One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Life, as a whole...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach lots of things about Turkey and Eskisehir.

Talking about actual history would be enjoying for me and you know, there are lots of things to discuss about Turkey's and world's facts. So be ready because i can ask many things about your point of view and also i can talk as much as you listen about those i mentioned.
I like talking about the different cultures, so i am ready for listening you for hours :)
