It is always important to remember that England was always firmly the centre of civilization and proper behaviour. Queen Elizabeth would not like to see her England as anything less. As we get farther away from England the chaos gets more intense. Venice is a place of relative calm but even here there is drama and conflict. Cyprus is closer to Turkey (not a Christian country) hence all hell breaks loose. There is disorder, chaos, murder and darkness; the perfect setting for a tragedy!
