i spent less than a week in cyprus, but i managed to see a lot on the small and beautiful island. the north and south were more different than i could have imagined, both politically and economically. i don't know enough about the political situation to draw any real conclusions, i can only present what i experienced: it was easy to forget there was any problem at all in the north, where i enjoyed the same language, food, and hospitality that i'm spoiled with in turkey; in contrast, the political conflict remains very present for greek cypriots in the south, who continue to lament the turkish occupation. pictures of "the missing," and signs documenting past and present injustices are ubiquitous at the southern checkpoints and capital.
