Hi Lysi

I am back:

Monday: Larnaca - Heathrow flew out at 17.20
Tuesday: Stansted - Paphos arrived 20.15!

Saw two sets of friends and then spent a fortune in 2 hours!
Weather in the UK 2C. but sunny and clear. I love London!

Cyprus Airways were on time and even the 'serviodora' smiled!

Hi Lysi

I flew on Cyprus Airways (trying to patriotic - you may be aware it may not survive until the end of the year!), it cost CY£185.

Which parts of London do you think are a dump? I usually spend my time in Oxford/Bond/Regent Street but even the City has some nice buildings, both modern and ancient.

I am impressed you managed to spend a fortune is 2 hours! and in Bond street etc, it takes you 2 hours to pay for your shopping around this time of year, let alone have the time to look around, maybe you can give this old londoner some tips of how you do it!!

Hi little sugar

A Personal Shopper helps :-) and I tend to travel over for high value items, I cannot buy here, rather than the odd item of clothing.

hi svetlana, cyprus airways is so exspensive to fly with, thats why they are in trouble.
I am not to keen on london its dirty, expensive and full of crime, also i get pissed off by seeing those bloody adverts on the underground for holidays to the occupied north of cyprus.
