A young Greek demi-god tries to settle a feud between Zeus and Hades.

It’s the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson’s Greek mythology texts and into his life. And they’re not happy: Zeus’ lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy’s mother. As Percy finds himself caught between angry and battling gods, he and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy’s mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

I'm here in Cyprus representing the United States and I am accredited as Ambassador to the Republic of Cyprus. The Republic of Cyprus is essentially the Greek Cypriot portion of the island and that Republic of Cyprus is recognized by all of the members of the United Nations with the exception of Turkey. Turkey has recognized a government which has been established in the north of the island which is called the Turkish Federated State of Cyprus and Turkey has their Ambassador in the north. No other Ambassador is resident there except the Turkish Ambassador.
