Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

A Cypriot Welcome

We travelled to Cyprus on the boy's hated airline Easyjet which to them somehow is anything but easy but there were no hitches on this journey and we even arrived 20 minutes ahead of schedule.  This coincided with another packed Easyjet plane from Manchester. Some 600 passengers all trooped into the arrivals hall and there we witnessed a unique Cypriot welcome. 

Two slightly bored immigration officials decided that the best way to deal with the queues is to make them vanish. They just waved everyone through, stopped no one, and simply did not bother with passports - BAH formalities right ?  If these good people want to be here they are jolly welcome ! 
We laughed our heads off - such a great welcome. 

I end today's blog with the Cypriot version of a hot dog.
