End of my sabbatical!

Typical. Just as I'm about to leave, after two months on Cyprus, the island said to be the birthplace of Aphrodite (yeah, right), the sun is shining...

I've had weeks and weeks of pouring rain and while on a personal level I resent this, the island really needs water. When I was last here, in 2007, the place looked like a desert, the dams were almost empty and water was having to be imported from Greece.

Now, everything is green and leaves are sprouting on the trees. Alas, I'm heading back to a Canadian winter. Brrrrrr.
