Sunday 21 October will be remembered as a day of irony. Many chose to stay behind in Nicosia, for fear of possible rain on Troodos. Yet, the two dozens of brave Strollers at Prodromos dam enjoyed a wonderful day out, at an altitude of 1500 m, and not a drop of rain! At same time, the capital was experiencing a heavy downpour with fierce winds. A lucky day for the club, no more, of course. The rewards were plenty for participants who carried along their rainwear, and had a second set of clothes in their car boot, should they be needed. The dam had quite a lot of water, the pines and other trees were resplendent, the buffet lunch delicious. Compliments to Francine, who commented on the new gabion, at a spot where the slope was experiencing soil erosion, and to Taline and Stathis for the photos. Join us on 27 Oct. at Spilia https://cyprus-strollers.org/activities-description/kourdali-spilia-27-oct/
A custom from our childhood years came to being on Good Friday (6 April), when an impromptu stroll was conducted around Nicosia Within-the-Walls. During the afternoon, and before the start of the evening church service, we visited 8 Orthodox churches and venerated their Epitaphios. Let the photos do the talking. Best wishes for a Happy Easter. P.S. Regrettably no photo from Chrysaliniotissa, which is ironic because we thought had the prettiest decoration.

A large group of Strollers were led by Mary to unexplored parts of Old Nicosia and Kaimakli, on a sunny Sunday 20 December 2015. This was the last outing for 2015, and its cultural aspect made it all the more memorable. Compliments to Mary for a well researched and guided stroll, and to Amanda for sharing her photos. Best wishes to all Strollers for a Merry Christmas and a joyful New Year.
