I am living alone with my cat,dog and chickens in small village which is close to touristic Yesiluzumlu district and Fethiye.
In the village the population is mixed ...besides the village people there are British people settled there and there are people from big cities of Turkey ....that is this village is a escape place from metropolitan centers.
This area is covered with intense forest so there are many nice trekking and hiking routes.The area is very close to sea and I am going to the sea so often in the summer time and playing beach volley.
I am doing small scale organic gardening for myself and for my guests. I have olive trees and different kinds of fruit trees. In my garden I am trying to improve the local seeds in my garden. So I am vegeterian and try to get my food from my garden.
Besides gardening I am doing some wood work and love to play with wood to create furniture.
I am an Author ...have some published books and still continue to write.
I am learning English and would like to improve it. I am good in Turkish and Kurdish. I will be happy to have volunteers who are good in teaching English and eager to learn my languages. I also will be pleased to volunteers who are playing some musical instruments ,have artistic skills , doing yoga and/or mediation since my house/garden is suitable to all these activities.
