Studying in the forest of Prodromos

How would you fancy taking your education here?

I came across a nice article in the online news version of the Cyprus Mail today.


TUCKED away in a corner of Prodromos is a colonial stone building with a beautifully-kept courtyard, neatly-cut grass dotted with bright pink flowers and towering pine trees. Situated 1,406 metres above sea level, the location suggests luxury hotel or quiet retreat. It is in fact a college – the Cyprus Forestry College – some of the graduates of which have been all over television screens in the past month gallantly battling a spate of summer forest fires.

Balloon flight over Luxor, Egypt.

Some of you who know me personally may be aware that we are soon to go back for a few days to one of our favourite holiday destinations.

We're off to Luxor, Egypt and can't wait to get there!

We're going with 4 of our friends and me and my other half are most definitely taking a balloon flight over the West Bank (we hope, depending on the wind direction).

I found this article today and thought I would share it with you. There are some fabulous photographs of the sunrise over Luxor.

Nigerian Scammers

Okay, so we all receive the phishing emails from Nigeria every so often offering us enormous amounts of money after the death of a rich relative.

We received such an email this morning but liked the fact the tack had changed somewhat.

Instead of wanting to give me cash from a long dead relative or to get payment for helping someone else release their funds, it seems this one is a computer analyst with a conscience!

This is the email I received today:

I am Miss Elizabeth Amama  Citizen of Ghana, a Computer Analyst with Central Bank of Nigeria. I am 28 years old, just started work with Central Bank of Nigeria. (C.B.N.) my dear,  I came across your payment file which was marked X and your fund release Hard Disk painted RED, I took my time to study it and found out that you have really attempted to receive it but the fund has not been release to you. The most annoying thing is that the directors and top officials of this nation cannot tell you the truth that on no account will they ever release the fund to you; instead they let you spend money unnecessarily. 

I swear with my life that I do not intend to work here all the days of my life, I can release this fund to you if you can certify me of my security and how I can run away from this Nigeria if I do this for you, I cannot run back to Ghana as they have all my information in Ghana, and if I don't run away from this country after I made the transfer to your bank account, I will be seriously in trouble and my life will be in danger 

The only thing I will need to release this fund is a special HARD DISK, we call it HD120 GIG. I will buy two of it, recopy your information, destroy the previous one, and punch the computer to reflect in your bank account within 24 banking hours. I will clean up the tracer and destroy your file, after which I will run away from here Nigeria to meet with you in your country if you are interested. But you must assure me the absolute confidentiality of this deal before I can do any further. 

Do get in touch with me immediately. 

You should reconfirm your current information as follows, 

Your Full Names:
Current Home Address:
Current Telephone Numbers for easy communication:
Active Bank Details where you want the fund to be transferred into:

Regards,

Miss Elizabeth Amama
Computer Analyst
Central Bank of Nigeria
