The Island of Venus | Cyprus

This is a nice map postcard from Cyprus, also known as the Island of Venus. Cyprus (Greek: Κύπρος; Turkish: Kıbrıs), officially the Republic of Cyprus (Greek: Κυπριακή Δημοκρατία; Turkish: Kıbrıs Cumhuriyeti), is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Cyprus is the third largest and third most populous island in the Mediterranean, and a member state of the European Union. It is located south of Turkey, west of Syria and Lebanon, northwest of Israel and the Gaza Strip, north of Egypt and east of Greece.

The postcard was sent on 26 March 1988 and it reads: 'Hi Yvette, Hope all is well. We are fine this end. Cyprus is great so far. Rob is away so I'm a bit down. The weather is hot. We have got a car so I'm hoping to go to Limassol and Paphos sometime to explore their shops. We are in RAF Akrotiri, so there are plenty of planes that fly over. The quarter is ... and has a big garden for Tom to roam around in. Tom is still the same - a pain. Anyway will have to go. I will write shortly when I've got time. Take care of yourself. Love to Matthew and John. Love Kay and Thomas xxx'
