Three things I learnt in Cyprus
1. Don´t ask for a Turkish Coffee when you´re in Cyprus. At least I got to learn this one by proxy, after a fellow journo made the gaffe.
2. Russia is going to be a superpower again, if she´s not already… Learnt this from a Russian colleague on the press junket with me. She didn´t say so, in as many words. But I drew my own conclusions.
3. Courtesy of Greek mythology: if you think your dearly beloved has died, don´t kill yourself. They are probably still alive (if not kicking). The only reason they don´t run into your arms as expected is because
they´re too busy hiding behind a rock or summat.
