If you are wondering why all the offices in Cyprus are closed today, I’ll tell you. Today is the national holiday – Greece Independence Day. Cyprus has a very strong connection with Greece and celebrates many Greek holidays nation-wide.
There will be a military parade in Limassol on the Makariou III Ave. . I am not sure about the time, but my guess is somewhere around 11:00am. There will probably be something in Nicosia too.
Since I am working in the NOC during the first half of the day, I won’t be able to attend and photograph the parade. If you have any pictures or stories from the event, please post them or link to them via comments.
