Signs of the times

Have noticed for the first time signs popping up in Altinkum in Arabic. Lots and lots of young Syrian men on the front, there have been quite a few over the last few months but now there seems to be more than usual. I can see there being fun and games here when all the girls start arriving for there holidays.

Refugees they maybe but many of the local Kurds/Turks they rely heavily on the tourism in the bars, shops & restaurants. Pretty sure it will kick off if ANYTHING untoward happens to a tourist due to a Syrian. You know how it works............business is business.

We have a friend who has a restaurant down there, he told us he didn't mind giving them food left at the end of the day to help them out. The problem was it didn't stop at that, they started demanding food, and begging from European customers ( so much the European customers started staying away) .
These people do nothing to endear anyone towards there plight with actions like this .

I dont think the large groups of young lads I see are the future homeowners of Altinkum.

Re: Signs of the times

Opportunity for some Turks to "Rent Out" apartments A few years ago when I had apt in Altinkum.The Apt below us was unoccupied due to a bereavement.The gentleman died a few months after purchase and the wife had trouble with selling due to names on Tapu etc
Anyway a local "agent" held keys and the apt became residence to restaurant workers. It was sorted when a well known Turk moved in next to us but he sold up however he did deal with the issue.
Sorry but glad I sold up. Just make sure your keyholders are really trustworthy and make sure your home is very secure.
