Because my father had a heart attack and I had to return to the U.S.. Unfortunately, life throws us curve balls. I don't believe that is something I should be ashamed of, but thanks.

Ghost-

I received $350.00 a month, and also free rent in a four bedroom apartment (usually shared with another teacher when available, but not during my stay). The apartment was not in that great of condition, but was tolerable and across the street from the school. The pay is not that great for our standards, but doctors often receive 400.00 a month, so according to Turkish standards it is very good pay. I was primarily there for the experience and for my love of the country and culture, so at the time pay was secondary.

The name of the manager while I was at Uzay was Ilyas Yilmaz and he seems to welcome any good, hard working English speaking teachers -- Kayseri is not a choice location for many teachers, so they are needed.

I learned enough Turkish to get by while I was there.

The school conditions were average, but as in most jobs, the people in your environment seem to make or break it -- the students and other employees made it very comfortable.

There are few bars, no fitness rooms, and very little entertainment (other than one theater) in Kayseri, and it is quite conservative -- the streets are dead quiet by ten at night. The people seem to work twelve hours a day and live to work -- although that is not expected of the teachers. The people in Kayseri primarily go out to eat, take long walks, smoke, drink tea and picnic for entertainment.

Ghost, on your behalf, Richard and I have done some extensive research. The toilet paper provided for you is pink.
Any more questions ? If so then send them by pm and spare the rest of us old grouches this time-wasting trivia that you will obviously never at on.
