Lovely drive with Geoff and Amanda to Lefkosia (Nikosia) where we crossed the Turkish border. We did some shopping and had a drink of fresh lemonade at one of the cafes in the Suk.
We then drove to the Mall for some lunch before heading to Lefkara, a small village in the mountains famous for their lace and silver.
We got home after six, got changed and went to dinner in the town of Lemesol at TGIF.
It's so much fun being with Geoff, Amanda and ...
A forty minte taxi ride took me to the airport and into a small lounge via a fairly efficient passport control and security check. Larnaca airport is not large but is quite new so it was not far to the gate when we were called.

Anyway, do read my review if you wish and I want to believe that you find it not only interesting but helpful as well.
