Olacağınız yer

We'll spend most of our time in 200-year old family land nearby Kormakitis’ (Korucam) centre for carob-picking. My ancestors lived off the land until 1974, after when carob/olive-picking halted for a few years due to unfavourable political/economic conditions in the village. Kormakitis is inhabited by Cypriot Maronites (Catholics) for the past 900 years, including my grandparents, whose traditional house we can visit after the fields.
