    Ledra Street

    This is a very famous street in the capital, Nicosia, not only because it is littered with small restaurants and lots of shopping opportunities, but also because it leads straight to the crossing point between the Greek and the Occupied sides of the island.   You can spend an entire day out on this one little street, starting from one end and working your way to the other, going through a handful of delicious little restaurants and shisha places to spend time sampling their wares at.

    My day out in Old Nicosia

    Today started with me getting up at around 7am to get ready for the day ahead. I packed and had breakfast, and then I walked to the beach to grab the intercity bus to Nicosia. The bus left at 9am and we arrived sometime around 10:20. I then took a city bus towards the apartment I rented and had to look a bit to find the right street. The landlady showed me the studio; it was quite small but had everything I needed, and by everything I mean air conditioning. Nicosia is not on the coast and is even hotter, at around 38 degrees Celsius; air condition is a must have.  It took me about 20 minutes to get into the old city by foot and I needed a while to orient myself...
