Today we went to Famagusta. It is a city divided on Cyprus' east coast. In 1974, the Turks invaded and took control of the city. What is left behind is in the Greek quarter is a lot of building that gone into disrepair. We took in this ancient city that surrounded by a wall and contains many old buildings. Some churches have been converted to mosques.

The ride by dolbus to Famagusta over the mountains is very beautiful. It took about an hour from Kyrenia. I took a video of the return trip through this lovely area. I'll post it to You Tube when I have the time.

Lots of pictures in my Picasa web site.
