     Keo-The Beer of Cyprus            MEZZE                          The Souvlakia

KEO is a Cypriot beer, the only domestic brand in widespread national distribution. It is a light straw-colored lager with a thick head, and is sometimes compared to a pilsner in taste. The beer is brewed in Limassol, in Cyprus. The beer won the 1987 brewing industry world bottled lager competition Gold Medal. I drunk it several times at home, and I have to say that it is really tasty and cheap!! 

MEZZE: The food comes without ordering and won’t stop coming until you say so. It all starts with a fresh saladpickled vegetables and capers and olives. The bread is freshly baked. Everything is so fresh, its simply great.Everything is served in small bowls and dishes.

Once they are emptied new ones are brought. Chicken cooked in creamLamb with lentils, roast beef with chutney… a perfect way of spending an evening.

I went to the Plaka Tavern. It was nice and the people there were really friendly. Unfortunately, we had no live music. But I do hope that next time I go there I'll get some!

Souvla, in Greek σο?βλα, is a popular dish from the island of Cyprus. It consists of large pieces of meat cooked on a long skewer over a charcoal barbecue. I ate it many times already and it was so delicious. I can't wait to grill some again!

I think I have lots of others things to try still! And it's good because I have time for it!

Weather here :)

The weather was one of the reasons why I decided to come here.

Well, it has been bad since one week: heavy rain shower, cold (8 for the night and 17 during the day).They forecast the same weather till the end of next week. I'm sad. I need sun, beach and I can't wait anymore for the hot season to come: news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/4208

I really hope it's gonna be better in a while.

I still have so much work to do for the University and I am so bored. I have to find a subject for a presentation on Tuesday and I need to write 3 assignements. Lots of things to do!!!

On the Other Side :)

Publié dans Cyprus

 On Monday, I went to the turkish side of Nicosia: Lefko?a. I was really surprised and found it very nice and different from the european side.

To go there you have to cross the "green line", and it's an easy thing really. You give your ID to the turkish cypriot border guard, then you take a piece of white paper you write your information on it and they stamp the paper and not your ID or passport. They do so because if when you come back and show your passport to the greek cypriot border guard with the Turkish Republich of Northern Cyprus's stamp then they won't let you cross the border again. It is really simple anyway. The feeling is strange but what you discover on the other side is worth it.

What I firstly saw on the turkish side was a recently renovated Han (Büyük Han) that has largely been given over to local artisans. I really love this place. The people were really friendly and the atmosphere there was peaceful and pleasant.

I visited a Mosque, it is Selimiye mosque, formerly St. Sophia's cathedral. It was built between 1209 and 1226. From the outside it looked surprisingly high, nice and like brand new. But inside, I was disppointed. Nothing special at all. This Mosque became a symbol for all the turkish people. But we should not forget that before becoming a Mosque, this building was a Christian Catholic Cathedral in medieval times, and was converted to a Mosque after the Ottoman invasion.

ITHAKI for Erasmus :)

Publié dans Cyprus

 Ithaki is the club in Nicosia where all erasmus meet each week. It is really nice and you have the possibility to meet new persons.

Last wednesday was so funny! I took lots of pics and I even met a guy from my city in France here. It was quite strange to feel at the same time so far and close to home! :) 

Here are some pics of the party and a link to the website of the Bar.http://www.ithakivenue.com/Events.html)

Ayia Napa

Publié dans Cyprus

 My last weekend was wonderful! I went to Ayia Napa a beautiful place to be!

Originally a small fishing village, this is now a major tourist centre. Either than the beautiful beaches in this area and plenty of beach events, Ayia Napa has become very popular for its magnificent night life there are hundreds of night clubs and bars to choose from.

I discovered the great landscapes of Cyprus. I really felt in love with this Island...
