Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them.
(David Hume)

[…] It was not so easy to cross the border between Northern and Southern Cyprus, between the Turkish and Greek sides, as a matter of fact, I found fences and military stations that were suitable for a war zone. And indeed by mistake I found myself in a sort of corridor on a dirt road that led to an entrance that I thought I could cross simply by showing my European passport. Instead, immediately afterwards two soldiers ordered me to stop my march to identify myself, assuming I was a soldier and looking quite alarmed by my presence there.  […]

The rich snack organized by my brothers Jaskaran and Ali, an Indian and a Pakistani who after barely ten minutes that we met in the center of Nicosia hosted me for the night and offered me some food. They really showed me solidarity, not simply a feeling of superficial compassion for the needs of another, but a concrete and decisive determination to commit to the good of others, this my new Cyprus friends had done without hesitation.
