The Independence's Year:



It is an island of the Mediterranean offshore Syria and Turkey, therefore geographically it belongs to Asia. It is the island of Venus, that has risen from the sea along the south coasts, between Limassol and Paphos.
It is a beautiful place, surrounded by an entire sea; crossed by two mountainous chains; studded of simple seaside and mountain resort.
Unfortunately the scandal of the subdivision in two entities, among the part to Greek majority to south and the part occupied by the Turks to north, it is a very ugly thing and for now of difficulty solution.
Certainly to see the barriers of division for the roads of Nicosia is a thing that hurts and of complete absurdity!
