I will skip the actual travel from the States to Cyprus portion for now, although that was interesting on its own. Let's start at km 2, just outside of the airport in Larnaca. Here's a map for reference:

6 of us traveled together, but split up at the airport to ourown seperate rides. My mini family consisted of JD and his ho LB. It didn't take JD very long to get used to driving on the left hand side of the road, as he has had to do it before. Our welcome to Cyprus consisted of a very barren, arid landscape and a crazy techno song. All signs pointed to this being a crazy bt fun trip. JD, LB and I traveled north about 45 minutes to the capital city of Lefkosia (Nicosia). Every city in Cyprus has 2 names, and no distinguishable difference of when to use one or the other. We arrived int he capital city to find absolutley no street signs for the names of the streets, none that we could see anyway. After very little confusion we found our beautiful hotel, the Hilton Park. Thank God for JD because he made all the arrangements and this place was incredibly nice. Nothing like a hot shower and a soft bed after 24 hours of straight travel either in an aiport or aboard a plane. After a hot shower and a re-application of extra strength Gold Bond, we hit the town for some eats. The city was beautiful with narrow cobble stone streets and friendly people. We found an incredible restaruant Il Forno. An Italian place but the food was amazing. We all got our own perosnal pizzas, KEO beer and people watched as we dined in the semi open air on the main walking thoro-fare. The peole watching was great especially when the girl behind us in the skirt that was a big as a wrist band was pratically getting humped at the table by her boyfriend. We checked out the old city a little bit and planned our next day which would consist of touring Lefkosia for the first half of the day and then trekking through the Troodos Mountains to or next stop...
