Tomorrow is the 37th Anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus.
POSTED 19th July – I’ve found a couple of pages on the BBC News website which for those of you who weren’t around in Cyprus at the time (like me) may find of particular interest.
Tomorrow morning the air raid sirens will most likely sound in remembrance of this auspicious day. Usually we hear them around 06:30hrs in our village on the western outskirts of Limassol.

20th JULY UPDATE – the sirens went off before 06:00hrs in our village this morning. Before that our cat had been wailing and disturbing us for most of the night so not a good sleep for us. I really did not want to get out of bed today, except that it was too warm to stay in it!
