Larnaca

We’ve been in Larnaca for a couple of weeks now, it’s good spending time with mum and dad, the cats, friends, supporters, etc.

Not so good are the mozzie bites. I’m being rather eaten – if it’s not mozzies, it’s some other kind of wee beastie of the “eating daniel” variety.

We’ve been spending a lot of time reading, resting, and meeting people.

And playing a LOT of Settlers of Catan, probably the best board game around.

Avoid Sudoku!

I hardly ever do Sudoku.

But occasionally I fall into temptation, and picked up the following problem:


[4][ ][ ] [ ][ ][3] [ ][9][ ]
[5][1][ ] [ ][4][8] [ ][2][7]
[ ][2][ ] [ ][9][ ] [ ][8][ ]

[ ][4][ ] [3][7][ ] [2][ ][ ]
[7][ ][2] [ ][8][ ] [9][ ][ ]
[ ][ ][6] [ ][1][ ] [ ][5][3]

[ ][ ][7] [8][6][ ] [4][ ][9]
[9][6][ ] [ ][ ][7] [ ][ ][2]
[ ][ ][4] [ ][ ][1] [ ][7][ ]

Apparently DEAD EASY to do. It took me about 2 minutes.

Except the last 4 squares, which are impossible.

I’m almost annoyed enough to almost go learn what the rules for making a sudoku are, and find out which one this particular sudoku has broken.

Grr.
