Dancing in Sync
I wanted to get to Limassol this year but was delayed in hospital with my son hmmm, nothing broken, so Ammochostos was the only one I’d make in time … OMG ! This is getting bigger every year … and this year no different, as it seemed to go on for ever … everyone dancing in Sync and having a party !!!
The basic idea of course is that this is the last day you can eat meat, for 49 days of lent until Easter, so the word Carnivore quite significant, and hence the celebration of Carnival started, in Cyprus it’s any excuse to light a barbecue, as if we need one! hahahahaha!
Crazy as it sounds, towards the end I made it down to the square for the first time ever and hey, this lot were partying! … Outside Senso Cafe The Carnival Queen was dancing in stilettos, right til the end and omg I’ve never seen so much confetti lol … I really must make it to one of the other cities next year, but the way this lot are going it’ll be sad to miss this one !
Hundreds of kids
Gotta give a big shout out to all the participating dance schools and local companies, putting on a spectacular show for us again … Especially the kids tagging along at the end to make sure everyone kept dancing from Performers Academy of Dance and Theatre Arts, from Ayia Napa who looked awesome all in in white and of course Elena Tofa’s Passion Dance School … how many Avatars did you count ???
Thostou, Thostou, Carnival Ammochostou!
