Rented a car for a few days and drove myself around Cyprus (well the half not controlled by Turkey). I figured this was probably the only way to see the cultural sites as many are out of the main cities in "stand alone sites". Getting a bus wasn't really an option. A tour maybe but didn’t want that.

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.

I am driven to the Lefkara Hotel and Restaurant where I am to spend the following 2 nights.
