Here are a few photos I took last week in Cyprus.



Motorway A1 Nicosia–Limassol:




The highest speed allowed in Cyprus is just 100 km/h:










I never knew there were camels in Cyprus!





And a few photos from the Turkish part.

Highway Famagusta–Nicosia:




The highest speed allowed is 100 km/h in the Turkish part as well:


The road across the Karpass Peninsula is excellent, with almost no traffic, but the last part is quite bumpy:


That's all, I hope you liked it.

I did not know Cyprus was still using the British way of driving.

drive on left is not a British way of driving. For a start, the Romans did it. And it's not as if Indonesia or Japan were British colonies.

A great many countries drove on the left then swapped for pragmatic reasons / conquest (some in southern Africa and the south Pacific have swapped the other way in recent decades for pragmatic reasons). Sweden only changed in the 1960s, having avoided a change-over due to avoiding an invasion by a drive-on-right empire - unlike the nearby counties. And Malta (like Jersey and Guernsey - and, decades later, the Falklands) swapped back after the invasion ended: as islands, the pragmatic reasons for staying that was deminished due to being islands.

OK, it is a legacy from the Brits. How did then Boudica do it ?
