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.

“Up, up and away in my beautiful balloon” or so the song goes….

The song by the Fifth Dimension was a bit too sweet for my liking. Listen via the YouTube video link below while you watch the balloons in China.

And now for something completely different. A lighthearted news story from our calm and stable island of Cyprus, or not…

AN ANNUAL festival in Anogyra village held to celebrate the honey and sesame sweet, pastelli, ended on a sour note on Saturday after three people were slightly injured in a fight over balloons. 

Chairs and bottles were thrown in the fight between two families that resulted in four arrests and three people getting slightly injured.

According to police, the fight that broke out after balloons which belonged to one of the families annoyed the other family sitting nearby.

A two-year-old, an 82-year-old and a 48-year-old were lightly injured in the fray. They were treated at Limassol General hospital and then released.

One woman and three men were arrested.
