Running around Boarders: Cyprus

The boarder between Lebanon and Israel is closed. This means, despite seeing Israel from Lebanon twice, no one is allowed to cross between the countries directly by land, air, or sea. Essentially, they pretend the other doesn't exist. Fair enough after all the war between the two. In fact, if the Lebanese can prove you have ever been to Israel, they can (and will) deny you entry (with maybe a few exceptions like specialists from the country or celebrities or something).

Luckily, its quite easy to go to Israel without proof. So the piggies decided to fly to Cyprus after Lebanon and connect from there. But of course, why go and not see the area?

Two days in Larnaca. They stayed with a man who was interesting to say the least, but that's a different story entirely.
He drove them around the island quite a bit to some very lovely looking sites:
Laranca is very much a resort city

this man was the highlight of the trip. He owns a restaurant in Cyprus in the mountains and showed me all the antiques decorating the walls from his grandmother. This was one of his favorites.

Cyprus is nice. But it's very much a "vacation," "holiday" destination. Good for families, groups of friends, or couples. For solo-traveling pigs, other destinations seemed more interesting. Such a active war zones!! Israel during the war next up!!
