The good weather drew a large group of Strollers, some for the first time, to the stroll in Athalassa park, in the outskirts of Nicosia, on Saturday 30 January. Compliments to Gerard for leading this outing. Join us on 7 Feb. at Galata.
It was a most memorable outing, in which the warmth which flowed from the inside prevailed over the very cold temperatures outside. The Cyprus Strollers bonding and cheer was prevalent in several ways on Sunday 24 January, on the stroll along the sea front in the city of Larnaca; temperatures rose high from the start, on the initiative of Koula, who brought the Vasilopitta, which we all shared, with a wish for many blessed activities in 2016; everybody gave a special cheer for Marina, who saw her luck delivering promises, as she found the coin hidden in the cake; our walk leader offered the group the gift of a visit inside the castle, along our way; and then there was nothing stopping the child in us, as we came across the new gym instruments installed on the pavement in Phinikoudes. A big cheer to Koula, Patricia and all participants, for your contribution in turning an otherwise ordinary stroll into an extraordinary experience. Join us on 30 Jan. at Athalassa.
A sunny weather encouraged a very large turnout for the hike around Pipis hills on Saturday 16 January. The Strollers welcomed new participants, 3 dogs and enjoyed the energetic climbing, the several splendid views and spirited conversations. Compliments to Angelos for expert leadership and the photos. Join us on 24 Jan. at Larnaca seaside.
A very large gathering of Strollers walked along the coast, from Oroklini to Dhekelia and back on 10 Jan.; in spring weather, with the sun shining, the sea calm, sea gulls flying around, and no wind; it was a wonderful occasion to burn some of the festive season extra calories, further inspired by the surprise reading of some poetry by the walk leader, which sparked inspiring conversations on the way; the outing was concluded with a delicious meal at a fish restaurant. The Cyprus Strollers bid Jiawei farewell, on his last walk, before his return to China. Compliments to Teresa, Amanda and Alex for the photos. Join us at Pipis on Sat. 16 Jan.

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 26,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 10 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
