Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Language and cultural exchange (Arabic, German)
Language exchange, long term friendship
Music, Movies, and Books
So much in love with US Western and Lebanese&Egyptian&Iranian movies. Khalil Gibran & Nagib Mahfouz and Amin Malouf fans are especially welcome.
Teach, Learn, Share
Can help with Turkish and English. I am into investment funds & I can share my expertise on that. I like to talk about finance & economy &culture but not politics.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can be a good company for those who are willing to know more about Istanbul and Turkey. Practicing Arabic and German is a top priority but welcoming other encounters as well. Foreigners definitely have hard to times to find a decently English-speaking local to give them a better understanding of the local culture and dynamics. If you only want to walk around major touristic landmarks to take some photos, than I may not be the best person lol
