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.

Nature unperturbed by financial rumblings

Nature has been forceful and up front in Cyprus this year and perhaps it is just coincidence but is this not the year of the Snake ? I have seen more snakes this year then I have in my whole life and none more vivid then the display we witnessed a few days ago in Pomos of two black snakes, non poisonous, measuring a metre or more intertwined like a DNA sequence in a mating dance that had us all enthralled. We watched them slither and slide around each other for a good few minutes literally from a few feet away. Then suddenly one pulled away and disappeared into the undergrowth. 

A kestrel which is a bird that we have seen in India, the UK and in Cyprus decided that the deck was definitely its favourite place.We approached it and it seemed quite unafraid. Maybe it was looking for the snakes too. We came across another snake as we drove down the coastal road this one sadly coming  to a sticky end. 

So not just the territory of down under. Its their year it seems and they are out there. This if what is said on the internet on http://www.hanban.com

The Introduction of 2013 Year of Snake
2013 is the year of the black Snake begins on February 10th shortly after the New moon in Aquarius, the humanitarian of the zodiac. This 2013 year of Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline will be necessary for you to achieve what you set out to create. The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs. It is the enigmatic, intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animals Signs. Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means that your family will not starve.

I like the good omen - it counteracts the financial crisis perfectly!
