I mean it's an island for gosh sakes

But, I am going to try my best to write some thoughts about living in Cyprus. I have taken lots of photos already. The change in seasons has been interesting. At the moment it is very green and lush, which is so different from how I have seen the island while I have been here since the beginning.

There is a lot of history in Cyprus. 8000 years of it. However, you have to know where to look. My first impressions were tacky and touristy with not much else to offer, but slowly my mind has changed. I still think the island is a little dull, and making friends here is very hard, but I have found more things to do and to see.

Give me another ten months and maybe I will even have enough helpful tips and inside information to make these pages interesting. In the meantime, I hope you get some use out of what I have written so far. But, for now these pages remain a project under construction, so keep checking back once in a while.

    I have used Demetris for 18 years, 2/3 time a year and have had great service and never a b/down, he's flexible on price, a very handy guy to know, he got a flat for me to buy 8 years ago. So if you need anything from a car to trips to Egypt talk to him

    Easy to say about the litter..but how do you change the bad habits of an egotistic society? Greece is the same. I have the same pet peeves!
