Hello

#1
I am new at this forum and in Kusadasi. I am Turk and originally from a near city. This might sound a bit weird but I know almost nothing about Kusadasi. I was in abroad for a while to study and I was going to other cities, usually to Bodrum for holiday.

I found this forum very helpful in finding information about Kusadasi. After becoming a resident, I have noticed that Kusadasi is a nice town. The air of Kusadasi is really clean and the climate is much better (not so hot, boring or humid) than I expect. I decided to move to Kusadasi mainly because of its proximity to Izmir. I was hesitant between Bodrum and Kusadasi and this forum really helped me. Now I think Kusadasi was not a bad choice. Although I am in a central location, I hope Kusadasi doesn't become deserted during winter.

I hope I can contribute to this forum and to the community here as a new member. That's why I signed up. Hello again to everyone!

Hi Redwine, nice to know you are willing to help others, if you want to socialise maybe you could join one of the darts teams who will be playing in a league over the winter season, as well as for fun during the summer. It's a great way to make friends, many of whom are Turkish, Scottish and English. Come to the Nova on Monday and meet a few. You won't be disappointed and novices are welcome:)

I like darts. I was playing darts long time ago when I was a student. It's a good game and nice to hear that there are people who still play it. We were playing darts for beer. Yeah that's true. I am good at such games and I drunk hundreds or thousands of free beers. We were also playing billiard for 2-4 bottles of beer. The loser was paying the 4 beers (2 beers for himself/herself +2 beers for his/her opponent, sometimes, when both of them are good drinkers, the loser had to pay for up to 8 beers) and plus for 5-10 tokens for the music box. All of those quantities were depending on the how long the game lasts. Some games were lasting even for 5 hours when both players are drunk. Everything was acceptable until you break a glass or bottle accidentally or consciously. Those were the most beautiful days for a young student.. However billard (american billard) was the most destroying game for the budget of a student when you are not the winner. I have just noticed that people were playing ping pong for nothing. It's interesting. I don't know why and now I am surprised why I have never wondering the reason. Probably I was not good at ping pong :)

I am also good at chess. Is there anyone who wants to play chess? I am here in Kusadasi. Come here and meet a real living genius :) Is it a challenge? Yeah for sure :)

Welcome to the forum redwine- you're great gas and I think you are going to be a very lively addition to the forum! I think you are from Izmir from what you said on another thread and I agree with you- it us a beautiful city.

Thank you Peril. Yes I can be counted as a citizen of Izmir :) Because we, father, mom, I, lived in Izmir for long years. I know Izmir well. But no, I am originally from a near city to Kusadasi and its bigger than Kusadasi. On the other hand it should be smaller than Izmir if I am not from Izmir. Because Izmir is the biggest one around. Hehehe it's becoming like a puzzle :)

Ah - a puzzle- Soke? Aydin? Milas? - I'll have to resort to Google maps if it isn't one of them - if I'm wrong - give me a hint- north south or East of Izmir?
 
#10
Ok. I am giving up. You won. I am originally from Aydin. You won the big prize :) Are you happy now? :) I have never wanted to disclose it and wanted to keep it as the secret of my life till forever. Do you see what have you done? :) I don't want to talk to you again :)

Hi Redwine, this monday is at the Nova but we alternate. The following week is at the Emyr Beach restaurant at Long Beach, and the next is at Ramos Place near the Friday market which is my local domain. We also have an occasional night at the Old House on Ladies Beach, usually on a Wednesday too. We'll let you know more at the Nova on Monday, which may start early if we can get a board up near the pool in the guest house above:) All darts events have discounted drinks and meal deals too:)

Oh, we have a spare place in the summer tournament doubles event. 2 lira per game, ALL funds towards a big party end of September with a raffle prize for everyone too. This is a non profit organisation, all voluntary, so if you can find a partner, let me know:)

Ah what a pity - just as I was getting to know you!
Peril, I know :) I was kidding and you know it :) I am in the same position indeed. I would like to know about you. Probably I will do the same, I will read your old posts to know more about you.

Then your local domain is very near to mine.

Discounted drinks sound very good to me :) I was looking for such cheap places :) I believe here most of us are not coming from rich families. Almost all of us are looking for cheaper alternatives and it's normal until we have lots of money to spend.
I was spending time lonely around the big human hand statue on the shore. I am happy to make some friends here like you.

I am afraid I don't have a partner.

I recently discovered Italiobrother. Yes I accept I am late. They are not very new. But they have nice music and this song is very good to listen with Buzbağ red wine that is now I am drinking:
Here is the song.:


You can find a few more of their videos at youtube. Am I wrong? It's a nice music though my favorite is rock/metal for most of the time.

This one is also good: If anyone wants to join me, send me a personal message. Sorry it was a wrong sentence. You can't join a single person. In other words, I would like to join to you if possible because I am only 1 person :) My house is almost on the seafront and I am at home for now. But I want to hang out soon. I am bored at home.

Welcome to the forum redwine. :) Many of us also pop into Gossips cafe in centrum. Best days are probably Wednesday, Friday and then on Saturday evening there is a quiz, bingo etc. Nice friendly bunch of people too.

Redwine, Pat Bryant from the Popeye's Crew team based at the Emyr Restaurant wants to join the summer tournament. I've told him there is a doubles space available and that he may want to join you for a doubles pairing. He is coming to Nova tomorrow. Maybe you can pair up with him? Meet each other and decide tomorrow:) Each game is 2 lira each whether you win or lose, and ALL of the money will be put towards raffle prizes for everybody, and a big party at the end of September. This is a non profit tournament so all funds will be accounted for with the awards, raffle prizes and the party, which will be a barbeque in a secret brilliant setting 5km from centrum on the 29th September:) The first and second place in both singles and doubles will have a play off for the trophies on the night:)

Finally I found the Nova and I was there yesterday for 1-2 hours then I went to another part of the city, spent some hours at an irish disco on a bar/disco street. I am learning around slowly. A singer was singing at Nova and there were few people.
Yes I will be at Nova tomorrow to meet you and I can join anyone or anyone can join me. Please send me a message to let me know when you will be there. Thank you.
