Hi Cynthia, You can rent an apartment in Adana for as low as 300 Euros. The apartment would be in the city with 2-3 bedrooms and one bath, heating/cooling would be by a split air-conditionar (wall unit.) You cannot spend Euros for daily shopping but you can change money at the corner exchange offices (banks are not preffered because of commissions.) Myself and my girl-friend live in a house with 3 floors; we can rent you one of the fllors with its own bathroom and kitchen. House is heading to a lake and a very peaceful place. I will send you pics if you are interseted. I am a college professor and can help you for your troubles if you need help. (I am American) Please contact me at vurcen at yahoo.com address if you need more info. Best. Al Cengiz +90 532 717 7637

I have an interview with a school tomorrow (internationally recognized). They stated that I wont need a work visa. I want to make sure that I am compliant with country laws but since they are a well known company, why would they say this? They said that it takes a very long time to obtain one. From what I have been reading, I just need to go down to the Polis and show my employment to acquire the visa for at least a year. Also, the pay is really low 1500TL, but they are providing lodging and food. Is this going to be enough for me? I don't have children and I'm pretty thrifty.

Hello, I've lived in Izmir for a year now.. Most language schools offer at least 2,000 TL and accommodations. I don't know what they're like but plan to find out for a friend who is relocating from the U.S. Usually, the place of employment will do the paperwork for your work visa but remember that it is good only for that particular place or school. Good luck.

kate78 commented on the Expat Report Living in Izmir, Turkey
Describe how you "dreamed" expat life would be before you moved overseas. Please provide as much detail as possible.
The dream I had before moving to Izmir, Turkey was based in the reality of the life I lived in Istanbul years ago. It was the willingness of Turkish people to help and to understand a stranger or foreigner. I was treated with such respect because of my high education that I could even sit in a tea house among men in a small village and discuss politics. I spent some summers in Bodrum 10 years later and had the same warm interactions. While in a fisher village on the other side of the town center, and a very isolated place at the time, my colleague and I were invited to share dinner with the boatman who had taken us along the coast. We sat in a small circle with his family and ask from the same large pan. I spoke fluent Turkish at the time, so I'm sure that helped. I have many more stories about the people at that time that are incredibly beautiful and unlike any other place I've ever lived. (Continue)
