From the diaries of USA Consul General Taylor Belcher:

Lovely day! Leisurely breakfast, then drove to Kyrenia. Drove home via Lamboussa, Karavas and up through Myrtou, just beyond Lamboussa drove down fascinating dirt road towards sea. Rain into Fuad Sawimi and four Turk friends looking at land. Seems to me Kyrenia land is rapidly being bought up by Turks! Greeks say the government is selling them land cheap.
