  • Description

    Hi, I'm Fırat, from Istanbul, Turkey. I graduated from the state conservatory as a modern dancer. I do dance choreographies in the field of contemporary dance. I also have a yoga instructor certificate which I got in India, however am lacking in practical teaching experience and would love to have the oppotunity to practice :) I'm not a chef, but I cook.. and cook well as friends say. As a vegetarian, I'm better at the vegetarian kitchen, yet honestly I can cook non-veg meals too but not that sure about the preparation-preparing... I understand little from the electricity and gardening, home scale, yet I am handy and work well with my hands.. My mother tongue is Turkish and I am confident in writing, reading, listening and speaking English and and understand a little bit of Spanish:) I'm open to learning new things and can adopt fast : )
    My name is Andrea. I was born in Maine, USA, and continued on to study psychology and sociology in Connecticut, USA. Since then, I have been living and working in different countries. Firat and I met in Istanbul where we have been living together for the last eight years. We would like to spend the summer meaningfully engaged while sharing space and time in fresh surroundings... now here we are...
