hey i ve visited turkey and i know almost all territory, except the areas near the mediterranean. I liked very much the landscapes from Trabzon to the georgian, armenian, iranian borders and Tuzgölü. I think living there would be difficult for me except if for a short period. Reasons: some turkish are not quite flexible at thinking, i mean, at the end always appears the "önce vatan" kind of thought. But most people are very warm. If you could modernize yourself a bit, it ll be nice, mainly for you. (that doesnt mean that modernization should be "western style", just a bit of "desideologization" would make it).
