Cyprus Night in Pissouri

We made our way down to Pissouri village square to attend our first "Cyprus Night" of the Summer.

The highlight of the evening was a young man named, Andreas, who showed off his superb skills on the Bouzuoki.

Of course, they always get some clown out of the Audience to make a fool of themselves and on this occasion they picked on "Yours Truly"

Cyprus and the Syrian crisis

Once again the Island of Cyprus hits the International News headlines, this time regarding the ongoing crisis in Syria. According to the Cyprus Mail.......

"Britain is sending six RAF Typhoon jets to Cyprus as a defensive measure amid growing tensions over Syria and talks of Western military intervention. Cyprus is a mere 100km from the Syrian coast and the city of Latakia, Assad’s hometown and recently re-captured by government forces.

With two sovereign bases in Cyprus, the UK is also taking steps to increase security and military forces on the island. While the Cypriot Foreign Minister, Ioannis Kasoulides has stated that he does not expect the UK sovereign bases to play a major part in a military strike, it seems naïve to think so."

Rising Temps, Curries and A Drag show.

As we come in to August, once again the temps in Cyprus begin to rise and the ever present threat of Scrub fires is only too real.

On Friday we went down to Pissouri Bay to visit the Saffron Indian restaurant and enjoyed a spicy meal.

On Saturday night we strolled down to the 1911 club in Pissouri to watch the Miss Debonair drag show. Ms Debonair entertained the crowd with numerous costume changes, comedy routines and some well known show tunes.

Even the bar staff joined in the fun with the appearance of two new barmaids, Roberta & Jiminia.
