Snow in Cyprus

The kids had a couple of days off school for midterm so we decided to go to the mountains and play in the snow the yesterday.  It was difficult to get everybody going in the morning, but it was good to get out of the city.  It had been a few months.  The kids no longer had all the snow clothes that had been such an important part of life in Reit im Winkl so we didn’t stay very long.  30 minutes sledding, lunch and another 30 minutes sledding was enough to get really wet and cold.  Check out the pictures on Flickr.

    That looks like a lot of fun! We are stuck in the middle of Indiana where there are no hills but plenty of snow. Bad combo.

    I’ve seen the news about Cyprus’ new president. Can you tell me what the general feeling is amongst Cypriots and expats? (Anyone can respond to this question…would like to get the general feel for this.)

    Btw….love the photos. They keep us going as we raise support. In the dead of winter it is good to see the sun, even if only in photos.

    He seems relatively popular,he won the run off election and of course he is from the communist party. But what that means here is probably different than what that means in other countries.

    Most people appear pleased because they have a new president. He will be the third since 1974. The last one was in power for 14 or so years. Sounds like people were looking for a change. Lots of parading about, horn honking and things but no real negativity.

    Might be good for international and U.N. relations.
