There are several types of snakes on Cyprus, most being harmless to humans, such as the Whip snake, Cyprus Whip snake, Grass snake & Coin snake. The one really dangerous & highly poisonous snake is the BLUNT NOSED VIPER & a bite needs treatment at a hospital very quickly. All hospitals carry antidotes. Another poisonous snake is the Montpellier - not as venomous as the Viper, but its bite must again be treated by a doctor, or preferably, at a hospital. A third venomous snake is the Cat snake, small and usually not dangerous to humans. It still should be avoided as it has venom. Snakes of Cyprus only strike in defence or for food. They do not look to attack humans and will avoid contact unless surprised or disturbed. There is an expert on snakes in the Paphos area of Cyprus, Hans-Jorg Wiedl, known by local folk as 'Snake George.' Unfortunately he has lost his premises near Agios Georgios but hopes to find a new site. Details can be found on the Net, under "Snake George' & he has published an authoritive book on the snakes of Cyprus.

Northern Cyprus is like Turkey in most respects including drinking. While drinking is against Islamic Law, a large percentage of Turkish Cypriots drink. Zivania and Raki are the most common forms of hard liquor, but wine and beer are also very common. In terms of non-alcoholic drinks, Ayran (a yogurt-like drink) and citrus juices are quite common.

"se agapo" (long form) "sagapo" (short form)
even if there is another phrase in the cypriot dialect, they will know what this means. Cypriot Greek speakers can understand and speak mainland greek pretty much fluently.
We can understand Greek very well-its our language, the Greeks are the ones who have problems understanding us- but anyway if you want to tell it in Cypriot you'll say 'agapose'
