Yesterday, the first day of Easter Break, we went to the north to Kyrenia. Tinashe, who is from Zimbabwe, went with us. It was his first trip out of Nicosia since he arrived in October. The castle/fortress in Kyrenia is pretty cool. Everybody was impressed by the dungeon with its graphic display of torture methods and true stories of who was imprisoned there. There is also the remnants of the hull and cargo of a 2300 year old ship that was taken off the floor of the Mediterranean. The castle/fortress is a great example of the architecture, etc of the various occupying forces that have been in Cyprus.
