I feel I can answer a few of your questions so please fire away.
I am married to my wife Filiz for 8 years and dont plan to live any where else apart from Turkey.

Oh I have plenty of stories but where do I start? Earthquakes including the 1999 one, flash floods, mafia shootings, Bodrum at a war footing, solar eclipse, village in Sivas, waking up with pockets of cash and no idea where it came from, Istanbul traffic and it just goes on and on just tell me which one you want to hear and I will type it up.

Yes I woke up one morning with a blinding hangover and was wondering how much money I blew the night before and looked in 1 pocket and had a wad of deutshe marks, the other pocket was full of dollars my back pocket was full of sterling and the final pocket was full of lira but I wasnt happy because I couldnt find my lighter.

I won it in a casino the night before but the last thing I remembered was downing Raki in a disco.
