Hello to all kind of life forms and Welcome to My Page
I am Wakko.I'm here to tell you about Cyprus,George's
country. Cyprus is a small island in the Eastern mediterranean sea,near
Greece.The inhabitants,Greek and Turkish Cypriots used to live together
in peace and friendship under one recognised state.However the brutal Turkish
invasion of 1974 forced the division of the island in two parts:the
south part,known as the Republic of Cyprus,ruled by the legal government,
and the north part which is occupied by the turkish troops. GreekCypriots,about
700,000,live in the free parts whereas the occupied land is filled with
turks brought from Turkey since more and more TurkishCypriots immigrate.The
language spoken is Greek and the main religion is Orthodox Christianity.
The currency used is the Cyprus Pound.
I'm Yakko.I'll tell you about himself.Currently,
he's 20 years old.He finished school in Acropolis Lyceum where he graduated
in June 97.He served National Guard,Cyprus' military force,as a cadet officer
for a compulsory 26 months period,and was released in September 99 in the
rank of sub-lieutenant.Now you'll find him studying mathematics(admitetly,a
passion for him) at UMIST,Manchester.His home is in Strovolos,a suburb
of Lefkosia (former Nicosia),the capital of the island which has
the disadvantage of being the only separated capital left in the world,since
the Turkish invasion.
I'm Dot.I will speak of his interests.Apart from
spending some time with his computer (mostly for recreation) he loves playing
basketball,reading magazines, playing chess and backgammon and collecting
souvenirs from around the world and comics (Disney ones and Asterix are
his favourite)He enjoys watching basketball and footbal matches as
well as,despite his age,cartoons.He never says no to a good book and relaxes
by listening to music and sometimes drawing.He likes classical and instrumental
music as well as pop & rock songs(both greek and english).He once took
up electronic piano lessons so that he could fulfill his musical instincts.However,
he's still an amateur,but he never gives up.He created his own comic character,"Trumpy
jr."(shortly to be online),and he looks forward to the day he'll create
a Donald Duck story. You'll find him on the net by the nick "Ageras".Boy,he's
This is the flag of Olympiakos Pireus known
as "Thrylos"(Legend).He used to call it the best basketball team in Europe.Now
left with very few greek players,he prefers to call it a "circus".However
the club's football team is doing pretty good, for the joy of the fans.
Well,That's all folks. If you want more,go to the second
