Check out my friend @Johnny Harris first story about this conflict here:

Check out @Nathaniel Drew ‘s Channel who joined us on this trip as well.

This was probably one of the most complicated stories we've ever had to tell. For my Cypriots watching, I wish you peace and prosperity for the future. I hope you enjoyed this piece and understand that not every single detail of the story could be highlighted. I could've spent hours going into all of the intricacies of this conflict and tried to stay balance and unbiased as I simply came an observer.

Varosha is one of the largest and most tragic ghost towns on the planet. Once filled with tens of thousands of tourists every year it's been abandoned now for about 47 years... The conflict in Cyprus is far from being resolved and unfortunately is growing in complexity as the years go by. Sending hope and positivity to all the Cypriots out there, thank you for hosting me in your country.

This is probably one of the most sensitive conflict zones in the world at the moment and I did my best telling a high-level version of the story that still stays fair and discusses the major events. There are endless more elements that would have to be mentioned for the whole conflict to be understood, so I highly recommend you dive deeper into this if you are interested in fully comprehending it. I honestly was ignorant to how sensitive things still were when I arrived and I'm glad I changed that by getting to hear real stories from people in the Yes Fam. It was pretty surreal driving across this de-facto border and hearing the tragic stories on both sides. I just hope that Cyprus and Cypriots will one day find peace and a prosperous future.

Thank you for doing this. Not many people know about the story and you told it very well and open minded. I was born in England and have lived here for ever but my family is Greek Cypriot. We go to Cyprus when we can and I used to be very angry and Blame it all on turkey. Now I don’t care about that. It’s the people that matter and I ask my grandparents questions about the past. They remember living together with the Turkish Cypriots and it being fine. They just want unity. Most people from Cyprus want peace and unity and we have to remember that. This isn’t about the people vs the people, it’s the governments that we don’t have control over. My grandad lived in the north. He was born there and grew up there. It was either before the war or during that they both moved to England. They didn’t know eachother, they actually met in England. A lot of Cypriot people moved to England and there is a big community in north London. They have many stories and I wish I knew everything. They now spend their time in Cyprus and England. Right now they are in Cyprus and they don’t want to come back for Christmas 😭

Why did the Turkish decide they could take the city after all of these years? Why has the UN not retaliated? Are Green Zones anyone's to take? I am trying to understand, as I am still trying to understand the conflict.

I had a few questions for you guys starting with, When and how did you discover you wanted to travel for your job? What is one of your favorite places you have been to? What is your favorite and least favorite part of this industry? I hope you guys see this and are able to respond! Thanks!!!

As soon as I saw the Turkish flag & the timeline, I knew you were talking about Cyprus & the Turks & Greeks which is like one of the oldest rivalries dating back to the ancient world. Someone seems to be maintaining the roads & landscape.
Van Mars
Van Mars Gün önce
Please though, not an ancient rivalry. The Turkish entrance to the Greek speaking areas was at the year 1071. The ottomans subjected much of the old Greek speaking Eastern Roman Empire in the 14th-15th century and Cyprus conquered by the Turks in 1571. For a Greek timeline of history, this is quite recent rivalry and events. Ancient rivalry is with Persia, not the Turks.

I understand that you are trying to bring light to the experiences of the people that lived there, but it is still quite hurtful when this sad story is subtly portrayed as a result of the Turkish invasion. Us Turkish Cypriots do not appreciate Turkey’s intervention to be worded as an invasion, as the coup was unquestionably a form of ethnic cleansing, and our generation would not exist if such an intervention did not take place. This documentary is a good attempt at drawing people’s attention to the Cyprus conflict, but please beware of the significance of showing the hurt that took place in both sides. A greek family’s grief in missing the home that they have fled is valid, and I as a Turkish Cypriot show empathy to them, but our families have also fled the south to stay safe. You been politically incorrect but please do not undermine our hurt as a community. We have been hurt and we are still suffering, our rights are completely foregone and we cannot be ignored. Thank you.

That "bullet" you found, held and showed at the beginning was a BLANK cartridge. Not an actual bullet as the bullet is the actual projectile that is fired from a cartridge. Often mistakenly stated.

Well, this is the 3rd video from 'Yes Theory' that I have viewed(all 3, in entirety, truly a difficult feat for the creator- being 'good' enough to hold me until the conclusion of their story due to my pea-sized attention span + the fact I am subbed to about 115 channels at the moment!), and with these facts, YES THEORY has earned me as a new subscriber. Congrats boys! This is quite a rarity these days, as I have made it my mission to REMOVE/UN-sub from 1 channel per day until New Years... I have WAY too many I'm subbed to, and the fact is, it has been at least 5 yrs.since I have viewed content from some creators. Some I don't recall even subbing to, others, no longer interest me, etc., etc., etc. On that note, I digress. Looking forward to seeing more of the AWESOME CONTENT here at "Yes Theory", and THANKS for doing a fine job in regards to ALL aspects of the vids you make here. Much Love!

I was there in 2000. My dad was stationed in Nicosia for 3 years. It was crazy driving through there, seeing the abandoned gas station, airport, and a crashed fighter jet, just to go to the diplomat pool. People would also frequently drive go karts on the abandoned airport tarmac. Also, as the son of a diplomat, I was allowed to travel with him back and forth between the Turkish and Greek sides. One of the more memorable experiences I had was trekking through the ruins of Kantara Castle which is on the northeastern coast. There's so many amazing sights and experiences on that island, and everyone was incredibly friendly from what I remember, both Greek and Turkish.

I loved the lack of politics this video gave considering how considerable they were that divided the locals causing such a long term problem. Hopefully one day both sides can come together to rebuild Cypress , the whole world is seeing this toxic political climate so there is much work to be done everywhere, maybe Cypress can be a beacon for that some day.

My useless and uninformed opinion is that Cyprus would be best left alone by both governments. If Cyprus was left alone to its own people, the citizens might once again live in peace. If we, as the outside world, cared about peace at all we would help them along in their independent unified government that owed nothing to either side. That's what peace loving people do, they help their neighbors without expecting anything in return.
