Go there to eat, seriously, awesome local food
31.03.2012 - 31.03.2012
After a marathon of new cities these last few days, we decided to Limassol fairly easy and relaxed, which still ended up being a fantastic day. After a slower start from the ship, we had a long walk along the beach taking in the sights and sounds, and even taking a turn or two on the swings. It’s a super relaxed town, at least this time of year, with perfect weather and great people. After a few hours walking through the town, we sat down for an INCREDIBLE local lunch at an outdoor cafe. We obviously went for the chef recommendation of the super sampler platter of hot and cold mezzes (sausages, breads, dips, hummuses, yogurts, chicken wings, and all kinds of other stuff). I’m pretty sure the table was fully set and cleared three different times, all with different and delicious items. We sat there for an hour or two, enjoying the sunshine and perfect weather (and beer or two), next to a table of friendly, older locals.
Too full of food to move much, we wandered downhill for a nap outside of a small castle, and eventually made it back to the ship. Quite a day, and just what we needed.
