Anyone living in this area? We plan to buy a home there, did some looking last year ad found it lovely. We were meant to move this autumn to Istanbul but had a change of plan and will remain in Dubai for 2 more years but now pla to buy the house anyway in advance. Can any expats give me an idea how is life there?Do you make friends there easily? What habbies do you have or your children? Interested to know about the social life, schools for kids (ours are almost 3 year daughter and soon to be born baby). Anyone lives in Istanbul istanbul development by Yapi Kredi> How is it? OK, LOTS o fquestions - would appreciate any answers!
