During my travels in Cyprus I had the chance to sail across Ammohostos Bay,  up to the sea line bordering the occupied waters of Cyprus. We reached the Eastern coast of Famagusta which was once one of the most glamorous resorts in the Mediterranean. After July 1974, the glamorous tourist resort has become “the ghost town” and is heavily guarded by soldiers, while aggressive signs make it clear that this is a no-go zone. There is plenty of anger about this situation, but also sadness. The greatest sadness, of course, is that tens of thousands of people have lost everything they had.

According to our tourist quide, Famagusta is known to the Greeks as Ammohostos, meaning “buried in the sand”. I hope that the Cyprus issue will not meet this fate. 

Although my travels in Cyprus is one of my greatest life memories, I  will always recall it with simmered bitterness and grief.  🙁

      Nations, like fashion, has its history and interpretation. Regretably the occupied area of today’s Cyprus is a “fashion nightmare” 😉
