The Old Olive Mill, Kolossi

Tonight we're off out with some of our best friends to the Old Olive Mill situated on the main road that runs between Kolossi and Erimi villages.

For such a compact place it has an extensive menu and reasonable prices. Surprisingly, the 2 don't always go together in Cyprus!

We know that Eugene and Rachel will look after all 6 of us this evening. The only hard part now, is deciding what to have!

Pop in sometime when you're passing and visit them. You can stop by and have a drink, a sandwich or a light lunch and then nip in to the Olive Mill Museum to find out how it all works.

On the first Monday in every month the Old Olive Mill plays host to a charity book sale in aid of Catsnip. Catsnip trap and neuter stray cats within the Limassol district and then return the cats back to their location.

NEW STAMP ISSUE - 28 January 2011


Anorthosis Centenary (100 Years of Ammochostos Football Club) and 18th Century Famous Composers, featuring Bach, Mozart and Beethoven.

Sample images can be found below:


Issue 01/2011
100 Years of Anorthosis, Ammochostos Football Club 

Anorthosis was established in Ammochostos in 1911 and this year it celebrates 100 years of historic, sporting and cultural achievement. It was and continues to be a beacon of progress and a contributor to the Cyprus community and in particular the national issue. It takes a leading role and has assisted in encouraging sports through the various team sections it operates. The Anorthosis Association displacement due to the Turkish invation in 1974 did not put an end to its brilliant course; from its temporary base in Larnaka, it has succeeded in progressing in sport gaining an international reputation. Therefore, Anorthosis is undoubtedly an unyielding ambassador of Cyprus. Its main vision remains its return to its ancestral land.

18th Century Famous Composers

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
Johann Sebastian Bach was born at Eisenach, Germany the youngest of 11 children. By the age of 10 his parents had died and he was brought up by his elder brother. He came from a musical family and became one of the world's greatest composers. His musical talents developed from string-playing to composing and performing keyboard and sacred music. He became well known as an accomplished organist while serving Price Leopold of Anhald-Cothen in 1717. He spend the last years of his life in Leipsig where he wrote 300 cantatas for the city churches.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg, Austria. "Amadeus" is the Latin version of "Theopilus", one of the four names he was given an birth. Mozart was a musical prodigy. He composed his first pieces for the keyboard aged five and soon mastered the violin. Among his works were more than 20 symphonies, various operas, concertos, quartets and comic masterpieces such as "The marriage of Figaro". Mozart married Constanze Weber. They had six children of whom only two survived. Although he had many commissions he was financially insecure. He died a pauper without completing his last commission "The Requiem Mass".

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Born, Germany. His first music lessons were from his father. Beethoven left school at the age of 11 but continued his music lessons under other musicians including Mozart and Haydn. In 1799 he composed his piano Concerto "The Pathetique" which he dedicated to his lifelong financial supporter Prince Karl Lichnowsky. He wrote many symphonies, piano sonatas, quartets, the Emperor concerto and one opera "Fidelio". His desire to marry was never fulfilled and by 1812, tormented by his deafness he became anti-social and eccentric. He gave his last piano performance in 1814.
