First Lady of Cyprus Visits the SMCCU

We were pleased to receive  First Lady Elsie Christofia,  wife of  Dimitris Christofias  current President of the Republic of Cyprus  for a short walk around the Bastakiya, as well as a  Q & A session held in the SMCCU House.  The First Lady and our GM spoke about the commonalities between the two counties with regards to customs and traditions as well as the importance of traditional dress in our societies, historically as well as today.  The Ambassador was treated to some traditional Arabic Coffee  and Dates and was keen to learn about the evolution of the “drink of hospitality” in the region.
