One Man in a Bus and One Man in a Grey Bus have the same content, but the latter has monochrome pictures and therefore is half the price. Both are the same light-hearted diary of a guided tour round North Cyprus.
One Man in a Pocket is an abbreviated form, which contains only the facts, figures and history you need to get yourselves around the country.
They all have many historical details concerning the island, which has had any number of invaders over the last 12000 years, and in 1974 became two countries. The North, controlled by Turkey, went into isolation after the split, and the border was only reopened in 2003. Things have changed little since then. The World still refuses to acknowledge their existence, and North Cyprus has to rely totally on support from Turkey. This is bad for them because they can't compete in the World Market, but good for us because the prices and facilities are amongst the cheapest of all tourist destinations.
Because the British were here for a century, the place has a familiar feel to it, with memories from the fifties all over, and the friendliness of the people make it like a home from home.
The diary has the stories of travel, ancient monuments, geography and anecdotes to hopefully amuse and inform as you go through.
Its little brother, 'North Cyprus, The Pocket Guide', details the same facts, history and legends without all the stories attached to the guided tour to get in your way. With the pocket guide, you will be able to fit it in your pocket and use it to get yourselves around the country without missing any of the main attractions.
