I can see a huge cloud of black smoke rising from behind the hill in the distance due east of me. It looks to be in the area inland from the airport.

Any ideas?

This wind'll be whipping it up - is it getting any less yet?

Nope - seems quite the opposite.

Still clouds of smoke rising up but much whiter in colour now.

Could it be the tip at Ayia Marinouda?

Yes it's the tip again, a bit to cold for spontaneous combustion I suspect that they are having a bit of a tidy. When I drove past earlier it looked like it had started at the bottom and was working its way up the face.

Thanks for that. Is that the tip on the left as you drive away from Paphos (rather than the old one on the right that has recently been landscaped)?

Yes it's the one on the left as you drive towards limassol. I think that they only take building waste there now but there is years of combustible rubbish underneath it.
