Kyrenia - The "other" side of Cyprus
We were 21 people that enjoyed going to the Turkish side of Cyprus playing golf in Kyrenia. We had three fantastic days - two with golf and one with a sightseeing in beautiful Cyprus and wine testing on our way to Kyrenia - thank you Lars-Åke for the tour and thank you Evert for the wine testing. I was a bit nervous about entering Turkish territory after our time in prison in Antalya - but we had no problems at all getting into the north part of Cyprus. The second evening a bus was arranged to take us to the beatiful harbour of Kyrenia and we spent a lovely evening there.
However Sven, Göran and myself had some problems entering "our" south part of Cyprus so we had to go to the "Mutfak" as you see from the photo. For my English friends - "Mutfak" in Swedish means where you go to bribe the Customs attendants.
The second golf day Sven won the men´s competition and also the best team together with Gerd-Louise. Anita played excellent and won the total women´s competition. And Lars-Åke was the only one during these days who could place the golf ball in the ball on the peg! Perfect!
Siga, siga - we Swedes are "back home" in Cyprus so when we had our monthly lunch we were many. Look at the picture!
