North Cyprus Post Boxes - Kyrenia District

We arrived back yesterday from a short stay in Kyrenia in the Turkish occupied North of Cyprus.

Whilst wandering around the town I managed to snap some photos of a few of the post boxes we came across.

This first image is a King George VI Cyprus post office box erected during the current reign of the designated monarch.



This second image is a more modern Kibris post office box and is located in the main street of Kyrenia shopping area. It's close to one of the street dog feeding stations.


And this ugly monstrosity below is an ultra modern post box situated outside Kyrenia North Cyprus Post Office.


As I mentioned earlier about the Street Dogs, I decided to put a photo of them here too:



The "Street Dogs" are looked after by the Kyrenia Animal Rescue services. Dogs are taken from the streets, neutered and treated for worms and ticks as necessary plus any medical treatment if needed.

The dogs then have a numbered red chip clipped into their ear and are returned back to the streets. Preliminary visits are made to the area before releasing the dogs with checks to the local residents/shopkeepers to verify they will keep an eye on the animals, provide the food and water and that they will contact KAR if there is a problem.

Nice one!
