Bir, I thought it was 'one is only as old as the woman he feels'. :)

Happy Birthday Deniz!!!!



Thanks Kafenes, I nearly gave up on you. :lol: :lol:


Gave up??? what do you mean??



I tought we were on a head on clash :lol: :lol: Never mind :wink:


No my friend, I only take this forum light heatedly. Any relation of my friend Bir is a friend of mine, I guess that includes Zan as well. :)



I'd like to think we were friends before the discovery of my yegens :lol: :lol:


Deniz, for me, meeting people face to face is very important regardless of there political views. As much as I would call you a friend I would like to meet you in flesh one day to officially seal our friendship.


I can't wait to hear you sing Kafenes. I like people with a talent. I also wish I had the nerve to do something like that.

It's no great deal Zan. I am lucky to have been blessed with a voice which people like to hear. From then on it's a matter of experience. Hope one day we will all sit around a table, eat, drink and sing together.

First of all,one great big thank you to QUATTRO,for digging this up for me to read.

Read your story with great joy Bir abi,by being glued to my chair.

May I also add that,I too spent 10 years of my life in Guru Chesme (dry tap),after 74,and first time I visited(a few weeks ago,on my to my first appearence at Buyuk Han) to find it being accupied by garasakals and in ruins.Can't do nothing since we were only renting it since my father had refused the house we were given as opposed to our demolished one in 63,saying 'not yours to give it to me'.

Thank you for your time.

You are most welcome,dear yorgozlu...
It was as painful as it was pleasurable for me to write it at the time...
I am glad it is still reaching some people!

What is happening in the old Nicosia (surlar ici) section is a tragedy of multiple dimensions...History will not be kind to those who are responsible for this...

It has been allowed to turn into a ghetto inhabited by the settlers.People who have no understanding of the historical and cultural significance of the place for TCs...Hence all the sights ,sounds ,and smells so cherished by the TCs have all but disappeared... :(

Thanks for that Bir, never been in to the occupied part of central Nic, but have visited the other side of Nic's central area many times and wandered around that part. As you will know a very pop shopping area, with bars and cafes as well. Architecturally, very interesting imho, at least by CY standards. Enjoy just wandering down Ledras St and thereabouts and looking up at the buildings above the usual bland, cosmopolitan, plate glass shop-fronts, at a kind of colonial era style of building, buildings of dressed stone blocks (limestone I believe) with details and small balconies. (won't mention what think are bullet holes).
