What our IT Dept do to us.

What our IT Dept do to us. by CyprusPictures
Last night I complained on my Facebook page that I was sick of the sight of EURO 2012 "stuff" as in my full time job me and another colleague have spent the last week putting together promotional mailers in readiness for the next few weeks. So my head was full of headers, images and country names...
This morning when we logged into the back office admin on our laptops in the office, this is what we found!
It turned out our IT Manager had been in and made a small "fix" to our systems. It only affected our two systems. He's a bad lad!

A day in Cyprus Philately, a set on Flickr.
So on 4th June 2012 which was Kataklysmos "Festival of the Flood" Greek Orthodox public holiday - we chose to go to the north of Nicosia as we needed to visit the philately department.

Due to the difference in religions in the segregated north we knew the office would be open...

We got to meet the new man in charge of the office. He took over in December 2011 so we just missed him on our last visit.

He kindly allowed us to take some photographs too so here you will find some photos of the first Turkish Cypriot stamps issued by north Cyprus and some fantastic photographs of the former Postmaster Generals of Cyprus.

These include: J A Bulmer (1878 - 1883), Edwin Edgintons (1920 - 1922), Ahmed Aziz (1950 - 1954), Polyvios Hadjiioannou (1961 - 1963) and Ismail Bozat (2004 - 2009).

We spent the rest of the day walking around some slightly different streets than we usually visit and found some wonderful places we haven't seen before.

I got some photos of some old Ottoman tombstones from a local museum as well as a photo of Fazil Kucuk's house (and museum).

I will be adding these soon to my Flickr account.
