    Profile of a Turk

    Turkish people?s profile revealed in new survey - LOCAL 94% of Turks have never travelled abroad for a holiday and 69% of husbands think wives need their permission to work. These are the most shocking to me. Sometimes I think the west coast and Izmir should be annexed to Europe. Charlotte
