Vasilia & Vavilas Re-Visited

There are many stories of Cypriots leaving Cyprus as children and losing touch with friends, family or neighbours for decades.

Cyprus is a small island which has had massive numbers of its population emigrate, due to poverty in the 50s & 60s then another 200,000+ after the Turkish invasion of 1974, making Cyprus the nation with the highest proportion of its population (regardless of ethnic group) living abroad in the world.

This lady, Dorothea Allen (born Orthodoxia Himonidis) lived in a little village on the north coast of Cyprus called 'Vasilia' after the death of her father, her family moved to the UK when she was just 11 years old.

Now, years later, she is arranging for friends and neighbours from her village to meet again after 56 years.

This video is in Greek (sort of!) but it does have English subtitles if you select them, (also watch in 1080p) it is without doubt a hilarious introduction to an emotional event.
