By Engin Dervisaĝa…….

Am I becoming famous? I am not really sure but for certain I am now having more opportunities as a Bayrak Radio and Television producer and presenter to  meet more people and organisations so that I can write about them for my forthcoming Vox Pop shows on cyprusscene.com which is a great joy.
