About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

stopped drinking milk at the age of 2. tea is far better!

Teach, Learn, Share

Lessons I can give: how to make a turkish coffee or some simple meal from turkish couisine, basic turkish, intro to belly dancing, some folk dances, how to play backgammon like a turkish guy, anything which happens that you always wanted to learn and by luck i know. no i can't teach you how to ride a camel sorry :p

I am interested in learning practically anything.
