Greek Cyprus

What a contrast having just left Egypt.  Welcome to Cyprus – birthplace of the ancient Greek goddess of love Aphrodite.

A Mediterranean island surrounded by Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt and Israel.  The southern portion of the island is Greek and the north occupied by Turkey – with a DMZ, passport check and secured by the UN.

Larnaca – a charming beach town. A favorite European destination where the sea is clear and you can walk for days in the shallow surf and only be waist deep.  It’s the slow time of the year and mostly deserted but lucky for us they were having unusually warm weather – high 70’s.
