The well-known Cypriot photographer Doros Partasides hosted the famous UK author Victoria Hislop, upcoming actress Daphne Alexander and the director of the CTO UK office Orestis Rossides to a business lunch.
Mr Partasides offered Ms Hislop his quality book with unique photos of Cyprus entitled ‘Faces of Cyprus’.
Daphne Alexander highlighted the many cultural attractions of Nicosia, including the new Leventis museum of art, and gave her an excellent book on the last divided capital in Europe.
Mr Rossides invited Ms Hislop and her husband Ian Hislop, editor of Private Eye and presenter of various programs on BBC TV, to visit lesser known areas of the Republic of Cyprus and experience the genuine hospitality of its people and its excellent food and wine.
Ms Hislop recently published a most favourable article in the travel pages of the Sunday Times.
Despite her heavy commitments over the next few months she will consider visiting the Republic of Cyprus with a view to discover and highlight its many cultural, natural and man made attractions.
