Thank you Tom, for adding me as a member. I read your book, "Bright Sun, Strong Tea" some years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Another favorite of mine, probably about the same time frame, that you have probably heard of is "Scotch and Holy Water!" Unfortunately I think that one is out of print. I've read Tom's various articles here on many occasions, I don't think there is a more comprehensive website about traveling in Turkey anywhere else.
Anyway a bit about me. I live in Antalya, and have lived in Turkey for around ten years, mostly in Izmir. I first came to Turkey as a civilian working with NATO there (hence my appreciation for the "Scotch and Holy Water" book!). I went back to the states after that but always missed Turkey, so after I retired, I returned to Turkey, got a residence permit, and settled down here. I have never regretted that decision.
Anyway, I'll try to help out other members if they have any questions about anything around Izmir or Antalya.
General chat as in a "çay evi" (Turkish tea house).
