My week in Cyprus has been spoilt by the lousy weather: deluges every lunchtime, and grey skies most of the rest. The hail stones like tennis balls missed Nicosia. It seems the weather forecast is not much different in Tbilisi.
Turkish Cypriots are getting qualified to join the EU. They are already skeptical and able to point out the inconsistencies and stupidities of some of the legislation. On the other hand they are not able to recognise the difference this makes. Some of them seem to prefer poverty and isolation "in" Turkey (and no changes) to economic development and a higher standard of living with the EU. Changes are difficult.
The public sector earns more than the private sector in Turkish Cyprus, so why should anyone change?
