    Mimi got a reaction from Goreme1990 in Lisa Morrow (Göreme1990) Interviewed on CNN Turk!   
    Hah, I had the same reaction one of the first times I came to Turkey to get married and I was asked for my kangaroo! Kangaroo, why are these people talking about kangaroos?!

    Mimi got a reaction from Karam in How's Your Turkish? A Discussion of Our Experiences in Learning the Turkish Language   
    I was just going to ask you that question Ken,  and I'm not worried cause I'm too far for you to punch me in the nose... I have never lived in Turkey for longer than 2 months, and I can express myself more or less decently. However, I don't understand what anyone says to me! I used to understand my ex, but only cause he had limited and repetitive vocabulary....

    Have a wonderful Christmas Becky, you have given yourself the best Christmas present of all!! They must be sitting there counting their broken egg shells those low lives. I hope you have a romantic date and that he's a nice guy just like you deserve.

    I would have a hard time coming back and I am afraid if I did go I would come back broke.  Not going to happen.

    Mimi got a reaction from Ken Grubb in Izmir taxi   
    Just checked and the hotels in Izmir are not all that expensive, and some of them have airport shuttles (not sure about that time of the morning though), so I think it will be better for me to take a taxi to a hotel in Alsancak, spend the night, visit Izmir the next day, and then just take a regular bus to Kusadasi the following day.
    Thank you again.

    Just to get an idea, approximately what can I expect to pay from Izmir airport to Alsancak by taxi?

    Just saw now there there are Havas buses that depart from Izmir airport to Selcuk and Kusadasi all day and night for about 30 TL.

    My question is more whether I should stick with Paribas to withdraw money from my Tangerine account (for free), or whether I should open up an account with Garanti. I may have to transfer a large sum of money to the bank to buy a property, so I'm wondering which bank is better. Thank you.

    Sorry, but I'm a bit confused. For small transactions, you use your bank that's linked to Turkey for free but your withdrawal capabilities are small, but for bigger transfers you pay $45 for withdrawals of any amount linked to Ziraat bank? What did you use Garanti for exactly?
     
    Thanks.

    Hi. I have a Tangerine account in Canada and there are no ATM fees if I withdraw through Paribas. Is it worth opening up an account with them if I buy a property, or should I go with Garanti? Thanks.

    Can one get a decent 2 bedroom condo in Kusadasi for around 60 000 Canadian? Also, what are some of the trustworthy agencies in that area? Thank you.
