Some interesting places to go with Telexet Holidays :

Kapparis Beach- Cyprus : Leisure Waves Unlimited.

 A short stroll through the main street of Kapparis is highly rewarding for many reasons. This street was actually the main coastal road to Famagusta in olden days. Famagusta, once the flourishing place in Cyprus with its safe beaches and white sand, has gone to devastation after the Turkish invasion. Now it is a secluded locality with deserted beaches and empty hotels.

‘Protaras aquarium’ which is situated at the opposite end of the main street through Kapparis has a special treat for its visitors. A beautiful cove with a lovely church overlooking the sea is another treat which Kapparis offers to its tourists.

The buffer zone that divides the island into North Cyprus and South Cyprus is at a walk able distance from the main street of Kapparis. This zone has two admirable things- an information center and a zoo. The information center outlines the history of the division of Cyprus. The zoo has a tower from which one can see across the borders of Cyprus.

The fireman’s beach is also at a walk able distance from the main streets of Kapparis. The beach was named so because of its proximity to a training institute for fire service.

Kapparis, with its extolling scenic beauty, quiet beaches and friendly people is what you need if you are looking for a pleasing and lovely holidaying completely ignorant of the hustle-bustle of modern life.

Barcelona,Capital of Catalonia

Barcelona is the second-largest city in Spain and has a
population of 1.5 million. In the last ten years, the city's
economy, and much of its population, has enjoyed a boom

in prosperity. Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, which,
like several other areas of Spain, has its own distinctive
culture and language.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, Barcelona was
one of the first Spanish cities to become industrialized. It fell
into decline in the 1980s, but since 1990 the city has adapted
well to changes in the world economy. Originally a city
of heavy industry, and one of Spain's most important
Mediterranean ports, it has developed into a city of high-tech
industry and a major tourist destination.
Today, Barcelona is a thriving commercial centre. New,
more environmentally friendly factories have been built by
companies such as the SEAT car company, which is part of
Spain's largest export sector of cars and car parts. Spanish
exports to the rest of Europe have increased generally, and
Barcelona, situated only 100 km from the French border, is in

Rainforests of the World

Over half of the world’s rainforests are

in South and Central America. The
remainder can be found in parts of
Africa, Asia and Australia. Almost all
rainforests lie between two imaginary
lines north and south of the equator,
called the ftopic of Cancer and the
fropic of Capricorn. This is why they
are often called tropical rainforests.
It has been hot and wet in the tropics
for millions of years. These constant
conditions have made it possible for
rainforests to develop into the most
diverse and complex environments
in the world. Some scientists
recognise over 40 different types of
rainforest, each with its own variety of
plant and animal life.

Rainforests once formed a wide,
green belt around the planet but today
pictures taken from space tell a
different story. All around the world
large areas of rainforest are vanishing
as people clear the way for crops,
homes and businesses. Many species
of wildlife are disappearing too.

► In the tropics, the only change in weather
conditions is from wet to wetter during the
rainy season. This means that rainforest trees do
not need to flower in spring or shed their leaves
in autumn. Each type of tree has its own growth
cycl^ The varying tree cycles guarantee a
regular supply of flowers, fruits, nuts and seeds
for rainforest creatures.

▼ The largest rainforest in the world stretches
across the Amazon Basin in South America. It
covers an area nearly as big as Australia. The
Amazon River snakes through the rainforest. It
is the largest river system in the world. During
the rainy season, parts of the rainforest are
flooded by the Amazon and fish swim among the
giant tree trunks.
