  1. If instigating a court case there is no 'awarding of costs' to the winner of the case, both parties are liable for their own court and legal costs.
  2. I think I would book a holiday in Greece instead.
  3. Yes, be careful to make sure that he knows you want karaciğer and not akciğer (lungs)
  4. Most butchers work to a pattern, possibly to have meat in when the town is busy for market day etc. Ask the butcher when he will have some in. Yes, we have bought it from a local butcher before.
  5. I have found liver very hard to find in supermarkets. The butcher will normally have it. I am not sure which is cheapest, but I love Arnavut ciğeri Good luck
  6. About the same decision we came to. I see that you managed to add the photo, aferin sana
  7. LC, When you are writing your post there is an option to choose the photos to add, or drag them in. keep the file size small though.
  8. Good job it missed the barbi too
  9. When you have won 50 days you get a free 'Kuddly Ken' to put your pajamas in.
  10. If I don't say much sometimes people take me for Turkish. The other day in a computer shop I was doing OK and the chap got what I wanted for me. There came a point when he sussed that I was not Turkish, it was at the point when I told him that I did not want a plastic bag, he said it's OK it';s free, I told him it was bad for the environment. At that point he asked my nationality!
  11. The fees are seriously expensive. there are others which teach a fair percentage in English but are all expensive. look also at MEF Izmir https://www.mefis.k12.tr/izmir/learning-at-mef/primary-school/overview/ Sorry I cannot answer more of your questions, I have not lived in Izmir for many years. good luck
  12. We also need to be careful about the idioms we use in English if we want to be understood by Turks. I stood in the pharmacy and listed to a Brit explaining that they 'feel a little under the weather'
  13. If the bank statement is in English it can be translated here (sometimes they don't require translation, but it should be original and stamped and signed by the bank). You need proof of graduating from High School to get drivers licence swapped for Turkish one.
  14. You should check with the Turkish Embassy in your country, the rules here change frequently. Good luck
  15. We had this about 5 years ago. they insisted on fitting a 'safety switch' bloody great ugly thing next to my cooker. i tried all sorts, putting it in the pantry round the corner but out of sight (could still reach it while cooking). they would not. End result we had them disconnect the pipes from the main underground tank to the kitchen and fitted an ordinary gas bottle in the pantry. As part of this 'safety upgrade' they insisted on new pipe from the tank to the basement where the boiler is. We had to pay for it. But they did not send anyone to dig the trench (about 30m). Fortunately we have a man who does, in the village. We had to pay him too. In retrospect we have had great treatment from Aygaz, apart from this blip. They send a technician to check the tank every year even though we do not buy a lot of gas and we are waaayy of the beaten track.
