  1. Vu8, your post made me chuckle! Especially the part about dogs lunging at you and biting you! I spent the summer in Kusadasi, and there are certainly a lot of stray cats and dogs roaming around. The cats seemed to be very friendly and come up close to you. One of them would try to nibble at my leg, but the rest would just be looking for food. As Ken said, the dogs tend to roam around in herds mostly at night. They can be noisy. I easily get scared when a herd of dogs starts approaching me in the dark because you never know what can happen. Apparently, they can also sense your fear, but nothing ever happened to me, even though they would come near me to see if by chance I had any food. I also didn't stay too long on dark roads near dogs, nor did I try to pet any them. So it's not as if you are walking down the street and have to fear being attacked by them! Don't worry about it too much.

  2. Thank you very much Ken for a very precise and clear answer on airbnb. I don't want to do anything to mess-up my retirement plans in Turkey. Aloha! Will

    Where to turn?

    I hope I can get advice on this as it is making me ill. After living in Turkey for many years and being married for 8 of those I left Turkey after threats of death. I left behind my assets and came home penniless and traumatized. My husband was Turkish and although I blocked him on all media he found me and sent threatening mail for years. Sometimes wanting me back and sometimes with threats to kill me. He had a drug and alcohol problem which I tried hard to help with throughout our marriage. He never worked and I worked sometimes 18 hour days to build up our life. I tried to move on with my life , but it has been hard psychologically. I contacted the registry office here for them to tell me there is no record of my marriage so I am free to marry here. I don't want to but I needed to know. My husband is now bombarding me with threats that he needs to see me in court for a divorce and take everything I own. I have found out that he had many credit cards in my name and left debts everywhere. He told everyone I left with all of the money and now wants it back. I cant tell you how much he stole from me but it was my life savings, my house sale and daughters inheritance. I want to be free of him and maybe step back in to the country I loved and left without fear of some sort of retribution. I read that he can divorce me as I ''deserted '' him without my input. Is this true? However I feel he wont do this as he appears to believe I will have even more money and he wants it. The truth is , I own nothing, I work hard for little money and rent. I want to be free of him. Please help me someone.

  4. I'm so sorry to hear what has happened to you and wish you the best of luck, MissMoss. Unfortunately, I can relate because I've made a similar experience. I've had my integrity taken and life ruined by a doctor's negligence too. Searching for help online, I stumbled upon this thread. Lawyers in my country already told me, that I would have to hire someone in Turkey, specialized in medical liability. However, I've heard that chances of success are rather slim, because doctors, no matter how bad they are, are highly regarded in Turkish society and corruption of the legal system. It's sad how criminal and inhuman treatment has such bad prospect of being punished appropriately. I already considered contacting the Ministry of Health as well, but I was skeptical if they would be of any help or even be willing to communicate with me in the first place.
