The plan for the students on day 4 of our Comenius Cyprus trip was a guided tour of Nicosia, taking in important points of interest in and around the old city. We visited old Churches and national history museums and the ‘buffer’ zone and border with Turkish occupied Northern Cyprus. Unfortunately the group did not cross the border into Northern Cyprus.
After touring Nicosia for most of the morning, the students were given a little free time to have a drink, shop and browse Nicosia in their own social groups. After this, the students returned to school and their host families as this took them to the end of the Cypriot school day.
In a few hours, the school will hold a party for the students, host families and staff. I will update this blog with a few photos later on this evening, after the party. (Updated)
