New God-Parents and The Lodge

This weekend we skyped Lee and Sarah and we were thrilled to be asked to be Cari's God-parents at her forthcoming Christening.

As we talked to her parents, Lee slowly lifted up Cari so that we could read what was written on her shirt. We now have another trip to the UK planned.

On Sunday we joined some of the locals of Pissouri for a bus trip into Paphos, our destination was "The Lodge", an African themed restaurant. A great afternoon was had by all and we were entertained by the Rock Band "Black cab"

Panorama Lounge and The Bunch of Grapes

A new cafe, The Pamorama Lounge, has opened in Pissouri. It is situated at the entrance of the village with stunning views of the surrounding country side.

On Saturday evening we popped down to the village to visit one of our favourite restaurants, The Bunch of Grapes. As usual, the food and the service were top class.

Torrential Rain in Cyprus......In August !

We woke up on Sunday Morning to dark rain clouds rolling in from the West, at about 10.30 the heavens opened up and we were hit by torrential ran for about an hour. This is the first time that we have ever had rain in August in the eleven years we have lived here.

We were due to visit the beach football tournament down in Pissouri Bay, but when we arrived at the rain was so heavy that we could not leave the car.
The event did began once the storm had passed.

A "Rock" concert and Mid Life Crisis

Whilst driving past Aphrodite's rock this week we were surprised to see heavy machinery on the beach, it turns out that they were building a performing stage and a 1000 seater Grandstand for two concerts to be held this weekend.

On Friday evening we popped down to the Pissouri Bay cafe for a bite to eat and then went to the Grape and Grain to see the band, Mid Life Crisis.  This coincided with a wedding party at the G&G.
