---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Laiki Yitonia is a borough in Nicosia, Larnaca is where the airport is located, the actual temperature in Nicosia now is 30 Celsius and Makarios Avenue and Stassicratous are certainly in Nicosia.

The tweeter is based in Greece and seems that they flew from Majorca into Larnaca/Nicosia Cyprus this morning.

I don't like that this "sighting" in Cyprus is from someone that began tweeting only 19 hours ago, but to tweet for 19 hours and build up a -somehow- credible story still leaves me with doubts...

Agreed. But at this point we will follow... Do remember though that our first believed to be faux Cyprus info came from someone really from Singapore, so posting in Chinese might not be a stretch....

If teams are leaving Malawi today as believed, then this is clearly false. Will ask for more info at the Malawi end.

Sounds like she's been using QQ (a Chinese social medium), which may not be working in Cyprus.

Reena taught me this new media, it's pretty convenient. I LOVE YOU REENA! When I get back to Greece I'll buy something for you! @SB_RENA It's 1pm, I'll buy a meal to share with you! Are you hungry?

Natural coffee is still the best. On the floor just below the supermarket. The QQ here isn't reliable, Lulu's Twitter and the new Myspace works pretty well though. It's better to change to using Twitter for this trip.

Step by step... She tweets at 5am (local Cyprus time) she arrived in Cyprus and 1st mention of a TV filming takes place at 6am, as far as I can tell earliest arrival into Larnaca International with a possible connection from Lilongwe would have been at 8am via Addis Ababa on Ethiopian Airlines/Cyprus Airways. And for going from Majorca (Palma) to Larnaca it takes at least 3 connecting flights... even if she mentions either "like 7 stops" or "like 7 hr delay"... she would have been arriving from Munich at 1:50am; things are beginning not to match at all.

I had a few minutes finally to go back and look more carefully at the Facebook entry I posted earlier. Here is the entire string:

Nicosia in afternoon, magdalena, you should come.
20 hours ago

This picture link didn't work earlier but does now and is a random looking scene with no apparent TAR content that I can see. there is a side view of a box in the foreground but it's not a TAR clue box.

RECENT ACTIVITY

    Name removed likes ROYIATIKO HOTEL, NICOSIA and 3 other pages.

This last bit really kills this for me:

Name removed has blown a kiss at Name removed back in June 2008.

The second name was the same as the faker from Singapore last night.

Someone appears to have started trying to set us up about 20 hours ago (my two sightings and Xarles' one tonight), so I'd take any sighting in Cyprus with suspicion at this point.

Can someone explain to me what for a Sichuan-native-Chinese-masseuse-who-lives-in-Athens-and-flies-from-Majorca-into-Nicosia-with-two-connections-in-a-Mediterranean-tour, follows 30 people which are mostly news, art, business media and personalities mainly from the US and UK? And why should I be paying attention?

Good work guys!! For whatever reason, someone wants us to believe Cyprus. :groan:

Malawi info re departure today...everything else has been reliable, I am sticking with this for now.

If you take the words one by one they do translate as yellow race box but the whole phrase it's not grammatically correct in Greek. It's obvious to me that someone just did a crappy job in translating the English phrase to Greek and just copied pasted.
Also the majority of people in Greece and Cyprus when texting or using the net they write in Greeklish, that is greek words with english letters and a few english words in between.

Coming from China, the confusion about the Sichuan native following people from the US and UK doesn't make sense to me. QQ is basically the Chinese version of Twitter...

What confuses me more is the fact that they are using Twitter. It's blocked in China so they wouldn't really be able to communicate with friends that way... Then again, this could be an explanation for them following so little other Chinese.

Just something that makes the person seem less reliable to me.

I found a blog post that may or may not refer to TAR's visit to Taiwan. It looks like they google translated the original Chinese and posted the English that came out. It doesn't make sense but it specifically mentions TAR and some locations that possibly could have been used. However, it's also got references to marriage and "daughter seek Diamond" that make no sense to me. Maybe it will make sense to some of our Chinese fluent members. I tried to find a Chinese version on that page and couldn't find one.

This tweet is realizable by the following sequence:

Take flight ET 871 leaving at 3:05 pm and arriving at Addis Ababa ADD at 7:45 pm
Take flight ET 600 leaving at 10:15 pm and arriving at Dubai DXB at 3:00 am
Take flight Jat Airways JU 89 leaving at 7:25 am and arriving at Larnaca LCA at 10:15 am

Taxi 25 miles to Nicosia

The tweet was made at about 1:45 am Pacific time which converts to 1145 am in Nicosia.   :tup:
