Larnaka town centre

On Monday mornings, I walk into the town to check for mail at our PO Box. It occurs to me that people who haven't been to Cyprus might not have any idea what a typical Cypriot town looks like. So here are a few random photos:

Looking down the main shopping street - Ermou, as it's called (or Hermes) Street. Cars parked everywhere, of course. Larnaka was not designed for cars.

This is looking in the other direction. A mixture of Greek and English on the signs, more cars, and very Cypriot looking shops.

And one more, showing how uneven the paving slabs are. I'm used to them now, but a friend has her 90-year-old mother staying, who normally lives in a remote village of England. She thinks it's very noisy and busy here, and so difficult to walk with all the uneven pavements.
