The “Old Firm “ Scottish football match took place just after Christmas and we went down the Pissouriana took watch game. The usual good natured banter went on between the opposing supporters during the game in which Celtic ran out winners 1-0
Tracy took great pleasure in“winding up” Dave.
Being as mad as “A box of frogs”,Sue and Damion began Christmas day by plunging into the icy cold swimming pool, we then moved onto the Pissouriana for a few drinks and everyman and his dog seemed to be there.
A superb Christmas dinner was then served at Steve and Mary’s house. In the evening we played Charades and howled with laughter as Steve tried to convey the film “The French connection”
To celebrate Mary’s birthday we went up to the Village of Lofu, which sits in the foothills of the Troodos mountains just North of Limassol. So the Liberty street gang made up of Rob & Mandy, Steve & Mary, Damion & Sue sat down in the Lofu tavern for a superb lunch and the owner was kind enough to give Mary a lovely chocolate birthday cake.

We drove down to the happy valley base where there was an international rugby game taking place between Cyprus and Monaco.
The teams ended a dour first half scoreless with a string of injuries. The second half produced a much more open game with the Cypriot side running out winners by a score of 24 -3.

We drove up into the Troodos mountains for our first visit to Tsiakkas winery which is situated just outside the village of Pelendri We tasted a number of very good wins and ordered a couple of cases for the forthcoming Christmas holidays.
The surrounding area was devastated by a forest fire in the Summer and we noticed that some of the trees were scorched just 10 metres from the winery.
We then drove over to the village of Kato Amiandos to the Amiandos garden restaurant where they were holding a US Thanksgiving day dinner and we enjoyed a superb buffet.
In the evening we went along to a birthday celebration for Jason,Andy and Dave took the opportunity to dress as TV stars “Starsky and Hutch”
