Sunday Lunch in the Mountains

On a beautiful Sunday morning we took a drive upto the foothills of the Troodos. As we drove into the area we noticed the wonderful Autumnal colours of the trees.

Our first stop was the village of Trimiklini where we stopped of to check out the local market with its assortment of fruit and fresh honey followed by a Cypriot coffee break.

We then moved onto the "Green valley" waterfall, a foliage covered path takes you down to the waterfall which is set in a shaded area but not that high.

The village of Vouni was our next port of call and we spent a short time wandering through the narrow streets of this picturesque village.

It was now time for lunch so we headed down to the Takis taverna. We had a warm welcome and sat down for a lovely 14 dishes meze which included.
