Standing proud at the top of Hero's Square, right in the heart of Limassol, a place where people gather, in days of old a mix of Greek and Turkish Cypriots, apparently once a red light district, now a mix of popular stylish bar's and eateries, and as the decline of cinema in the 80's inspired the new Rialto Theatre, that launched in 1999 and helped to develop the area into a hive of activities, cultural or not!
I met up with the owner Nicos Pyrgos for a chat, and it soon became obvious that this guy has exceptional knowledge about fireworks ... after all, his father Marios launched the company back in 1986, laughing, Nicos said, "I've got gunpowder in my veins"! ... ha! my type of guy!

I’ve often watched Jenny completely change people in a few minutes … it is quite amazing what a good quality hairpiece can do to make you look like someone new or maybe you just want to surprise someone, either way, a visit here will suffice … oh, and btw Jenny has a few selected summer clothing designs and sandals and not many people know this; she contributes considerable amounts of her profits to Children in Need in African ... she's an amazing woman !!!
It's a lovely idea for a truly different day out. What I really like about The Camel Park is it’s diversity, as there’s always something new to see every time you go. With such a lot of animals, there’s often a few babies around including iccle Camels, ranging from as little as 2 weeks old … they are just delightful! You can choose to stroll around at your leisure or there’s guides who offer information in several languages.
You just know it's Christmas when they switch the lights on in your home town ... big thanks to my able assistant Angela Savva for these lovely photos at old town Paphos ... Videos will follow soon ...
Franco goes to Milan in Italy twice a year, to the MICAM Fair, the biggest and most important Shoe Fair in Europe and orders new lines for the seasons, just before launching either his Spring & Summer Fashions or their Autumn & Winter Collections ... his carefully made selections are mostly Spanish, made from top quality leather, with his favourite designers names including; Garvalin, Agatha, Ruz de la Prada, and Plakton.
This is, without doubt, one of Paphos' finest eateries ... It's a traditional Irish Bar, so authentic all the furniture was crafted in Ireland an imported over, lots of dark warm wood, benches and stools, cottage cabinets and red brick. There's plenty of room inside, a nice covered smoking room and a lovely breezy sun terrace out front with comfortable seating, it's just like you've walked into a bar in Dublin !!!
Fat Mama’s is one of those special places that’s so good you’ll just keep going back, so naturally after 25 years it gets really busy every night with bookings not accepted after 7 pm, but don’t worry, if you have to wait to be seated you can enjoy a drink from a well-stocked bar. Mixing one of my favourite Mojitos or try one of their intoxicating cocktails, and at 2 for the price of 1 during happy hours!
