That’s a good summary of the political sphere and history in Cyprus! I’m into history and documentaries too. It’s great fun.
Agreed. Still, it is funny the things that stick in your head. If you are Cypriot it is not that unusual that you would know these kinds of things.Yet I would be willing to bet that you could not swing a dead cat on a crowded street corner in the USA and hit one person who would know anything about Cyprus. Unless of course you hit me.Still, I agree. Lots of fun. Thanks for the "thumbs up" too.
My dad’s family is originally from Nicosia. I’m not 100% Cypriot. I didn’t grow up there, but I do know enough about it and I visited a few times, even lived there for a few months thinking I’d stay forever but eventually didn’t. I’m glad you know this much about Cyprus. As small as Cyprus is, it has such rich history and traditions.
Yes. In fact, it was on my target list to visit at some point - I have visited 38 countries to date. However, the combination of family and pandemics has put that off for a bit.Sooner or later, though, I plan to visit.
Hope you get to soon!
You’re right! That’s a very specific question about an Island that’s lost in the middle of earth. It’s exactly why I asked the question; to see if enough people have an idea about Cyprus/Cypriots. You described Cyprus beautifully though.
Thanks for linking this here. I’ll watch it sometime soon. I’ve never heard of this channel but looks interesting!
Thank you for the MHGirl.
You know someone from Cyprus? Well, at least you formed a good image.

I mean you’re not wrong but that applies to all that area.
I’m not sure if Crete has that too but Cyprus does have a reusable water supply.
Ethnically yeah, but I wouldn’t say they’re 100% the same.
They’re half Greek half Turkish
The never-ending conflict
What’s your favorite?
What war exactly?
Civil war, Turkish invasion
Because I’m getting it mixed up with the Island of Crete. Cypress is more of the half way point between Europe and Africa isn’t it, so that where a lot of sailor would stop to restock there supplies.
I’m probably now going to have to relook at Greek history.
Yeah you’re right. Cyprus had it fair share of violence. The location is why most probably.
Yea it’s right in the middle of the mediterranean it’s the half way point between Spain Italy Egypt turkey etc so a lot of people stopped there to resupply. Also from what I understand it was kind of the neutral point of course you’d still have fist fight beyond that if I remember right it was mostly peaceful. Unlike the riots in 2020
Half is Turkish, other is Greek
