Finally I’ve found some time to publish a whole bunch of latest photos. All our beach adventures apart from yesterday’s trip to Akamas Peninsula are now resized, annotated and linked in the Photo’s section. Enjoy! :)
Month: August 2003
It’s Saturday again! :) This time we tried to revisit Akamas Peninsula and it’s spectacular nature, beaches, and the taverna.
After a nice meal of pork and some red house wine we decided to explore the area a bit more and got ourselves as far as Lara Bay. There we found the best beach I’ve ever seen. :) Sandy beach, calm, warm water, which felt like oil or something, silence. Excellent place. I just wish it was a bit closer to Limassol then one and a half hour drive. :)
Back to Limassol and another stay at Hazard’s place to finish The Best of Monty Python’s DVD and also watching for “The Pianist“. It was rather good and very well balanced, but somewhat long. Best thing about it was that we watched it after we had eaten a huge order from Pizza Mia. ;)
On the way from work we parked Hazard’s car, picked up Lev, picked up Olga and went to the German restaraunt for some meat and beer. Nice time, lots of fun.
Then, short trip to Hazard’s place to watch “The Third Wheel” with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. It was moderately good with some nice humor. Rather predictable though. Then we stayed a bit longer to watch few episodes of “The Best of Monty Python’s”, which Hazard just received from Amazon.
Lots of fun. Especially the last one we watched, about the lethal joke which kept killing everyone who read it, and which was used my the military, but had to be translated into German so that friendly troops couldn’t understand it. :)
Brought Lev to my place to watch the “Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life” with him and Olga this time. So we did and had some laughs. :)
But before we did so, we had an interesting discussion. It was started by me telling about the Roomba Robot Vacuum cleaners. We started speculating about all the kinds of different models, especially the ones which come back to the charger and dispose collected trash out of them, etc. The need to improve the situation pushed our imagination. We went all the way through the mechanical robots (mostly done by Lev), to organic lequids which will expand to cover all the floor and then get back to one piece (mostly done by me), to bacteria eating trash (mostly done by Lev), to special genetically engineered animals with the fur to collect and clean all trash (mostly done by me). Great fun that was. :) Luckily none of us has any means of bringing any of these plans to life. :)
Today’s day at work had some action in it. Management decided that it’s time we test our responses to natural disasters and staff like fire alarms. So, at approximately 11:15 in the morning all fire alarms went off and people moved in slow, highly organized manner downstairs, using fire exits , out of the building, where they all met up in the field under the frying sun. :) It was speculated that everything went good. :)
In the evening we decided that missing Mars to Earth shortest distance in the last 60,000 years was a bad thing. So we gathered at Kanguin’s place to watch Mars with the telescope that he bought for children long time ago. Needless to say, that Mars was not the main theme during the evening. Tequilla and Kanguin’s cooking skills were. :) Anyway, next time Mars is coming in about 200 years, so I’ll reserve some space in my schedule around that time. :)
