There was much sadness during our recent trip to Cyprus. One of our favourite tavernas at Monte Beach, Pissouri, closed because of the arrival of a huge hotel complex!

Dear Monte Beach.. we loved your tasty food
Your hospitality: it was first class
Sea bream with salad brightened up our mood
‘Now view with sadness: “All good things must pass!”
“Columbia Almighty”… kill, destroy
An empty shell.. graffiti: “writ’ in blood”!
Great heartbreak for us: ‘takes away all joy
‘Restore your former glory if we could!
So bleak this scene, we turn away to go
A seagull wails, a magpie chatters past
With litter strewn, our sunshine turns to snow
An eye-sore now, and gone its former cast
We stroll along the ‘Med with moistened eye
Real progress?.. not a chance, I heave a sigh! R.I.P. x x x x
