Hi,

I think my next stop is Kayseri at AGU, 3 hours away from Ankara. I have no idea about that place. I don't even know what to think. I know ankara istanbul Izmir are modern cities who stand against the entire religion dilemma. But how is it in Kayseri. Will it be like saudi. You know with people fasting and ladies wearing scarves?

Any idea on rent? Hate moving. [/i]

In all honesty, are you a teacher? Why does it matter to you if there are people wearing scarves? If I were you, rather than asking silly questions, I would make an effort to learn the punctuation rules.

Indeed. To know there are people out there with great creds and teaching ability who are rejected for good jobs or get fired over nonsense; meanwhile, those I'd label 'substandard' somehow maintain job security and always seem to be going to work somewhere after their current contracts end.

Yes, indeedie, the wise man who once said, you can't fool everyone all the time, never came to this place!
Btw, the place of which you ask is conservative, expect to see people fasting, that means you DO NOT eat openly on the street, and ladies wearing not only headscarves but a lot more as well, some may even wear clothes!

I didn't realize the modern cities were against the religion dilemma. What dilemma? I didn't realize there was one.

On a more serious note. I'm American and have lived in Turkey for 7 years now and spent one month in Kayseri. I had no problems with anyone and could live my life how I wanted. This shouldn't be a concern for anyone as far as I can see.

Yes my punctuation is wrong. I'll be more careful.

I'm sorry for causing all this. Thank you for your replies.

Thanks for your reply. I'm glad there's no problem. I've chatted with few Turkish people. They told me all kinds of things... So I just wanted an expats point of view.

RICHARD- not everybody is like you who want to live in harmony. Come on you guys, there are prejudice people.

It's difficult not to ask about these situations. I won't be talking about what I've heard I just wanted a specific answer which I got from shalana.

Yes otterman ollie thank you for pointing out that they were clothes as well.

You guys why do you feel you have to answer posts that bother you as well. Couldn't you just have moved on?

Ok take care bye
