It’s been a busy couple of days here. Over the weekend we headed to a ‘real’ Cypriot town where we were the only tourists – I stuck out like a sore thumb with my Nikon hanging round my neck. It was market day in Güzleyurt so off we went to stock up on some fabulous fruit and veggies.
We also made sure we beat the heat with a glass of strong çay.
This is a New Look dress that I bought on my trip back to Bury back in February. This is a similar one in navy and now just 7 GBP in the sale! I love it – but Hugh asked me if I had a baby in my tummy – so maybe not the most flattering on me. Comfort wins every time here though in the heat!
Today was an amazing day. When my Husband lived here from 1971 to 1974 they lived in Famagusta. The city is now home to a ‘buffer’ zone where only derelict, war torn buildings remain, patrolled by the Turkish army and the UN. It’s sad to see this part of the city crumbling away, but they obviously think a buffer zone is still needed to separate the North and the South. We drove around the barriers trying to pick out my Husband’s old apartment, where he lived as a child, that sits in the middle of the buffer zone.
Earlier in the day we visited what is probably my Husband’s most favorite spot in the World – Salamis. Imagine having ancient Greek ruins by the beach as your play ground when you were 7! He told me he had his 6th birthday party there and even wore a red toga for it – a lot of things are becoming clearer to me on this vacation:) I’ll be asking my FIL for the photos.
The Med is crystal clear here – almost too clear for me as I could see what I was swimming with – lots of tiny fish!
The obligatory photo on the headless statue.
Another fantastic lunch.
The neon beach cover up is from Target. I can’t tell you how hot I was standing here!
Who knows where tomorrow will take us!
