Couldn't agree more. I am invariably embarrassed by the amount of fruit and vegetables our shop landlord gives us each month when we meet to pay him. Often there's a whole carrier bag full of bananas from his plantation; he knows our grandkids love them. Also gives us rodia (pomegranites), water melon, aubergines and other assorted vegetables in season. This time it''ll be nice to give them a load of passion fruit which I know they enjoy, but don't grow themselves. By and large, Cypriots are extremely generous and hospitable people.

Yes, my fridge is once again making fruit juice every time I close the door! 😂😂
And the amount of actual help as well as offers, not just immediately following Dave's death, but even now 20 months later ...
It is very heartwarming, but still a little embarrassing that one simply cannot outgift a Cypriot - or even come anywhere near equal!

''The Kindness of Cypriots'' - just about sums up why I live here.

Indeed galexinda. And as I point out to people who have just arrived from other countries to make their new home in Cyprus, it's a VERY safe place to live and to bring up a family.

I point out to them that there are countless nationalities who live in Cyprus: Greek Cypriots, Brits, Russians, Israelis, east Europeans, people from all EU countries and many others I've overlooked...and the wonderful thing is that everyone gets on in complete harmony.

It's safe to walk the streets here, even at night and in the centre of town. That counts for a lot.
