I woke up this morning thinking it was going to be a great day, work I love, people I enjoy working with, my health, and the health of my family, plus a bright and early start for an invigorating workout at the gym.
In that spirit, I headed out on the highway towards Limassol, and just before 8am, reached the exit for Mesa Geitonia. I saw two police officers on the highway, and some cars stopped in front of them, so I slowed down and halted, waiting for the traffic to move forward.
In the back of my mind was the little voice telling me - watch out behind you in case someone doesn't slow down in time - after half a lifetime of driving in Cyprus, hyper paranoia is the kindest way I can describe the way I drive. But it all looked ok in my rear view mirror.
