Cypriot leaders are truly hardcore

Cyprus Mail reports:

Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu has invited president Nicos Anastasiades to attend the Deep Purple concert in the north together, as part of the confidence building measures.

Now we are talking! Two hours of head banging together will do more to united Cyprus than the last 40 years of talking.

The Yale Globalist team visits Cyprus

The Yale Globalist is a magazine written, edited, and published by the students of Yale University.  The topics are chosen by the students as well, and often cover politics, economy, culture, science, technology, and more.  Every years, the team does a field trip to a particular country, where they meet with locals and get better understanding of the country and the people.

This year, the team is researching Turkey.  As part of that research, they are also visiting Cyprus.  They are arriving tonight and will spend a week on the island.  They are looking for people to talk to about the Cyprus problem, support and opposition of the unification plans, occupation and the aftermath of the military conflict, religious differences, and more.

If you are interested, have a look at their web site, as well as their Turkey travel blog.  They also have a page on Facebook.  If you have something to say, get in contact with the team and they will arrange for the time to meet with you.  You can email the Editor in Chief Sanjena Sathian directly at sanjena [dot] sathian [at] yale [dot] edu.
