To North Cyprus

At 6 AM builders close by woke me. Try to get some more sleep. Later planned the day. Around 9 am I went to beach to jump in sea. On my way there saw church, mosque and castle. In shop spent 3 €. Returned at 10 to hotel

Got some more sleep, packed and left hotel in the after noon. Another walk in town. Went for lunch in Ocean basket, Tina’s recomendation. Ordered plate for 1 person and a beer, with tip I paid 24 €. Meal was mixture of sea food, tasty and big portion. There were prawns, fish, calamri, clams, rice and fries with 3 different sauces. Maybe fish was weakest part.

Sea food

Walked back to the car. First stop was Hala Sultan tekke on salty lake with flamengos. Spent 50 € at gas station. From there I drove to border close to Famagusta. Parked 1 km before border, walked across and there took taxi 9 € to Varosha (Maras) ghoast town. While waited for taxi had a beer, 1.6 € beer. Walking among ruins was sad experience of city in decay. Then again I took taxi to Famagusta, 3€. Walk to Citadel wall with great views. Close to mosque in main square live performace, another beer 2.7 €. Bought cigarettes for 1.9 €. Last taxi back to border. But in confusion he took me to wrong border. After some arguing- we turned around, 19 €.

Walking across border to car and driving to Nicosia. I had some problems with signal and GPS. I was staying in Nex hostel, 17 €. Again some problems with bed reservation, but they solved it. Also parking was a challenge. After shower I sat on sofa and wrote this.
