, but...

We disabled our irrigation system soon after we moved here. We decided to concentrate on plants that can survive in natural Polemi conditions. Some of the weeds positively thrive. I did experiment with different grass types, as the typical Cypriot grass looks nice but isn't that nice to sit on. Howe...

Re: Old Pafos in 2019 - Part 1

Well the tourist board call it Old Town, and google maps call it Old Town, so that's what I call it. Given that the aim of the blogs is to get people to visit, and they may use a map to do so, it makes sense to use the same names.

Re: Do you know Cyprus? Villages (#21) difficult!

I blogged about the village Max is referring to some time ago. There's actually a picture of the green tarpaulin in it.

Old Pafos in 2019 - Part 1

It's a year since we had a proper look around Old Town, so we thought another blog was due. We won't be revisiting every place we visited in the previous blogs. Instead we will be focusing on new additions and places we missed last year. Even so, we took nearly 100 pictures for this blog, so we have...

Given that he is no longer on the forum it is unfair to refer to him in comments.
