A round table held in the Palais in 2003 was dedicated to the question of the perception of historic moments. Most of the attendees admitted that they had missed various historic moments, especially the Fall of the Wall. That realisation triggered an unusual proposal: to mark every future enlargement of the European Union with a bike ride along its borders. One particularly exciting project in this context involved Cyprus – and a cycling tour of the notorious Green Line. Just before the start of the journey, the Annan Plan (named after the former Secretary General of the United Nations) was rejected in a referendum. Cyprus joined the EU under the juridical fiction of a single island territory. The political reality remains that of a divided state.
