Planeia

The Troodos mountains are quite high, lying to the south of Nicosia in Limassoul district.
They are popular for holiday homes and many people visit the forest at Planeia where there are picnic places. Over Easter many people use the barbecue facilities. A fire engine and fire-fighting force were on duty in case of any outbreaks as the vegetation is already dry at this time of year.

mouflon

Inside the reserve is an enclosure where a small herd of mouflon are protected. The mouflon is endemic to Cyprus. It is a large goat-like animal . The male has large horns.

From the Troodos mountains there is a great view down towards the sea.
Above the reserve at Planeia is the Forestry School.

    Wish we had moussaka in our restaurants. The custom of decorating Easter eggs reminds me of Poland.

    what a fascinating custom. I'm sure if I won, my egg would never last for years!
