bigOz wrote:I say "make all drugs legal" - that will bring the price and the attraction for international dealers. But that would be too easy - what about hundreds of thousands of policemen, customs officers and prison wardens all over the world IN EVERY COUNTRY who are helping many big dealers in turn for filling up their pockets? AND where would the revenue come from for illegal arms purchases, without the billions of Euros / dollars earned from drugs

I do not care for the land at this time but I would love to see the village again - I used to spend 3 months at a time there during my summer holidays when very young. There was no elctricity or asphalt roads then, but for a child it was a very exciting experience. What a beautiful area of Cyprus that region is - I really miss it!

I was going to do it last year but I had no idea what the reception of a (former owner) TC would be in the village. Maybe I should just keep quiet about being from there and go as a normal visitor. My cousin visited 2 years ago and apparently the villagers showed no animosity but were very nice to them. I know from old days that TCs and GCs in that region always worked in harmony and traded with each other with no problems throughout the 60s and 70s - albeit mostly in their own villages. There were even many mixed marriages in the area
