    It’s similarly weird to Pripyat, but in a whole different way. Both man made abandonments, but this one has an entirely separate edge. You can’t actually get into Verosha, so any pics have been grabbed through fences while dodging the beady eyes of the…

    Sadly we’ve been unlucky with the football, and it’s never been on where we are up to now. We are going to see Paphos FC tomorrow though, but it’s not quite as exciting.
