Just a note for those of you who are not here at the moment and who own property. I don't know about you but every time I come there seems to be a new way of extracting money from me. I have a contingency fund to cover this but I'm always wondering what will be next. Well this time I arrived to find a bill of 210 lira. The new mayor has decided we must all have new water meters. Now I paid quite a bit for one when my house was built so now I have to pay again. These new ones have a card with them and you must pre pay for your water then you insert the card into the meter. You go to the Belediye office near Migros and load it up. My fear now is that I will run out of water on a Friday night and have to wait until Monday to get more. Even worse I have visions of losing the card.
