..try and hook up whith someone who has experience .on the ins and outs of turkey..basicly the pitfalls ..eg,buying a house ,buying a car,getting on-line..internet/phone, also having a good turkish friend(you can trust) that speaks moderate english..this can be a really big help..i have had the same friend here for 23 years ..and has saved me thousands..also anything your not sure of ..just go into the search engine on this forum ..there is a lot of good honest advice there..:28:
Ditto - rent, find your way, make friends for friendships and neighbourly sake, but trust more the people who are slow to give it, not the first guy who hangs over your shoulders and say ' we are friends' !!!!
Respect .and tolerance
..and watch, learn, read ( here and everywhere)
Don't stick with one group- the first social group you come across...
join activities where there are Turkish people...
normal new place stuff?
