Poetry and Diplokampina

And now, something to cheer us all up. It comes in the form of a picture a well-wisher e-mailed. The picture you see comes from the Cyprus News Agency with the following caption attached:
Μετά τη βροχή και το μαύρο πέπλο το πολύχρωμο τόξο στολίζει τον ουρανό. Μια νέα ελπίδα γεννιέται στις καρδιές των ανθρώπων. Στη φωτογραφία το ουράνιο τόξο στεφανώνει στο βάθος το δάσος της Αθαλάσσας και το κατεχόμενο ύψωμα 'Αρωνας'.
Semi-literal translation: "After the rain and the dark veil [it cast], a rainbow graces the sky. New hope is born in the people's hearts. In the picture we see the rainbow adorning Athalassa forest and the occupied Aronas plateau".

Please excuse the shoddy translation. Poetry has never been my strong point, despite the hopes I find flourishing in my heart.

Still, it goes to show that not all news is bad news. And, as of Monday, it's free cars for everyone in Stravaraland. I believe the best deal on wheels would now be this diplokampino and screw emissions.

From a semi-frozen cyclist and committed walker- thanks for the link.

I sincerely hope you mean the link will help you buy a new Hummer. This subversive walking/cycling epidemic is highly UnCypriot and threates to unravel the delicate fabric of our misunderstood society.

Go to the bank, young man, and get thee a loan to get some real wheels!
