I was of course referring to my daughter who has taken a fancy to my Jag and drives it most of the time leaving me her Toyiota !!!

Off to Stroumbi the Great tomorrow , i really love the village. Trouble is i have to meet people at the kafenio who are over ....70 !!! Too many youngsters who are rather intrigued on being told I was born in the village !!!

I used to bring my family once or twice to Cyprus , all loved Cyprus . My daughter came to Cyprus with mum in the summer of 1992 age 15 staying with family. She could not speak Greek . She wanted to stay in Limassol and study at the American Academy where my younger brother was the VP. She adored Cyprus and begun earnestly learning Greek and making many friends. She was in a way rather proud that she was christened in Stroumbi , in fact at the same church I was babtised in the old village.

With some hesitation i agreed to her request to remain in cyprus living with my family. On visiting London she was always eager to return here. She has been living here now for 24 years , has a very good position in a financial institution and does not even want to visit London , her last visit was in late 2009 to see her dying mother. She now of course speaks Greek , however always converses with me in English.

My three grandchildren speak both greek and english and I now speak to all three in Greek.

My strong family connections in Cyprus is one of the factors in my being ...besoted with Cyprus. Im not the least religious
In fact i harbour a positive but healthy antipathy towards religion in general , but im above all a " dedicated" family man.

I get on extremely well with my numerous relatives and with Cypriot and other nationals .


Interesting thanks
How some things work out in life sometimes huh?
You "lost" your daughter for a few years and you now "have" her back with the bonus of grandchildren.
Your repatriation couldn't be more fulfilled.
Nice!

Since when did Palodia become red wine country? :?

The last time I lived there it was trout fishing in the nearby dam and lots of carob trees.

I must confess my ignorance not having heard of Palodia . A quick search has told me that it is close to Limassol. My favourite " meering place " is by the peer at enaerios at the little bar by the sea.Will pm you and perhaps we can meet there if ok with you.

Met this ...young old boy yesterday on the Enaerios pier fishing. Being the type who engages easisy with conversation and seing that the young old boy was responsive I introduced my self and also told him that i had returned to Cyprus a few weeks back. Me too he responded. I spent 40 years in the UK and came back 27 years ago !!. I do not regret a moment he told me. We naturally concured on this. He looked just a touch older than I so I told him I was 71. Your just a mere ....kid he replied. How old are you i asked. I was 85 he replied on ....May the 9th.!!!
My birthday !!! You look very good for your age i told him, what is the secret of your youthfulness. SEX he replied chuckling !!!
How often I asked . Mondays, wednesdays and Fridays he replied with a mischievous grin on his face !! Why these days i asked, well he said on these days i eat fasolia and raw garlic. Are you not botheted with excessive ...flatulence i asked. No he said the garlic sees to that.
Curious to find out more I asked if his wife eats the same. Oh no he responds, its not with my wife but mian shrilanguan !!!!
So boys, remember Fasolia and raw garlic, i had some today !!!
