GenSep Report: The adventure of traveling

The routes of Generation Separation are ambitious and exciting. Team Enemies reports about its trip from Cyprus via Serbia to Kosovo.

By Paul Nehf

The short Bangladeshi guy furrows his brow: „I’m sorry, you are late. I have to close in half an hour. And tomorrow is Sunday, I won’t be here.“ I take a deep breath. I know that begging is not one of my best skills. But we need to upload the videos now! In front of my inner eye I see Team Berlin already getting their knives out. Time for plan B. “How much do you want to let the computer running until Monday?”, I ask. The owner of the cyber café just next to our hotel in Nicosia looks at me for a while. Then he takes a calculator. I prepare myself for the upcoming bazar situation. How much will he say? Can I bargain him down to, let’s say, 30 Euros? “Okay…”, the Bangladeshi starts, “give me four Euro.” “Four?” I am astonished. Does he know that in this moment he is the life insurance for the GenZapp-Show of the following day? He probably is not aware. I give him ten Euros. It never felt so fair.

The next morning we (over)load our small rental car, press ourselves between all those bags of equipment and head towards the airport of Larnaka. Four pale ghosts after three days of almost no sleep. Leaving this beautiful island behind, the warm and friendly people, the stories around the inner-Cypriot border. Even the unofficially named Miss GenSep 2014.

GenSep Guestbook: Intelligent young people want to leave Cyprus

 

A TEXT WRITTEN BY BLOGGER VASIA MARKIDES

The Cyprus “problem” as it is known, affects young Cypriots on a very deep level. The language of opposition runs through every fabric of society. You’re not this, you’re that. You live here, not there. You have this, not that. You feel this, not that. There is no room for grey to exist, which makes it difficult for young people to think outside the box. Their feelings have been shaped and molded by external forces since the day they were born. Whether by the parents, the schools, the media, or the military, they have been told what and how to think from the beginning. For this reason, many of them have accepted the status quo of division and moved into the realm of apathy. The quick wealth which came to Cyprus in recent decades (before the recent bank crisis and economic downturn) has created a generation whose majority is more interested in money, clubbing, coffee, cigarettes and gossip, rather than getting politically engaged and developing themselves creatively and intellectually. Lack of good leadership is also largely to blame for this. Corruption runs deep in the society.  Lesen Sie weiter…
