Photographer's Note

Responding to a direct request, here is a photo of the sparklingly clean (as of 2022) golden-white sands of Varosha beach, which eas closed for 47 years following the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. The added bonus while swimming here is that when you grab the sands from the bottom all you are holding is golden sand with a white layer on top - no plastic straws, cigarette butts, or bottle caps. I am afraid that will change quickly because tourists are in on the secret.
