1. Don´t ask for a Turkish Coffee when you´re in Cyprus. At least I got to learn this one by proxy, after a fellow journo made the gaffe.
2. Russia is going to be a superpower again, if she´s not already… Learnt this from a Russian colleague on the press junket with me. She didn´t say so, in as many words. But I drew my own conclusions.
3. Courtesy of Greek mythology: if you think your dearly beloved has died, don´t kill yourself. They are probably still alive (if not kicking). The only reason they don´t run into your arms as expected is because
they´re too busy hiding behind a rock or summat.
Resort marketing dude: There are many foreigners here. All my friends are married to foreigners. I am married to a Yugoslavian. They are married to Russians, Ukranians, French, British…
T: Okay, so where do I find myself a nice Cypriot guy then?
RMD: You will have to go to Limassol.
Unfortunately, Limassol wasn’t on our schedule, so no Shirley Valentine (but younger) for me 😦
Weekend was so-so healthy living wise. Went to bikram yoga (Friday) and swimming (Saturday). Did drink a couple of beers at the Coldplay concert but managed to refrain from smoking, even though it was *really* tempting.
Now that my flat has emptied out from being a hippie commune* I am very grateful to have my bed back. Even though I have been sleeping a lot better since I started yoga and stopped smoking, the couch in my lounge is far from comfortable.
Yoga today again, where Brian suggested I participate in the 30 day challenge, which starts April 1. The crazy thing is, instead of thinking that Brian is crazy, I am seriously considering the idea, although Cyprus does get in the way somewhat.
*A sad goodbye to Shennie Pie and Mister Moose, but a happy hello to their “replacements”, who will be named when I think up suitably cool monikers for them.
