  • If you mean "Tiny Cyprus," @random_cypriot, Yes... These poor people woke up one morning and like Greece... Got robbed of their bank accounts.
    I also have read that it is beautiful there... Hope they are all doing better. xx

  • Yes I have. I do live in Europe so I would assume everyone in Europe has heard of it. I've never been there though. I'm surprised people haven't heard of it.

  • Yup... its sort of on the map... and wrapped up in all sorts of history... and sporting events.

    IIRC Richard I (of England) nabbed the island on his way to the crusades (and wasn't his neglected misses a cypriot?).. So you've been part of the Byzantine Empire, the Angevine Empire, Holly Roman Empire, Ottoman Empire, and British Empire.

    ... And I know several people who were stationed over there when Greece and Turkey were squabling over it.
