How many people on TLF

How many people on TLF still live in Turkey or spend time in Turkey . What are your lives like in Turkey. ?
I ask this quite seriously because I'm not reading much about Turkey in many posts.
One of my recent posts was with regard to Republic day which was held recently and it appeared that nobody celebrated it. Or didn't post that they did. My Turkish friends had plenty of celebrations so has TLF got nobody left that has an interest in Turkey - bar the very few on here that write very interesting posts, which personally I find so helpful.

I really miss some of the recently departed TLF 'rs . I learnt a lot from them.

I particularly like news on Alanya because I spend time there but am interested in other places. One of the things I want to know is What do you do in Alanya or elsewhere when the season finishes.

Re: How many people on TLF

Good post Shash, you raise some interesting points. i am also interested in what percentage of TLF posters spent time in Turkey in the last year, and what percentage of TLF members reside here all year round. We do.
As for your question about what do people do 'when the season finishes' it probably depends if you are a person who recognizest that here is a season. We have lived in Bodrum and the TRNC and hardly ever went near a beach. On a daily basis we work in the garden (this morning sweeping leaves and using the log splitter to add to the wood store, picking olives too.
I also agree that we are having too few posts on Turkey, but debates on the politics are dangerous for those of us who live here, it is best not to comment. I look forward to other replies.

Re: How many people on TLF

I think with the current situation in Turkey lot of people prefer to keep their posts and opinions away from online media.

It's a shame but that's how things are at the moment.

Re: How many people on TLF

For many long term inmates it is noticable how different the part time visitors vision of Turkey is of ours. With regard to lifers here you write about Turkey once, anything after that is repeating yourself and the search button is a lead into past posts. Another feature of TLF is the amount of contradiction in posts which leads to people wondering if anything they may have to say would be headed anyway. I could of course be wrong in what I say. I do agree with Abi, the magic wears off but the gardening still has to be done.

Re: How many people on TLF

Ive picked pomegranates from the garden this morning. Some juiced and some seeds frozen. (and some of the juice drunk with vodka!)
The last of the chillies are drying, and there are still a few lemons on the trees.
Weve trying to ripen the bananas with some apples.
My husband is working on the third bathroom refurbishment.
I made a big batch of bread dough a couple of days ago, which Ive used for various recipes.
We bought a small oven that is attached to the wood burner, which Im experimenting with.
Were going to a curry night tonight, which I think is allowable if you spend a lot of time in Turkey!
Not exactly the high life, but we like it.

Re: How many people on TLF

How many of our TLF OVERLORDS have places in Turkey ? Martin sold up this week and assuming Freedom 49 has not relieved him of the cash he will also be off to pastures new.
