Morning in Girne Cyprus in 2002

The boat I was on is tied up right behind the large wood boat. We are the third one from the dock. Click photo to enlarge.

Girne is a city that has been continuously inhabited for at least 6,000 years. There’s some pretty old stuff there. It’s in Turkish Cyprus and you can’t get to it from Southern (Greek) Cyprus. You must go through Turkey. There is a no man’s land between the two that if full of shot up buildings. If you ventured into that area you’d be shot by one side or the other. Here are some children playing right on the edge of that zone.

Two photos of the no-man’s zone, taken by me in 2002 from a firing position on the Turkish side in the 1974 war:
