Three beautiful ladies inviting a single man for lunch!

I had a lovely day together with my "girlfriends" Aina and Maina visiting Per Nehler in Vouni inviting him for lunch! Aina was a fantastic driver - especially in the village of Vouni where the streets are built for donkies and not for Aina´s big car - a BMW X 5! We did have only a couple of centimeters at each side of the car but she did manage these narrow roads in  a FANTASTIC way! I must say that I am impressed!

Per, Aina, Maina and myself had a lovely afternoon at the Alexander Tavern in Vouni!

Dinner with friends yesterday and Sven and Bengt they day after. at the tennis court..

Yesterday we were invited to close friends not far away from our house but it took me "ages" to drive home around twelve o´clock in the middle of the night as we are celebrating Easter here this weekend and the ceremony in the churches was over at exactly the time when I started to drive home. Lots of people - and cars - on the roads but very fantastic seeing all those people leaving the churches with lights... As I was driving I was not able to take any photos of this fantastic event - and my co-driver was too tired....

The dinner was fantastic starting with champagne to go with chocolate dipped strawberries, salmon, shirmps and avocado, lamb and pork and a fantastic icecreme - and the dinner was served with fantastic wines. We say THANK you to Angela and Dan!

Sven really is enjoying the dinner together with Inger!
And so I am in between those lovely men - Bengt and Leif

He is to be the tennis partner of Sven tomorrow - and he really thought of that during the evening....
And I was there watching them - and Bengt is a fantastic tennis player!

You - are the WINNER - Bengt!

Hail stones in Olympus Village!

Instead of sun beams in our sunny Cyprus hail stones came down from our normally so blue sky... Unbelievable - so we had to take a picture to convince ourselves that this was the truth and nothing but the truth..... But it was still 10 degrees outside so they did melt very quickly!

And the hail stones were biiiig!

Aspargus at Tsangarides Winery

Yesterday we were invited by our close friends Evert and Anita to an "aspargus festival" to celebrate that sping is finally here - or summer here in Cyprus for you living in Sweden! The different aspurgus dishes were superb - and the wines to go with them were exquisit! Angelos - the owner of Tsangarides Winery let us taste all of his wines to go with the different dishes! The weather has been rather windy and cold - compared to what we normally expect living in Cyprus - but this evening the sky was blue and the temperature did show over 20 degrees! We did have a fantastic evening! Look at the pictures below - and you believe me....

Swedish Easter with friends in Apollo Beach

Here in Cyprus we do not celebrate Easter until next week so last night we were invited to celebrate the Swedish Easter with friends. We had a fantastic evening with lots of herring and of course "Janssons frestelse", meatballs and everything else that belongs to our Swedish traditional Easter kitchen - and of course "snaps" to go with the food!

Ready to go for the Easter buffé

And so were these two ladies.....
