A Sparkling Hike on Troodos, 30 Nov.

There was lots of sparkle on Troodos on 30 November 2014, as the Cyprus Strollers walked the Persephone trail: at last, there was snow (not a lot) on the slopes around us; and a bright sun above; and a very clear horizon as we reached the wonderful viewpoint at Makria Kontarka, allowing us to see as far as the Salt Lake at Akrotiri; lunch at Louis taverna was a pleasant reward.
