Wed 1st Dec

The morning was pretty uneventful, and we needed some time to recuperate after the flights.

In the afternoon Niki and I took a leisurely stroll around the old part of Nicosia (capital of Cyprus). A cultural difference to be aware of in Cyprus is that on a Wednesday all the shops shut around 1:00pm, so the streets, although usually alive with all kinds of tourist shops were quite empty.

We stopped off at a cafe on the main street "Makarios Avenue" (named after the Arch bishop back in the 70's) at a cafe called "Da Capo". We had 1 coffee and 1 tea, and the cost came to 5 Cyprus pound which is AUD$15. It's going to be an expensive stay....
