Hi John. Icemen retired and passed on his air conditioning and refrigeration business to his son. I was invited for a BBQ on my visit to Cyprus a few months back. He uses me as his buyer and courier for all his purchases for his Nikon camera. Just last week I sent him a slave flash.

The Nikon with the lens and filters is worth about 10K. Apart from his love of Dobermans he loves taking pictures of the WRC. He takes pictures of rally cars in action in all the European events, including the Cyprus leg and sells the pictures as well as making calendars and selling those too. He is a nice chap and a loyal friend.

Come on Sotos, liven up for fucks sake. We are Cypriots and happen to be living in the north of the island. Circumstances dictate this in the present political state the island is in. One day it will be a reunited island and north and south will not even be mentioned. Why are you so hell bent on living in denial?


"North Cypriot" implies some kind of ancestral connection specifically with the north part of Cyprus, and not merely current residency. The correct term is "Turkish Cypriot".

Cap naively believes that Turkish Cypriots will stop being Turkish if he doesn't call them Turkish, and he doesn't realize that the term "North Cypriot" actually benefits the partitionists.
