I love the way Cypriots embrace eating and the whole ritual of the family meal together... Lots dishes... You eat little bits of everything... You eat slowly, you talk, you drink.... You enjoy :) It was a truly magical. Then to top it all off, we chucked on our "cosies", and Kriton, Laura, George, and I all jumped in the pool. And then we downed a traditional ...
