Hydrocarbons Are A Prerogative of a Cyprus Federation - UN

barton eide cyprusUN Special Advisor Barth Eide said that after his talks with all sides, it is clear that hydrocarbons are a prerogative of a future Cyprus federation state, and that he is working hard to bring the Greek-and-Turkish Cypriots back to the negotiating table.

The envoy said it is too early to comment on a formula for the negotiations on hydrocarbons, and that his main message is that both leaders “ agree that hydrocarbons will be a part of the shared future of a united Cyprus and it will be a federal level competence."

The beauty of Austrians, their cakes, their photography

Sunday’s event was created ‘on a whim’ when a fellow Austrian told me she wanted to launch her photography business Conny Kasparis Photgraphy specializing in people photography and natural portraits. We came up with a ‘plan’ right there and then. She was only free on Sundays, we both like baking Austrian cakes...

Astrology and pumpkins for Halloween

What an amazing variety of events we got to enjoy this weekend - and yes, I do mean ‘we’ as several guests actually attended two events and one couple even all three - an introduction to astrology, a cocktail party and clothes shopping and an Austrian coffee and cake afternoon with a free portrait.  That’s in part thanks to my new home - super spacious and yet cosy. So perfect – people feel right at home!
We thus kicked off the weekend with Friday’s Introduction to Astrology with Al Davidian - an event which had seen quite a few bookings from the very beginning  - it appears to be a topic that continuous to have many wonder about how it actually ‘works’. So much so, that despite the early 7:30 start, everybody was right on time and literally jumped for a spot on my big couches the moment I suggested we settled down.

When Will Turkey Drag Itself Into The 21st Century?

I just read an article published on Anadolu state 'news' agency that made me realise Turkey is even further behind the times than I thought. The article is about the quarrel over oil-and-gas exploration in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea around Cyprus, and says that Turkey hasn't declared an Exclusive Economic Zone because 'of the Aegean'.
