31 years ago I lived in Turkey for a year and loved it. Since I love to communicate, I taught myself Turkish, believe it or not by watching cartoons with my youngest, the dictionary and simply making an effort. By the time I left I was so pretty fluent , sad had no one to speak to amd lost it. Loved the country and the people. I live in Texas and prefer to communicate with someone in Texas. For fun I Love to travel, do a lot of volunteer work, nature. Laid back and down to earth, am content with what I have. Treat everyone with respect and expect the same. Very calm, no anger issues and dislike fights and arguments.
