Ledra street, Nicosia

I took an early morning WizzAir flight o Larnaca leaving at 6:40am. It was a smooth 2.5 hour flight. When I landed in Larnaca, it was easy to find the bus stop near an exit, and I bought a ticket to Nicosia. It was 8 euros. After 30 minutes we arrived somewhere.  For some reason I expected this ride to be about hour and a half, so I didn't think we had already arrived. Apparently this was already Nicosia, but not in the center of the city. I asked at the station and was told it's about 3km to the center, and I could take a city bus or walk. Since I love walking, I opted for that. It was more like 5km, but a pleasent walk along a big avenue, that took me about 45 minutes. I got to the Solomon square and my hotel was right there.

My room wasn't ready yet, so I decided to walk around the city for an hour or so. I walked along Ledra st, and ate something. Then I went back to the hotel to check in and rested for a while, before continuing my walk around Nicosia.

When I got out agian, I walked around passing by Omeriye Mosque, Archbishop's palace and ended at Famagusta Gate, which was once the main entrance to the city. It was a nice walk, but left me wanting for more. 

I was very tired, because of the early start, and all those activities, so I went to bed early.
