Water Problems and a Blue Moon


We have had major problems in the village with our water supply due a burst water main and then a power break at the pumping station, some residents went without water for five days.








The weather forecast indicates that we are in for a heat wave at the begining of the week with temps possibly reaching the high 30's.






On a brighter note, we  had a beautiful sight of the "Blue Moon" rising over Pissouri.

Baby Alfie arrives and a new Cypriot Driving Licence

Last year we were privileged to be invited to Lisa and Shane's wedding, well this week the happy couple announced the arrival of their baby son, Alfie.
Alfie was born in Limassol and weighed in at 6 pounds- 8 ounces.


















At the beginning of this Month, Cyprus came into line with the majority of  other European countries when Transport minister Marios Demetriades  announced we would be introducing the laminated, credit card sized driving licence into the country. Previously we had a cardboard licence with the photo stapled to it and Rob's cardboard licence was falling apart.
