Fort Anadiou (north of Paphos) was a remote base at the edge of a Turkish Cypriot village. Today, a lot of earthworks in front of the site has made a direct comparison impossible.

The Turkish Cypriot village of Stavrokonnou had a permanent UN camp situated high above the village. When we arrived in the village and asked for help the only person we saw turned out to be a Turkish Cypriot who had been born there..............he knew where everything was.

The entrance to the Turkish area in Limassol.

The Dansborg outpost at near Xeros (now Denizli) was the site of the traditional Danish 'Julebadning' festival (Christmas Bathing).
Today the building has military markings and is bordered by lots of trees.
