Dear Valued Readers,

As you already know the Editor and Publisher of HomeboyMediaNews blog, is on summer vacations, thus the slow posting of our daily news and other articles.

Currently, I’m enjoying my holidays in Cyprus and so far having a great time. Have visited some of the interesting sites the island offers, among which the Fikardou traditional village which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, the village of Lefkara, famous for its traditional laces, as well as the “Fatsa” Wax Musueum, the Macheras Monastery of Virgin Mary in the Troodos mountains and needless to say that a few more will follow in the next days.

For all the above visited sites as well as the ones to visit in the next days, more detailed information and related articles will follow. As I’m currently on a dial-up connection which is a bit slow, I rely on you to appreciate the slowness in our daily updates.

Enjoy your summer and will talk again soonest!

UPDATE > August 28
Still on vacations and still having a great time!

Other sites so far visited are the Kykko Monastery and the Kykko Museum, the Trooditissa Monastery, both in the Troodos mountains, Omodhos village, famous for its excellent local wines. Next on the agenda are Limassol, Paphos and then Larnaca and Ayia Napa of course!

The Cypriot traditional cuisine is excellent, so do the wines and beer! The people are friendly and at same time providing high quality services. Next Sunday I have been invited to a wedding, so I’m looking forward to attend especially since the traditional customs will be revived.

Currently the temperature has been hiting above 40 degr C. Seaside resorts are crowded with both locals and visitors, many find the mountains of Troodos as an alternative and indeed they have made the right choice in escaping from the heat. If you are somewhere in Platres, Moutoullas or Pedoulas villages or just any other village in Troodos, you can really enjoy a cool breeze and walk in one of the many trails under the shade of pine trees.

Until next time, take care and have fun!
