Dear Steemians,

last days we had a lot to do and we were on Cyprus. It's a beautiful country in southern Europe. Next days I will write an extra article about "crypto travel" in Cyprus because we are working with professional lawyers in Cyprus and they will help you to form international offshore companies to live tax-free or with tax optimization. The best thing: You can pay them directly with Bitcoin! :D

So if you want to form a tax-free company in Dubai, Freezone, Marshall Island, Belize, etc... Just write me and we will help you to do it with Bitcoin :) But as I said, I will publish an extra post here on steemit for this in a few days.

Today I want to show you the last divided capital in the world

Nicosia is the largest city on the island of Cyprus and is the capital and seat of government of Cyprus.

Today, the North Nicosia is the capital of Northern Cyprus, a state recognized only by Turkey, that is considered to be occupied Cypriot territory by the international community.

If you walk through the city its a very strange feeling, especially for me as a German. In Germany, we are celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall. Here in Nicosia is still a wall but it's not a normal wall. It's a wall out of houses.

Let's have a look:

⬆ On the left, you can see a little white house. It's a border post. I was not able to make a picture from it because a soldier was inside and taking pictures is forbidden.

⬆ On the opposite side of the white house are some sandbags for the soldiers if they would bombard each other.

DSC04687.png ⬆ Taking pictures is everywhere on the border forbidden. So you have to hide your camera.

⬆ This is the checkpoint in the middle of the pedestrian area. You can cross the border here with your passport but you will not get a stemp for it.

DSC04661.JPG ⬆ Most houses here are very old. You can see an old Coca-Cola advertising

DSC04659.JPG ⬆Lot's of graffiti

DSC04654.JPG ⬆ Dora in front of a mosque

DSC04690.JPG ⬆ A very nice restaurant on the turkish side.

Hope you enjoyed it!

Cyprus is worth traveling for old and new traditions , the lovely beaches and very nice people. Thank you for sharing such beautiful shots!

·

Thank you :)

Interesting to see the wall and how they did it. It's kinda sad though =/ Is there still some tensions between both sides ?

·

Yes, there are big tensions between them :( But no war. They just dont like each other..

Looks like you had a great time! I would love to visit Cyprus one day if money allows me :)

·

You have to visit! It's beautiful there :)

Just realized your awesome nick. In what way you think you escape the matrix? because it is all around us in every segment of our life.

·
·
·

With the matrix, I mean the system that was built from humans like states, tax regulations, laws, rules, monetary system, etc. All these things have loopholes or alternatives and I show people how to find these loopholes to have a life with more freedom.

That is why we are traveling so much. We are looking where you get treated best and where you can live a free life. After that, we are writing about it. I will start publishing now in English as well.

So for example here in Cyprus, you can legally live tax-free if you are moving your residence here and earn money with offshore companies (and you are not a US citizen). And we found lawyers that will form international companies for you and you can pay them directly with Bitcoin. I will write about it soon :)

So I hope you now know what I mean with Goodbye Matrix :P

I knew from the beggining what you meant, thats why I said it is an awesome nick. you didn't understand my question. How do you escape it?
If you only travel what do you do for a living?

·
·
·
·
·

I have an online business what is location independent. And I help people to do the same :)

·
·
·
·
·
·

And you can make a living off it? that is awesome, congratz! I hope I can achieve the same because living in the matrix here in Croatia is getting me sick. Literally, I'm fed up and tired of their bullshit. But I must first finish college to go anywhere.
Also love the zebra plant succulent on your website, got 2 at home and they are one of my favorites.

matrix is also inside the video (I send the link to the video)
matrix is also in this poem

"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,

Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."

—J.R.R. Tolkien's epigraph to The Lord of the Rings

wow fantastic post, really enjoy watching your photographs of cyprus, well even taking shots are forbidden but you did very brave job to take some shots and tell us about how cyprus looks like, keep up your good work, thanks for sharing

·

For me, it's not interesting what is forbidden :D Thanks :)

i must say thats a beautiful country cyprus 😍

Fun fact:
Did you know that Copper (symbol Cu for latin Cuprum) is etymologically derived from Cyprus? The island was the major source of Copper in the ancient Mediterranean area. ;)
