From Alison:
A woman who went to the same college I did is walking along the buffer zone in Cyprus, taking photos, and adding daily blog posts about her experiences. She just put her first post up today. The link is: http://kateincolor.wordpress.com/.
[Note: only the first three photos are Cyprus. The rest of them are Walajeh and Jerusalem.]

Our song: Golden Green Leaf(Χρυσοπράσινο Φύλλο = Chrysoprásino fyllo)
Poetry by Leonidas Malenis; Music by Mikis Theodorakis

Land of the lemon tree, of the olive tree
Land of the embrace, of the joy
Land of the pine tree, of the cypress tree,
of the young lads, of love

Green-golden leaf thrown into the sea

Land of the dry field
Land of the sad Virgin Mary
Land of the hot wind, of the unjustified loss,
of the wild weather, of the volcanoes

Green-golden leaf thrown into the sea

Land of the girls who laugh
Land of the boys who get drunk
Land of the myrtle, of the greeting
Cyprus of love and of the dreams

Green-golden leaf thrown into the sea
Γη της λεμονιάς, της ελιάς
γη της αγκαλιάς, της χαράς
γη του πεύκου, του κυπαρισσιού
των παλικαριών και της αγάπης

Χρυσοπράσινο φύλλο ριγμένο στο πέλαγο

Γη του ξεραμένου λιβαδιού
γη της πικραμένης Παναγιάς
γη του λίβα, τ' άδικου χαμού
τ' άγριου καιρού, των ηφαιστείων

Χρυσοπράσινο φύλλο ριγμένο στο πέλαγο

Γη των κοριτσιών που γελούν
γη των αγοριών που μεθούν
γη του μύρου, του χαιρετισμού
Κύπρος της αγάπης και του ονείρου

Χρυσοπράσινο φύλλο ριγμένο στο πέλαγο
