Past & present in Cyprus
I am returning to Cyprus for a holiday in about 10 days, having lived in Limassol 1976 - 79 and holidayed a couple of times in the '90's. The country had certainly changed between 1979 and the mid- 90's so I am expecting lots more changes on this visit. It's always been my favourite country and I have been lucky enough to travel to a few!
One thing I remember is a deserted monastery in Troodos hills, where there was a huge barbeque pit with long (4 metre!) skewers driven by water diverted from a stream up the hill. There used to be some good parties held here over the years but I cannot recall where it is. If anyone else remembers this and can point me in the right direction I would be grateful, just to revisit for old times sake and to see if it is still there! It was still there in 1996 anyway, so here's hoping.
