Afternoon in Larnaca

Local bus to Ayia Napa to pick up InterCity bus to Larnaca.

Alight at Sculpture Park and wander through. I notice many new additions since my last visit a year ago.

Intercity Bus to Larnaca. Driver not wearing mask covering face, chatting and turning round to passenger entire journey.

Walk along seafront almost to Larnaca Castle then head to Church of St Lazarus and nearby Lazaris.

Lunch a bowl of Greek yoghurt with fruit at Lazaris.

Lazaris used to be excellent so long as avoid the undrinkable coffee. But sadly it has gone downhill. Still good but not as good. Loud music, no sruprise everyone sat outside, my yoghurt with fresh fruit the fruit not freshly prepared as going brown.

I sat outside where it it would be pleasant were it not for the traffic pollution.

The streets are being dug up and paved. Why are they then not pedestrianised as this would greatly improve the back streets of the old part of Larnaca?

I headed to Paul’s Coffee Roaster. The intention had been stop for a coffee and a chat then on to Nick’s Coffee Bike, but best laid plans and all that jazz.

En route I passed a little coffee bar, Kaffea, it was new. My eye caught by a sign saying taf. I decided to stop and have a coffee and that was as far as I got.

I was not going to make 1800 bus as i had intended.

I set off for Paul’s Coffee Roaster and used to get my bearings to head to Nick’s.

No time to stop. I head to sea front for 1900 bus, only to find not running. The next bus, the last bus, not until 2045.

Walking through an alley, itvpasses through a square. I decide to try and find as an open air restarant.

I find and decide to stay and eat. A Greek restaurant. I ask for svoulaki. It is excellent, far better than would get in Protaras.

I am in time to catch the last bus.
