Choppers buzzing overhead all day Cap… three here, four there… it never ends.

Living just a few KM down the Lacatamia airport, is a very noisy affair every 1st of October.

You would probably love it here. :)

...sadly, our Leadership has taken to representing their electorate as ''Greeks'', or as ''Turks'', rather than, as Cypriots. And yet among the public, "Cypriots" are not so hard to find it seems.

...across the whole island, on such a day, the People may remember their power, no longer silent in exposing "them", by standing together in solidarity for and under that Flag rightfully theirs, The Flag of Cyprus. Indeed, i am asking, who treats this Flag, as a rag?

...and on this day let us also solemnly remember the murdered and the disappeared, "their" victims; who for the most part were killed for "being" Cypriot instead.

...it is not a happy day, but i am hopeful, and i do not forget.

We went to the top of that. Looking down I said to Mrs LR "OMG! Look. There's a fire somewhere. :shock: “ She replies "That's not smoke. It's clouds :roll: " :lol:

Independence day of course. Of course the UAE does it with other countries too.
It's what I've tried to explain to Kuru long ago.

Officiality trumps everything.
The Republic of Cyprus is officially recognized by everyone save for T***ey'
