I've just been informed that - in Canada at least - 'travel writing' (whatever that is) is listed under 'Creative Non-fiction' - does that help us categorise (if we must) Bitter Lemons?

  Charlie sent me this. It makes you think, as so and so used to say. Poetic images and reality mix.

    The Villa nestles within the wonderful subtropical banana plantations.  It has a stunning, panoramic view of Banana Bay, with its turquoise clear waters and breathtaking sunsets. This is a very, very special location. Plantation House is secluded and peaceful yet within easy reach of the shops, restaurants bars and supermarkets at Coral Bay Resort - which is just a short drive away. A little further on is the Akamas peninsula with it outstanding natural beauty
    Take an 15 minute drive to Paphos Town with its tourist area and quaint harbour and castle surrounded by a great selection of fish restaurants and taverns. The Archaeological Park is here with some of the world's most famous mosaics.


    So pack your ermines, Mary­We are getting out of here right now­I've seen this happen before­
