Bands won't play no more

After my earlier post about Cyprus, I had a vague recollection of ghost towns on the UN enforced border separating Northern Cyprus from the Republic of Cyprus. One such town is Famagusta. Before the invasion, the town was a popular beach resort, but it was abandoned in a hurry. Despite the abandonment, the town still has a chamber of commerce and a football team, waiting for the day they can return.
I love the idea of ghost towns, and one day I will get round to visiting a few. MetaFilter has a handy thread of links about just this subject.
