This is the oldest bar in Paphos, sitting proudly on the corner of the entrance to old town ... it's a small, cozy, happy bar, minimalistic in design, but it's leading the way in the new trend of barring ...
one of the most popular customs and arguably the most fun is a joyful procession to the sea, where people sprinkle and often throw water over each other, symbolising the purification of the body as well as the soul ... Hmm, I’m taking a bucket with me !
This really is a lovely initiative by local, ex pat and international artists and crafters from all over the world and a lovely way to spend a family day out doing a little shopping and bartering and I really hope you'll go along to give them some support !
It was the welcome meeting of Cyprus Rocks 2017 ... Aeyialos Beach Bar and Restaurant were our hosts, btw one of the best fish...
To some it must have seemed a crazy idea to invite renowned jazz artists from England to a border area of Cyprus and so far up the West Coast, the Paradise Jazz Festival took off immediately and was loved by the audience from the very beginning, first by the British ex pats of the area, and then then by the musicians from Cyprus, Netherlands, Bulgaria, Greece, Israel, oh and then by all island's nationalities, giving it a truly international image!
Still one of the oldest, most classic and much loved pubs in Larnaca after over 25 years ... it's Cypriot Rock hospitality all the way. With music ranging from Classic Rock, and Jazz to Rhythm and Blues and even a little reggae ...
... Based up on the West Coast, they do play rock but the music mix is much more versatile, everything from Charts, Top 40 and latest releases to Retro and of course all the Classics. Its 24/7 with top presenters live on weekdays between 7 am and 11 pm, when it switches to non stop music. Oh, and you don't have to be on the West Coast to listen, I often listen on line and I live on the east coast, it's a really cool station!
I met Nick and Bill back in 1994 when they first opened down on Dhekelia Road near the bases .. Times were different then in Cyprus, the gay movement a little taboo ... Moving to the airport road in 2005, by now it was more of a Freedom Club than a Gay Club, which means anyone and everyone can go, as long as you're a little open minded, and they do, so much so this is one big anything goes party every weekend !
... a gala procession of amazing flower decked floats and beautifully dressed people.
Angela mostly works on glass but she can jazz almost anything up. She also loves making hand painted cards, naturally unique every time. One of her faves, bottles, not just with glitter, which btw is biodegradable . Glass Painting aka Stained Glass . Faux Glass aka Liquid Leading . also the ancient Chinese art of Decoupage, using rice paper, the results are stunning !
