Work…work…work. Last day of work for this week, though :)
After the work, I’ve picked up Lev, Hazard and headed home for Olga. Then, all together we went to Germania restaraunt for some real good food and real good beer. Places like this are empty these days, due to so called “Beer Festival”.
Now, let me tell you something about beer festival in Limassol, Cyprus. First of all, Cyprus has nothing to do with beer. It’s a wine place. To prove this, Limassol hosts wine festival every year for last 20 or 30 years. And it’s kind of cool – all wine makers present themselves in one place. By “all wine makers” I mean really ALL wine makers – from individuals to factories. And all of them gather in one place. You pay a pound or two for the ticket and you can enjoy all the wine you can. This is, though, very different from the beer festival. Originally, there was no beer festival in Limassol. Niether was any in Cyprus. But, there happened to be one successful bar, called “Chesters“, and you know it, if you’ve been on these pages at least once. I am a regular there. Anyway… The owner of that bar decided that it would be nice to start a good tradition for beer lovers. So, he started hosting “Chesters’ Beer Festival” every year right in front of his bar. Many beer importers were putting their tents around the place, live music was playing and hot dogs were cooking. Anyone who thought they were missing something, could pretend to be vising the bar and just going in for a good old whisky or something. So it was for three or four years. Then, Limassol municipality decided that most of the city is missing it, and that it would be good to have some extra money instead of giving it some rich guy who already has a proper bar, so they started their own festival. I knew from the very beginning that it will suck, so I didn’t go. But Lev did. And his impressions were much worse then what I was expecting – no draught beer, no Carlsberg, no food, no proper sound. Rap music mixed with greek traditional music, announced by DJ for small, but expensive bottles of beer. Everyone ended up in the brewery, which is nex to the festival place.
So, since everyone was on a festival, we had a great time in empty German restaraunt. Then we went to Hazard’s place for some more beer and a movie. It took Hazard some time to reconfigure his Nvidia to spit things out to the TV, since his last upgrade, so we had a pleasent game of chess with Lev on my newly aquired Sony Ericsson P800. :)
After Hazard managed to bring the vision back, we watched “The Animatrix“, which was good, but boring enough to not stop me from falling asleep right in the middle of it. Give me a credit – I hate Japanese animation, so I was very strong to stay until the middle. Though it was exactly Japanese, but it was very close. :)
By the good old tradition, after falling asleep at Hazard’s place, I get home and continue sleeping there… :)
