An Expat Talks about Living in Limassol, Cyprus

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Limassol

How long have you lived there?

2 years

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

Cyprus is a free and easy place where 90 percent speak English. Most of Cyprus life reveolves around small cafes and bars.

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

Because Cyprus lives on tourism there is a wide diversity of people and almost anyone is easily accepted.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Other than tourism and small shops Cyprus has very little industry. Because the people are very lazy a company usually must import personnel if they want a business here.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Most lives revolve around the family. The work ethic is non-existant. After an hours work they need an hours break to recompose themselves. For sun, sand and rest it is ideal. For business it is a joke.

I find the comments extremely offensive. As a Cypriot who lived and worked there people are anything but lazy; (I now live in central Europe because my skills were such that i was offered a job here...)in fact they are very inventive and industrious and some of the most highly educated people on the planet, and definitely better educated that the average Brit. Some labour must be sought abroad simply due to the lack of enough people or some skills.
