An American in Istanbul (cue music :))
If you ever lived in, or visited Turkey, one of the things you’re most likely to talk about are its people. You probably have a lot of nice things to say about them – maybe how they’re always ready to help each other, or even strangers; maybe how dedicated they are to their families and friends… You might give examples of the legendary Turkish hospitality… But how about the things that bother you? Or confuse you? Especially after settling there and trying to make it home, what are the things that you notice about Turkish people that you don’t quite get, or like? What kinds of things make it not so easy to live with the Turks?
A few things we’ve heard from our American interviewees are: it’s hard to get used to the stares – people just look at you, if you look different. The crowds, the crowded streets in Istanbul. And one last example is the stereotypes some people believe about women from certain countries.
What’s your experience?
