However as I am writing this I find my recollection of the day's events somewhat sketchy to say the least. I know we went to a special party on the grand terrace.
I know we were enticed from our table to the table of William and Caroline who were a couple who were clearly on the verge of peaking early. They were original type hippies who were incredibly eccentric and obviously very very rich as they now lived along the shore of Lake Tahoe in a 16 million dollar log cabin! Will tried to explain the business he was in but all I remember is it was something to do with life extension. Caroline was a little more mysterious. Then we were joined by Geraline and Walter who were respectively a judge and a heavy-hitting lawyer. Now these two were a lot more normal and they want to visit us in Cyprus. They are a lovely couple as is Will and Caroline but they do indeed peak early and incredibly leave before the fireworks. The fireworks kick off at 9.45pm and are spectacular but that's the last we remember of the night!!
Well it's finally here - Independence Day and there is so much razzmatazz going on outside our hotel and on the beach. Our hotel is spit roasting a hog just below our balcony.....ummmmm.
