cyprus 5: abandoned places

Filed under: travel outside greece — Tags: , — cohn17 @ 4:23 pm

we came across a few abandoned villages during our drive through southern cyprus. sometimes, a village has been abandoned because an earthquake or water problem rendered it unlivable; however, it may be the case that a village was abandoned because it had been a turkish-cypriot village before the turkish invasion, and the residents left it for safety in the north.
