I have been reluctant to watch the news over the last year, so sometimes I’m not really sure of all the happenings in my hometown.
So although I sort-of knew that our restaurants and cafes were starting to reopen again, siga-siga, it became a loud reality when my neck of the woods embraced the new normal with great gusto on Wednesday night.
I know this because the establishment half a mile away was playing live bouzouki music at a deafening decibel level, which echoed through the otherwise silent Cyprus night.
While the music played, a sudden storm made a guest appearance, but it didn’t deter the socially-distanced diners. They simply carried on.
For ages, during Lockdown, it was queerly quiet and oh-so-eerie at night.
But now, the stirrings of life are starting to be seen. There is, however, a time-limit on how long you may linger.
Perhaps I shall venture forth for an outdoor sit-down meal, myself, next week.
So here’s a look at our silly storm from the balcony of my third-floor flat.
And who needs the news anyway, when I can learn what’s happening around the world from all of you?
See you tomorrow!
Love and light from Cyprus
