At last!!

Much like the previous two books in this series, ‘Only in Cyprus’ and ‘Only in Cyprus the sequel’, this one will also enlighten you on a unique people on a unique island. Although it is written in a humorous tongue in cheek way, it covers actual fact. I have included some personal experiences that I have used to convey some of the Cypriot traits and traditions.
There are three parts to this book. The first covers some myths/sayings from my Yiayias’, (grandmothers), generation and long before. The second part introduces you to a whole new language invented by us ‘Charlies’, (UK born Cypriots), and as well as this I include some ‘Cypriot slang’. The third part is about personal experiences that explain various customs/traditions that we Cypriots have.
So get comfortable, pour a nice big glass of wine and have a laugh.

A TASTER FROM 'UTOPIAN MAGIC'
When I got back my father had everything ready. There was the customary pot of coffee hanging over the fire so I poured myself one and sat to drink it. I noticed there was also a pan of stew bubbling over the fire. My father appeared from the caravan followed by Jack.

“Hello Nathan, how did it go?”

“Ok Dad, I met a couple of priests who tried to discourage us from performing tonight, but I told them we would be.”

“Yes they came here too and I told them the same, they didn’t go away very happy, anyway let’s eat.”

My father served up two tin plates with the stew that had been bubbling in the pot.

“Mmm, smells good Dad,” I said.

“Best I could do son, it will do.”

I had a few mouthfuls and could not quite make out what meat it was. It tasted good whatever it was cooked in an abundance of shallots which gave it a sweet taste.

“This is really great Dad, what is it? I asked.

“Oh, just something Jack brought back from his travels.”

My fathers’ reluctance to tell me what it was we were eating made me think perhaps it was better I didn’t know, but my curiosity got the better of me.

“Dad, what ARE we eating? I asked smiling at him.

“Well let me see, there are lots of onions,” he said teasing me.

“Yes Dad, got that.”

“And there is a little bit of Carrot I had.”

“Yes father….”

“And a very colorful…” he hesitated…”Snake!” he finished off.

I carried on chewing as if he had just said Beef; we looked at each other for a moment, and burst into fits of laughter.

His love life also changed in the form of Tina, a passionate woman with an insatiable appetite for sex, which Tony was only too happy to provide. Sex eventually turned into love; can love and crime exist side by side? Find out in this second part of Tony’s two worlds

They say our lives are pre ordained, our futures are written, and we just have to find them. We may have an idea or choice in which direction we would go and what we would find, but Tony could NOT have predicted what the future held for him. Starting life as an ordinary naive and innocent boy of Cypriot origins and ending up embroiled in a life that was all but innocent.
Building a successful business that was to take him up the ladder, and then come crashing down due to the so called progress of the Worlds politics. A Divorce failed relationships, passionate affairs and eventually a life of crime. A life he was actually enjoying.
Follow Tony Leonitou’s rise and fall, and his escapades in this first book of his life.
