"...if you want to visit the village of Kormakitis, there is no problem. If you just show your identity card you can pass the Turkish Border site and visit all the places there. I would suggest to you, to go to my village Kormakitis. Kormakitis is the only place the Cypriots did not leave after the war of 1974. I stayed there for a period of time, but because there was no job, we moved here to Nicosia. Today whenever we want, we can visit our village and stay in our houses."

"The biggest shock for us was when the border reopened after 30 years," said Mavrides. "We hadn't just left behind us a house but a whole way of life."
