Sometimes the political situation in Cyprus seems like what the island revolves around, and other times it seems like an issue that everyone deals with by ignoring it. When discussing the ongoing division and the situation with Turkey, be careful to remain sensitive to this volatile issue that most Cypriots feel strongly about -- remember that older people you meet probably lived through the war of 1974, and younger people grew up with their parents' stories about it. Also, be aware that you may always be viewed as an outsider when voicing your opinion. That said, everybody in Cyprus DOES have an opinion about Cyprus, and if you stay sensitive and scratch the surface of the issue, you're sure to get a long and interesting conversation.
