Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Clive Barker, Çetin Altan, Dostoyevsky, Kafka etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing Santa Maria del Fiore (Venice, Italy) for the first time after taking a random corner at night.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a bit of a nerd with things I geniunely like, so be prepared to be thrown occasional random trivial information at.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Ranting on music, art, politics, food, history, culture, science etc.

I'm not the best cook but I enjoy food in general, so I'd definitely be up for cooking together.

Also I can teach you little bit of Turkish if you're interested. It's quite different from any European language, so people who are into languages usually find it quite peculiar. I heard from a friend that it sounds like a underwater language. Try me and see for yourself.
