Easter Orthodox Style

The word Pascha means Passover in Greek, the eternal Passover from death to life and from earth to heaven, and begins with a 40-day fasting, ending within the Holy Week during which a complete fasting diet is followed.  No meats, dairy, fish, poultry or dishes that are prepared with these foods can be eaten.  Many restaurants around the island also adapt their menus for the convenience of customers who may wish to follow a fasting diet.

They Jazzed it all up in Paradise

... the stage was ready, shady areas covered in tarpaulin and blossom and seats set in rows for a change making the play area busier ... a few sound checks, early birds arriving for the best seats and as it got darker, Socrates clicked the lights on, then the sound of sax warmed our souls, there was a good number in the crowd, much as it's more of a family reunion, returning for the annual event, many times, everyone as always loving the vibe!

A Christmas Storing ?

Christmas is as good an excuse as any to stock up on a few bottles of wine to accompany all that festive fayre.  Perhaps, if you are really lucky a loved one may even treat you to a bottle or case of your favourite tipple as a Christmas gift.  So, how do you go about storing it?

Parko Paliatso Luna Park, Ayia Napa

I love this place, the sounds of gears and links chinking, smothered by fair ground music, the smell of candy floss and bbq corn on the cob, the multi coloured lights and occasional girly screams. It's really cool idea coz you just buy a Wrist Band depending on your ages and what you want to do!
