Re: Peyia police investigating burglary of holiday villa

Suggest Manxie you look into a pre paid card like Revolut... excellent exchange rates + you can get limited cash out.....
Carrying vast amounts of cash is asking for trouble...

Re: Referral Letter by doctor

Agree with Trev....
My wife had a stroke earlier in the year...we have private health care, but no private hospital could deal with it.
She spent three weeks in Nicosia General, a team were flown in from Athens to do the required procedure. Nothing but praise for the General Hospital...

Re: Resturant Rip offs

Once went to harbour with my son for a couple of beers, paid with a €50 note, got change for a twenty note...
Complained, got the shrug of the shoulders , then I recited the last three digits of the €50 euro note, I have a habit of doing this...
Reluctantly got the correct change, never been back....
