The old Toufexis Mansion, now the cultural centre of Cyprus University. There was something disconcerting about hearing a minimalist piece being rehearsed on piano, here in a district tying its hardest to be a ghost town.
There are a lot of Russians in Cyprus nowadays, and they make their presence known on the finger daubed graffiti of dusty windows in the ghost town, as well. Top of the picture, Andrei loves Nastya, and Vanya loves Masha.

I’m afraid I simply can’t tell which abandoned mosque on the Greek side of Old Nicosia this is. From the location, this should be the Ömeriye, but the street name does not match (and Google thinks it is on the other side of town), and the Ömeriye is supposed to be more open to the public than this looks.
