Today I took an afternoon off to run away from computing talks. After finding out that car rentals in Cyprus won’t rent you a car for one day only (insurance problems, apparently -but I suspect it is disadvantageous for them to rent on a daily basis because tourists would squeeze too many miles off a car), a couple of colleagues and I decided for two days. This is a bit of a waste, since tomorrow afternoon we’ll be on an excursion with the conference anyway; but if chess taught me anything good, it is that once one has a plan, one has better stick to it. So we got the car and drove out of Limassol.
Below are a few pictures of the very nice beach of Petra Tou Romiou, also known as Aphrodite’s Rock, where Aphrodite, the greek goddess, was born according to mythology.
All in all, a place certainly well worth a 50km drive!
