Cyprus, III

Except the appearance of cats there was a clear difference between both sides. It seems like not much has changed since 1974 on the Northern part of Nicosia, or Lefkosa (how it is called on the other side), but that might be understandable if one considers the fact that there is an embargo, which seems to be more or less kept except by Turkey and some other countries. The more I left the border the better the area became. Casinos and expensive cars all over the place. I was told that this area is very popular for criminals, because were officially no state, there no law. The embargo has also some “funny sides” (no embargo is funny per definition, but I didn’t know how to put it). Officially the area has to be boycotted, but on the other hand there is a market so famous companies have to operate under different names (that’s what I was told, I have no proof for that), so that might explain the pictures at the end
