  1. Thanks for all the information. In the summer I hope to visit and experience the place all over again, after so many years.Ash.
  2. I have the opportunity to study in Ankara as part of a Masters course and if I came to the city my partner (who is a man) would come as well.However I do speak to gay men all over the world as part of my counselling work and it is useful for me to know how things are in Turkey.
  3. I don't know about these yet, but the program will be part of a masters course and the time at Ankara is part of my home university's program, so I am assuming they will let us know what is required and the formalities. I hope so!
  4. I found out the course I am interested in is at Hacettepe University. So I can now go into their website and check out what they have to offer. Ankara does sound like a great place to study. I have some other choices as well but I have a bit of time to decide.
  5. Just wondering if anyone can tell me what the University in Ankara is like. Are there good facilities? Are there any sports facilities? How about accommodation? Is it easy to find in Ankara?
  6. I'd like to know whether anyone has any experience of what it is like for same sex couples in Turkey. When I visited about 15 years ago I was struck by the intimacy and closeness of friends of the same sex, particularly men. However I realise this does not translate to widespread acceptance of same sex couples or homosexuality generally. I am interested in hearing if anyone has had experience of what it is like for lesbians and gay men in Turkey and whether there are bars or clubs where gay people meet. What is it like to be gay or lesbian or same sex attracted in Turkey?
  7. I'm interested in whether anyone here has experienced Homesickness,How long did it last?What did you do about it?What have you learnt in the process?
  8. I work in a similar way- online and am paid in another country to the one in which I reside. And I agree with what Ben says. Employment law in many countries doesn't seem to have accounted for working online yet, but I guess it is only a matter of time before this is taken into account. However you do need to ensure you are legally in the country.
  9. I attended a workcamp in Urla near Izmir about 15 years ago. After a couple of bad experiences in the chaos of Istanbul, finding myself in this small town was a refreshing and heartwarming experience. The people were really kind and hospitable. I was wondering if anyone else has been to Urla and had experience of how the town is now? I stayed in the summer camp on the island that was previously used for quarantine.
