A Mediterranean Island situated south of Turkey. Inhabited by mainly Cypriots, the Island has been divided since 1974 by completely racist Greeks who wanted Cyprus to unite with Greece and by fascist Turks who invaded the North of the country to protect the Turkish community. Neither side of the argument is without fault, but it cannot be denied that Cyprus is a beautiful country. Before joining the European Union the south of Cyprus was a large tourist destination and locations such as Ayia Napa were very popular among Brits. But typically the Greeks shot themselves in the foot again and put up all the prices, scaring aware their huge tourist industry. Fortunately the north of the Island has not been ruined by the Turkish population but is still not a major tourist destination as the occupation is recognised by the UN to be illegal. Maybe one day Turkey will realise that woman are people too, and maybe the Greeks of Cyprus will realise that the Turks have always lived amongst them and that Greece is rubbish.
NB: The food is the best in the world.
Brit 1: Hey wanna go Cyprus this year?
Brit 2: Nah, its way too expensive now.
Brit 1: Why don't we go to the North then?
Brit 2: I don't like Turks, they're sexist.
Brit 1: Ok we can let them sort their shit out, we'll just go Spain again.
