My son in Famagusta, an area of Cyprus that was invaded by the Turkish army in 1974. It’s a fascinating, apocalyptic place to visit.

It’s got to be spring for the optimism, new growth and overall feeling of renewal.
I’m a fan of Turkish funk music, pseudoscientific theorist Graham Hancock and the American stand-up comedian Joe Rogan. Plus I love animal folklore podcasts.
