Apr 18, 2012 - Larnaca

4-18/19 Wiki Info Larnaca Still in Limassol: Since we heard nothing to indicate the visa to Iran would be available here in Cyprus, there was no need to get up early for a bus to Nicosia/Lefkosa. We had an easy going morning, Valerie talked to Nikos and he made it possible for her to stay at Mistral for 3 days at a reasonable price. We stopped at the internet where Bon heard from Iran...they say they have been trying to get a hold of the visa ministry to determine what the status is for our approval. No definite word as yet but Bon feels...

Aug 29, 2008 - the month of August 2008

hello one and all. well, it has been quiet here on the journal front for very good reasons, of which i shall attempt to fill in some of the gaps over time. The beginning of the month saw me sending mum back to OZ on the big jet plane. the first day of the month i refuelled Titanium (the champagne coloured one usually parked in Monaco) and collected a live body from the big boat for the passage from Monaco to Sardinia via the blurry coastline of French Corsica. the weather was exceptional and we arrived and parked among the teeth like set up...

Feb 22, 2008 - Moonlight Running

Second last day in Kypreos. Tomorrow I will brave the service taxi to Lefkosia, the divided capital of this here burg, and then will attempt to urinate along as much of the Green Line as possible. I did it on the Berlin Wall back in the day, so... Okay, strike that last part. But I will try to see what it's like in that slice of North Cyprus. For those of you who have been asleep since 1974, or who were mercifully unborn at that point, The Republic of North Cyprus **must be followed by skeptical coughing** is the Turkish 37% of the island...

Feb 21, 2008 - Five Guys Named Nick

I’m in Cyprus now. Larnaca, to be precise. Larnaca has 73,000 people and all of them appear to be involved in the tourist industry, which means that in February they are extremely lonely. There are a lot of naff shops which open for one or two unadvertised hours a day and then the staff repairs to their favourite caffeine stop where they discuss the affairs of the day. There was an election here, apparently. That would explain all the excitement; I saw at least two posters which appeared to have been up, recently. The Med is nice. It’s too...

Jul 5, 2004 - Saint Lazarus of the Beach

Nicosia, just freaking hot. Today we went to the beach by way of the church of Saint Lazarus. A strange amalgamation that seems to be rather typical of Cyprus. Go see the shrine of the man raised from the dead by Jesus himself and then go to the beach where you can swim in the crystal clear blue water accompanied by lots of topless European women defying gravity with their every step. The church was nice but small and I was rather bored with the endless lectures that seem to accompany every. single. icon. The beach we went to was at a...
