A trip to Cyprus: The beginning: a night in Pafos Town2 comments May 26th, 2010 | By Tobias | Category: Travelling
The harbor of Pafos is picturesque. Lots of taverns line up along the pier and in perfect English people greet you with: “Hello my friend, take a look at the menu!”. This is a good reason for me to walk quickly by those taverns.
These days the harbor walk was full with little booths where games can be played and sweets can be bought. The personnel handling these booths are form Ukraine, Romania and Bulgaria, trying to sell “local delicatessen“.
Finally a local. But she was not into chatting. Too busy frying her Lukumades.
One wonders for whom as there is not much business at the pear tonight.
This area is clearly signed as “Tourist area”. The restaurants here in the harbor were often strange and offered combinations of dishes that I thought could never come out of the same kitchen. This is a particularly wierd example: Mexican and Chinese food served by Philippine waitresses.
We decided to eat at a Chinese place. The decoration was too tempting. The food was good and the service very friendly.
One really needs to try, to get an idea of the original Pafos town and keep away from anything tourist orientated.
