Re: How many people on TLF

Thanks for that. Yes I have FB so will look into it. The line dancing sounds like fun and good for the exercise too. Plus the Turkish cookery classes sounds great. I think I'd like to do that in the summer months to if they do that summer time. These activities are sounding good to me. MayBe you can pm with the womens group number or website. Thanks again.

Im just guessing but maybe projecting something firmly unattractive will appear less threatening---frumpy hat and frumpy traditional anatolian highlands garments... I dont know... you cant change your dressing up too often or they will definitely suspect your a bit loopy...ok enough of my unqualified advice..

I wish Duo Lingo had Turkish... its a great online game type learner for languages!
Are you for real??

I ask this quite seriously because I'm not reading much about Turkey in many posts.
Still living there, close to the southernmost tip of Turkey, aside from Hatay of course. So basically, we both are approaching dreary winter, dull weather, bleak USD-TRY ratings, lamentable outcomes, sad feelings

When I first moved here I did sometimes get a bit bored in winter but not really any more, dont seem to have that much free time.
I'm not sure about being brave although a lot of people have said that. I just believe you should do what you want to do with your life. Lifes far too short and precious to live any other way. Life is what you make it and theres no such word as "cant" in my book. If you want it enough you can!

McB I do speak Turkish and love it. Even when Turks speak to me in English I still carry on in Turkish lol. I'm always asking random people in the PTT. bank or market the correct way to say something and continue learning every day. Thats definitely a good way to fill free time in winter - learn the language! So much can be learnt online and from books and just speaking to people then maybe just a lıttle help with understanding grammar and it all falls into place.

I have been on the FB and have now discovered so much more to do and see. In fact I would recommend it to anyone that may be thinking of the same questions I've been asking. In just a quick view of the last month on one of the FB sites I feel Alanya has opened up for me. I will take a look at some of the other sites too. Thanks again.

Re: How many people on TLF

Our friends who have lived in Turkey for 12+ years have to make their own entertainment during the Winter months. He loves fishing (never catches anything though !) They go to quizzes, play pool and there are lovely organised walks in the countryside. Lots of resident Brit's put on a panto' at Christmas time. The Turkish children love it too !! Steve is right though - when they changed the rules to the 90 days in 180 it stopped many people staying longer in Turkey. A loss for them in a way, as we now spend our money elsewhere e.g. Spain/France.

Re: How many people on TLF

It's still a great place although like everywhere it has changed. Seeing it now as a visitor is definitely different to being there long term as a property owner but I will still touch base from time to time and who knows for certain what the future holds

Duo Lingo does have Turkish, the wife and I spent many hours at it last year, in the winter months. Eventually I gave up as too many correct answers were marked wrong and I got frustrated.

How do you ripen the dates are they sun dried. How do you store them. Any idea how to store lemons without the use of a freezer? I've seen how the olives are stored which is quite fascinating. Not sure if something similar can be done with lemons. Which are really lovely in Turkey.

We ripen ours on the balcon ,some on there stalks and some on trays ., in the full heat of the day but covered over the sun hardens the skin. We find our dates keep about 2 mouths if dried out ok . To ripen quickly put in a paper bag freeze over night and thaw in the morning it makes the ripening quicker . You can freeze them with no loss of taste . They say they can keep up to five years .Most dates you buy at christmas have been frozen.

Lemons can be salted and stored in kilner type jars.
