Joan had gone off to the Habana Pool and Bar for an aerobics class this morning. The Habana is just before we get to the by-pass roundabout, turn right passing the Santorini Hotel then left into their car park. If you want someplace cheap and cheerful to swim and eat and to watch UK football on big screen TVs, this is the place. Joan had arranged to have lunch with some of the girls there so suggested that I also met up with them at midday. She was asked to pre-order food as it all individually prepared, so I chose the full English breakfast.

The breakfast consisted of 2 pork sausages, fried egg, bacon, mushrooms and grilled tomato with two slices of toast. Really very fresh and quite delicious at only 14 TL (£3.50). The only problem I could see was, I had spent an hour in the gym on a treadmill earlier, burnt off 130 calories and probably put it all back on again.

On the way home I stopped briefly at the car repair workshop along the main road, because I had spotted this earlier in the day.

Cut Paste car

I have no idea what it originally was but I guess you would need four new wheels, a few doors, a new front end and on engine with gearbox to get it going again. I suggested on my facebook page that it gave a whole new meaning to the phrase, "cut and paste". At least you wouldn't need to replace the rear seat or even the sun visor as they were all still there.

This evening we had booked to go to a jazz and blues concert in the Girne Ampitheatre, meeting up with Sally and her daughter. When we got there we were informed that the concert had been cancelled due to all the unrest in Turkey. We had also found out earlier in the day that tomorrow's Peace and Freedom day celebrations had also been cancelled for the same reason and also probably because there was a heavy military involvment in these celebrations every year.
