I am glad you got it sorted Lincoln. But I thought you lived in Chloraka :-)
That is where we used to live , but decided the quieter country air in Polis suited us better so we moved here Nov 1st.

Re: Who will do it?

The beauty is that they record if you are using a mobile while driving or if wearing a seatbelt or not. Great news.

Free test kit

I called into my local Pharmacy today and got the pack of five RAT kits. Just had to show my safe pass and yellow slip. Free pack given. Instructions inside are in both English and Cypriot. I decided to try it out. Follow instructions. It was easy and quick. Negative result.

Re: Paphos Medieval Tower

They have done an awful lot of repair work to this tower. When we first discovered it -several years ago it was about a third of what it is now and you could walk into it. Looking far better now and U=I see they have support structure. Thanks for the picture Dominic.

A Christmas story.

It was early evening Boxing Day - One year ago… Settling on a branch of a weather blown tree a Tawny Owl gazed from a sky heavily grey with the certainty of heavy snowfall to the distant twinkling lights of a small Welsh village nestled in a valley far below. Comprising of rows of terraced houses, t...

Re: Rain and More Rain

I got ready and went for my walk, on the way back, about 500 meters from our house - The heavens opened up again a huge downpor. I ran as quick as these old legs would carry me back home. Ah well at least I had on my waterproof jacket.

Re: Increased Restrictions

Those who have had COVID and recovered have the certificate and from the 31st Jan it will be valid for only 90 days. They will then have to get PCR certificates. That is my understanding of it.
