August 2020

0
August of course is normally peak season, so expect it to get a bit busier on the coast, partly because pretty much the whole of Cyprus’ commerce and industry shuts down for about 3 weeks in August, it’s not worth trying to work coz if it gets to over 40°C in the workplace, the unions pull out the staff, and it’s definitely gonna be over 40°C, so they might as well close down for three weeks, but of course, it's a nightmare coz you can’t get anything done lol … no probs, as we say in Cyprus 'Avrion' it’s the Cypriots favourite word, but I'm sure you'll witness an occasional pull your hair out moment lol ...

July 2020

… so, its peak season, and it’s hot, hot, hot, with the temperature well over 40°C by mid-July, and even the cold water isn’t cold enough!  Sunrise is about 5.30 am and it’s not getting dark ’til almost 8.30 pm, and as we move swoftly out of lockdown there’s beach bars throwing beach parties, coz the clubs aren’t open yet.  I’m missing the foam parties and pool parties but I’ve heard the night clubs are targeting to open by 16th with some massive names coming to spin their mix …

Casa Mespilea Bistro & Guest House, Old Town, Paphos

... we have created a menu, traditional but not, it’s totally unique, partly influenced by her yiayia, a fusion of Greek, Cypriot and Spanish cuisine, but she assured me none of the dishes you’ll find anywhere else, because they are the creation of their imagination, using always fresh produce, everything is cooked to order, nothing is prepared and always around her flavours and essences of Cyprus, that she uses to compliment every dish … oh, and if she had her way, she would change the menu every day” … So do look out for their daily specials and make sure you leave room for dessert!

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 !

The current Covid Crises has hit us all hard, throwing us into a sci-fi film set back in March, we’re now on 'Take 82', and tbh, I think the Cyprus Government got it right … They reacted very quickly, rumour has it from a little inside tip from one of our Chinese investors … They attacked the pandemic with the only possible solution, ‘To Slow it Down’ … then using experts in Epidemiology they mathematically calculated when things would get back to normal’ish … and we’ve lifted restrictions in travel, no more SMS messages to go out, no more curfew, we’re allowed to swim in the sea and top up the tan after, and the restaurants and bars are opening and it seems people are getting together with friends, so please pop out and give these guys some support, they need it most now!!!
