  1. Hello. I am watching this soap currently. Can anyone please tell me if, what the narrator is saying is from a book ? From 14:12 to 15:50 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7ocvDJm93I Also, can you watch turkish soap series on the internet with english subtitles or rent them? Something like netflix?
  2. My husband and I just found out that when my brother comes to visit us for 3 weeks at the end of the year, he'll be bringing his Turkish girlfriend with him. This will be a large family gathering (for us), with 10-11 people staying in our house for at least part of that time. Some quick background on us: we're all American and live in the US. My brother and I are ethnically Chinese, while my husband is white. I don't really know anything about Turkish culture, although my husband is a little more worldly and quickly picked up that she was Turkish after hearing her name (and had the awaren
  3. Every culture has its myths and superstitions. And many are quite amusing! These are superstitions from all over Turkey. Hey, all of us occasionally do or say something, "just for good luck." When's the last time you knocked on wood? Animals A rabbit passing in front of one's car is a bad omen. An owl singing atop a house brings death to the house. Crows flying around one's house is bad luck. If a bird's excrement falls on one's head, it is good luck. If one sees a flying stork, they will travel. If one sees a sitting stork, they will stay at home. A b

  4. We are looking for an exciting guide to show us around Istanbul for a BBC show! You do not need experience as a tour guide but will need to have good English and be able to show us parts of the city that will awaken the senses. We want to experience the weird and wonderful side of Istanbul – nothing is out of bounds!! Please get in touch with [email protected] if you are interested, or if you know anyone that would fit the bill! I look forward to hearing from you! Freddie
  5. During certain times of the year, many Turks do not eat or drink during the daytime. They are fasting during the holy month of Ramazan (Turkish for "Ramadan"). This is when Muslims worldwide commemorate the revelation of the Koran to Mohammed. Ramazan is considered to be the "sultan" of the eleven months since that is the month in which Mohammed started to receive the Koran. It's the month of great spiritual and material blessings that Muslims all over the world look forward to. The religion of Islam is based on five principles: Belief in one God and Mohammed as his prophet.
  6. If you've been wondering about those baggy pants a lot of Turks wear, especially in rural areas, they are called şalvar (shahl-vahr). They're a very practical garment. You'll see them worn in every region of Turkey, but each region has it's own style. They can also be styled differently according to the type of work the wearers do. Before elastic became common in Turkey, a cord was threaded through the waist and ankle castings of trousers to gather the folds of material. The methods used to gather the waste of the şalvar vary according to region. In Alanya, for example, the waist ties are
  7. Şeker Bayram (sheh-kehr by-rahm) or sugar festival, is a national religious holiday in Turkey which begins the day after Ramazan. In Arabic, the name of the holiday is Id-ul Fitr. The name Şeker Bayram came from the tradition of exchanging sweets during this holiday. Ramazan is the month of fasting for Muslims all over the world. Şeker Bayram, like Ramazan, is based on the Islamic lunar calendar, so it occurs during different periods each year. Officially, Şeker Bayram lasts three and one half days, but Turks may be off work, and businesses may be closed, for a longer period if it occurs near
  8. Forget the usual Turkish politics which has taken the headlines recently. And just enjoy this.
  9. Looking to find some foragers in Turkey. I have been having a hard time finding anything online, and knowing this is mainly a very limited profession, I'm hoping someone on the board knows someone. Really wanting to find natural herbs, grasses, mushrooms, and wild fruits local only to Turkey. Any help would be appreciated. Justin
  10. Dance the Past into the Future “In the advancement of modern developments, will our culture suffocate?” Featuring interviews with young and old generations of the Laz and Hemsin communities, it explains how the practise of plateau migration has died out because young people prefer to spend life in the big cities. Read more here : http://turkishtravelblog.com/laz-hemsin-turkey/
  11. A new documentary has been released talking about the Laz and Hemsin communities of the Black Sea region of Turkey. Expats with friends from that area might be interested in it and I am certain, people from Rize and Trabzon will. Called Dance the Past into the Future, it is in Turkish with English subtitles. See my review here : http://turkishtravelblog.com/laz-hemsin-turkey/ Or watch the trailer on Vimeo
  12. Hello, I am thinking about moving to turkey but I am not able to find governmental universities in social sciences bachelor programs in English, and i did find private universities but those are so expensive, i was wondering if anyone has any tips for me on how to get into universities. I would also like some opinion about the work circumstances in turkey, i speak four languages ( Farsi, Dutch, English, Turkish), I do speak Turkish on a B2/C1 scale although I am not a Turk. another thing that I was wondering is the beginner salaries and work circumstances, as if I move I have to provide
  13. I'm sure I'm not the only who's had this conversation... Just what are our kids? Do you consider them "mixed race?" In some respects, the fact that I'm American and he's NATIVE Turkish makes our son multi-cultural (and, inshallah, bi-lingual in the future), but Turk is not really a race. Neither is Arabic, for that matter, but in today's society, I'm willing to put it out there that a Muslim/Arab receives as much prejudice as a person of color, thanks to all the media coverage of terrorism around the world. But "Arab" is not a box to check on any forms. There's a whole lot of attention abou
  14. Hello eveybody! A Turkish family was very kind to us and we would like to thank them by giving them a cake. I am in Germany now and as I am not very familiar with the Turkish culture, I was wondering if there is anything specific that I have to keep in mind. Do Turkish people generally like very sweet things, or not so sweet? Are there any restrictions to the ingredients? Any suggestions to what cake they might like? Many thanks, Juliane
  15. Oh man, oh man, I need some more advice! (What would I do without you guys!) I love Turkish food! I really do, but I don't eat all that much and my landlady seems intent on making me explode. She doesn't want me to stop eating and won't accept my doydum's! I'm not sure what else to say without being rude, so tonight she kept wanting me to finish the rice and tzatziki sauce that was left over and at first I thought she just meant the rice so I ate that and then she came back and pointed to the sauce and told me to eat! And... Well... I could have eaten it with more of the dinner but that woul
  16. A little info to start with Me and my girlfriend have been dating for about 6 months now but I have been best friends with her for a few years now. I am 29 Puerto Rican born in the US Girlfriend and hopefully to be wife is 26 Turkish born in the US Her parents were born in Turkey and are extremely old school traditional as she would explain it. I thought with them being traditional and all I should get to know and the family get to know me well before I ask her parents for her hand in marriage. So she introduced me to her parents about a month ago for desert and tea time and I have
  17. I still remember a French woman I met when I landed at the Ataturk Airport (and also in Turkish territory) for the first time. She was waiting in my neighboring line when I was trying to reschedule my flight to an earlier one. "Here in Turkey, you have to take things slow." She suddenly interjected, "you cannot really expect things to move on at a fast pace." Now three months have passed, and I am starting to understand what she was trying to tell me. Punctuality does not seem to be a strictly-obeyed rule in Turkey. There are countless times when someone made an appointment with me yet f
  18. I've always heard that family is so important to Turkish families and I've heard of traditions where they kiss the hand or something like that as form of respect. Correct me if I'm wrong but I wanna know more of this traditions of Turkish families.
  19. Just visiting Istanbul for 2 weeks, but I have noticed these things: People dress more conservatively. People look quite smart and European, especially on the metro and metro bus. People behave like city people, but if you ask them a question they quickly snap out of it, are very friendly and helpful. There are no chavs. There are no young single mothers with pushchairs, mobile phones, and smoking fags! People are dressed for the weather - sounds odd, but so many people at home do not! Everyone is an expert.....and I mean everyone......they know ever
