  1. Great, so long as I don't have to do anything. Thank you for the clarification!
  2. So for him to register his new marriage in his kimlik, I'll need to file some sort of papers in Turkey?
  3. My ex husband (Turk) and I (American) were married in Turkey, and then he moved with me to the USA and became and American citizen. We were married over 20 years, and divorced here in the US last year. He recently remarried, here in the US, and he and his new wife (American) plan to move to Turkey and live there. I'm just curious if Turkey will recognize his new marriage, since we married in Turkey but did not divorce there. Will we need to obtain a Turkish divorce?
  4. Many years ago, I was visiting my then boyfriend, now husband in Turkey. His car broke down, so he called a tow truck. We waited inside the car for it to arrive. It arrived,he got out and spoke to the driver while he hooked the car up to the tow truck. I waited inside, thinking that as soon as it was all hooked up, we'd get inside the tow truck. Everything's hooked up, my boyfriend gets back in the car with me, and the tow truck takes off, with us still inside the car!! Shocked, I asked my boyfriend"Are we supposed to still be in the car? Isn't this dangerous?" He replied that it probably was
  5. Loved it! "Grease" was one of my favorite movies as a teenager. Oops, I'm showing my age! This video definitely made me smile.
  6. Thanks for the update! I'm so glad they finished it, and I can't wait to see it next year when I visit Turkey again.
  7. Last time I was in Cesme, about 4 years ago, we visited a church that was on the main street, where all the shops are. It was extremely old, and looked like someone was trying to restore it. There were ladies with their handmade goods displayed, selling them, and art work was displayed. The church looked like it would be beautiful if the restoration was completed. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Has anything more been done to the church?
  8. Yeah Ken, the metro stop in Sirinyer just opened last year. My hubby was there a few months ago, and said it's really nice and convenient. I can't wait til our visit there this summer to see for myself!
  9. My husband's family lives in Sirinyer/Buca, and I think it's a nice neighborhood. Lots of shops, restaurants, the bazar, several parks, and a subway station, with which you can travel around Izmir. It's a short taxi ride to Konak.
  10. My family and I visited Dagal Yasam Parki in 2009. I was impressed with the efforts made to create a natural setting for the animals. They all had wide open areas to roam. There is a tropical enclosed area that looks and feels like a rainforest, with many beautiful birds and plants. My only complaint was that, when they built this zoo, they went in and cleared out all the trees to design the enclosures. So there is very little shade available. It's been over 3 years now, so I don't know if this situation has improved. It looked like they had planted many young trees, so hopefully, they have ma
  11. I have a friend who was born in Turkey to Turkish parents. They moved to the US when he was a small child, and he has lived in the US ever since, and is a US citizen. He is 50 years old. He did not do his military service, and has not been to Turkey since leaving it as a child, partly for fear that he will be arrested. I know that there are laws in place now, so that a man can pay a fee and do little to no military service. But given his age, does he still need to pay, or be worried about being arrested or forced into service? He'd like to visit Turkey, but isn't sure what he can expect at the
  12. Hello! My husband is going to be visiting his family in Turkey, but I can't go. So he promises to bring me some gifts. I've been to Turkey several times, so I have most of the souvenir type stuff. Besides a few food items, I don't know what to tell him to bring. Any suggestions from those of you who are living there now? What music/artists are popular now? I love Turkish pop, but don't know who's big now. Any other gift ideas?
