PostSubject: When you least expect it...   Sun Jun 21, 2009 5:14 pm

I have just returned from holiday in Cyprus, a place called Pissouri which is south from Paphos. There was a lot of development going on in the area, holiday villas and resorts, but Pissouri itself was a small place by the beach with a more traditional village up in the hills... all very nice and hot, snorkling with the fish, getting attacked by a mantis, lizard spotting amongst ancient ruined temples and rescuing mole crickets from the pool (weird creatures)... oh and the hopeless task of trying to find chameleons and turtles...

Anyway, enough of that, for anyone who's still reading (!), what was pretty cool was that on the first day I went down to the local mini-market/tourist shop place and near the back noticed some football shirts. Pretty dismal fakes of course, a Milan, a Juve, URRGGHH a merda (put straight to the back of the rail of course)...
Then a familiar blue cheers

I declined on buying it as it was much too large and expensive for a fake, but I put it to the front of the rail for everyone to admire!

A few days later I was swimming in the sea one afternoon and saw a couple walking along the beach, the guy was wearing a sleevless vest in a sky blue - as he got nearer I saw it was the banned shirt from 2002. I called out that it was good to see a fellow Lazio fan, telling him I liked his shirt and that it was a rare one. He seemed shocked and said he'd always thought it was a training shirt! I told him they go for a bit on ebay and were banned like the Cameroon ones for the World Cup.

Anyway, it was nice to see a prescence out there, fake and real. Pity I never saw that chameleon... Crying or Very sad
