No longer able to place Traditional Dancing in the square, Maria brought the guys indoors in sweltering heat, to perform for a group who come from CHINA every year, to KOUKLIA, to enjoy the performance.
People peered through windows to get a glimpse, and the guys came out into the square for the fire dance only. Everything was ' done and dusted' and all quiet by 11.00.
Elsewhere around 40 people sat out to enjoy ' the match' outside V bar - very quietly, and other tavernas were fully occupied.
Now we just need to find a way to stop cars, taxis, vans etc blocking off the Gallery, from the square, - we have a nightly blockade at the coffee shop - nobody's fault in particular, just the fact that the roads are open. - SO instead of being busy serving customers, I sit alone staring at ' a car park'.
And, as an aside, one brave lady ran the gauntlet of cars speeeding through Kouklia Square, to escort a small child who was standing in the middle of the road, back to safety.
