Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed Cypriot film director, screenwriter and producer Michalis Cacoyannis, 89, passed away yesterday in Athens where he had been hospitalised for ten days.

His art-house films and adaptations of Euripides for stage and screen were critically acclaimed, but who was best known as the director of the 1964 Hollywood hit “Zorba the Greek,” died on Monday in Athens. He was 90 (says the NY Times) and the Cyprus Mail indicates he was 89 years of age.

Some unmistakable music and video footage from the move below:
