It is so nice to hear from you. There is a bunch of translators (including myself) living in Izmir. We tried to organize Powwows in the past couple of years but could not manage to gather in Izmir. I hope we can get together this time.
I have never been to South America but I know it is lovely there. Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Columbia all sound exciting to me. You are lucky to live in Argentina. Hope to see you in Izmir soon.
Dear Atil, Merhaba!
In fact I'm going to Manisa this August 23th, and back to Istanbul on August 28th! Nevertheless, I've been invited to Ramazan Bayram in a town near Manisa, thus I don't think I will be able to go to Izmir in June. Initially, my plans were to come back to Turkey on August 8th (a 31 hours train from Villach (Austria) to Edirne!), to spend a couple of days in Istanbul and them going to Izmir, where I would take a week of Turkish lessons... Nevertheless, today I got an email from Optima trains informing me that they have changed the schedule, thus I don't known when I will be back in Turkey, and all my plans are changing!
I will update my time schedule in Turkey as soon as I have more news! I would like to visit my colleages from Izmir too!
Apologies for not writing in Turkish. My Turkish language is poor! Not even "biraz Turkçe!".
