Mediterranean colours

There is something very Mediterranean about this Terracotta colour, much used for Olive Oil containers in that region.

I'm glad I complained when we got to the hotel. I was able to get us upgraded to a better room.

Unfinished projects

A striking feature of the Cypriot landscape are the ubiquitous unfinished projects. Clearly quite a sum of money has been spent here, but work has come to a halt and all the construction equipment has long gone.

You see estates of villas where the roads, kerbs and lighting are all installed but there are no buildings. Why are there so many unfinished projects, where did the money come from, and why were they abandoned?
