It is Monday and like always I will update you with the weather! Before I start with the weather forecast , I will like to refer in our Cyprus history. Today is not any Monday , but in 15th of July in 1974 at 08:30 in the morning was the first INVASION from Turkey.
The Turkish invasion is name by Turkey as an operation Attila. Around 150.000 Greek Cypriot re allocated and lost their houses and land after the invasion. My mother is refugee and she has missing brother my uncle Vironas Adamou that we have never met. It is important to mentioned that Greek Cypriots they thought that they are going to return to their houses and they didn’t took anything with them.
If you would like to see a video regarding our history here it is is only 26 minutes in English
Some useful information and correct vocabulary when we refer to Cyprus please.
- Don’t use please Turkish Site but use occupied area.
- Don’t use please word such as I pass the border but I pass the check point.
Here is nice video in Greek Language: Video is from the facebook page Η Κύπρος του Χθες.
Analyzing our geographical position briefly:
- Cyprus is situated in the middle of the ancient world (Syria, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, Greece and Crete). For this reason the island accepted many different cultures. So it is not surprising that Cyprus has experienced a very ancient culture.
- The geographical position of Cyprus between the three continents of Europe, Asia and Africa helps the island to develop trade and tourism relations with countries in these continents.
I always recommend to tourist if they want to be safe then they need to have holidays in the recognized Republic of Cyprus not in North occupied side! Your embassy and British base will always protect you! Don’t be afraid of coming in Paradise! 🤗🤗♥️❤️💙
