**I made this video 2.5 years ago, but only shared it to Facebook…so I wanted to post it for all you guys here on YouTube! Please excuse the fast paced editing and shaky camera — I was a newbie back then**
CYPRUS is a very interesting country, with a diverse history, and one that isn’t often talked about on a global scale.
Did you know that since 1974, Cyprus has been split by a thick-walled border into two sides, the South (Greek) and the North (Turkish)? The capital city, Nicosia, is the only capital in the world to be in two continents, and it’s bizarre how the culture drastically changes when you step over a border within the same city.
My goal in making this video is to educate you on the history of Cyprus, as well as share my unbiased opinions as I visit both the Greek & Turkish sides of the island.
Please refrain from starting a Greek vs. Cyprus political debate. That’s not what this video is about. Any rude/nasty comments will be deleted.
This video was NOT easy to make.. it took me 2 hours just to find a place to say the opening lines… Police on every corner stopped me from taking photos around the walled border. And it was SO hot outside that I almost passed out.. but it was all worth it!!
