A touch of Ibiza – DJ Jon Fitz


You’ll like Jon Fitz, says Nikki the PR person, he’s a great interview – and she’s right, I do. Everyone does, it turns out. At school, he recalls, “I was quite a popular guy, because I had a very good way of communicating with people”. In the most successful of the many bands he’s been involved with, “I was like the communicator for the band,” striking a balance between its various personalities. That was in the BodyRockers, who had a No. 3 hit in the UK with ‘I Like the Way You Move’ – one of those ubiquitous pop songs (it’s been used in various films and adverts) that you don’t even know you know until you hear it – and played live to 150,000 people at the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.

A minute with Catherine May Beger Co-Director of Antidote Children’s Theatre

Where do you live?

I live in the centre of Larnaca in a beautiful old Cypriot house with my three-year-old daughter Daisy. Unfortunately, due to difficult times, the house is up for sale so we are currently in transition mode.


Best childhood memory?  

Belly Button Bill stories with my father on numerous camping trips to Wales, Devon and Cornwall. Belly Button Bill was a completely spontaneous improvisation on my father’s part but being the villainous smuggler he was, hoarding sweets from local children, from which ever part of the coastline we were camping on, he soon became an established favourite, up there with Enid Blyton.

African adventure

As newly weds Sara Dunn and her husband decided to drive from Scotland to Africa. Unaware of the challenges they would face they describe their journey as a victory of ignorance over knowledge and, now retired in Cyprus, she has published a book of their adventure. ZOE CHRISTODOULIDES meets them


It’s often said that a life without risks isn’t a life worth living. But the kind of risks that you take along the way are always subjective. For some, an unexpected career change or move to a new town is enough to rock their boat. But for others, there’s nothing quite like a journey into the depths of the unknown.

Restaurant review: Tucano’s Brazilian Barbeque Buffet, Limassol


Brazilian, is not something that is often heard of among Cypriot cuisines, yet I was surprisingly delighted by the Brazilian taste Tucano’s had to offer. Tucano’s should be the go to place for meat lovers all around the island, who get to eat delectable meat options for all appetites. Not only does Tucano’s offer Brazilian, at its finest in Cyprus, it is served all you can eat style! What more could you ask for?

The restaurant, located on Limassol’s Spyros Kyprianou Avenue, has a warm and welcoming décor. The overwhelming play on red, white and black offers the restaurant a sophisticated feel while making it cozy for all of their costumers.

Club review: Jumanji, Paphos

Newly opened Jumanji club in Paphos offers something different for partygoers in the area. Situated just off Ayios Antonios street – street – close to Loft club, it promotes itself as an underground club, and the event organisers are making steps to move away from what they describe as ‘cheesy’ music and offering an alternative night out for discerning clubbers.

Well known Limassol-based graffiti artist Paparazzi (Achilleas Michaelides) has lent his talented hand to the artwork on the building’s exterior and the eye catching feature is already enticing people inside.

Jumanji is all about the music and is a showcase for Cyprus’ home-grown talent; DJs from all over the island will take to the decks and entertain the crowd in the coming weeks.

Eurogroup upbeat on Cyprus deal


THE Eurogroup yesterday appeared confident that an agreement on Cyprus’ bailout programme can be reached soon but not before the new year.

The group discussed Cyprus yesterday though no decision had been expected.

In a written statement issued after the meeting, the Eurogroup said progress had been made towards a possible macro-financial assistance programme and welcomed “that the Cypriot authorities are demonstrating their commitment to such reforms and that the Cypriot parliament has passed a first set of measures that had been agreed.”

“We are confident that agreement on the programme could soon be reached, and we call on the international institutions and Cyprus to finalise negotiations accordingly,” the statement said.
