Actually I was in Kato Pathos, Cyprus. Within a few minutes of touching Cypriot soil I was intoxicated by the smell of the delicate citrus blossoms and the sweltering heat of the sun-shine. I am not a beach babe, so this holiday was not spent lying on the beach sun-bathing. It was about spending time with my in-laws and in between exploring some of the rugged landscape, seeing some historical places, listening to the sounds of Cyprus and sampling some local food.
One of the first things that struck me as we drove from the airport to our destination, were these enormous onion shaped terracotta pots that adorned that countryside and many peoples gardens. These large pots are known as Pitharia and were traditionally used to store grain, oil and wine. Nowadays, they are treated as plant pots. I have a number of photographs of my time in Cyprus, some of which I think you will enjoy. I hope to share them with you in the next few days.
