Sorry, as a bricklayer no chance. Unless as one off.



Any bricks layed (not in any way you would accept) are done by Turkish labour at minimum rates (about 3/hour if lucky) and more than likely as illegal labour.



If you were to work legally you would require a work permit from "your" employer.



Sorry if that sounds negative but it is. Most building work here is done by low rate Turkish labour of limited skills.

Hi Purpleronnie



I would recommend renting for at least a year, then you will have a good knowledge of if to stay and buy.



good luck

Hi purpleronnie,



there are a number of links on the forum for good eating houses in and around Alsancak where the Riverside is situated. If you are booked into the Riverside it is probably on B&B basis and that is the best bet as when we stayed there in 2008 we thought the evening meals were limited. You can have snacks in the rooms as there is a small cooker (rings) and fridge but no oven or microwave. There are one or two restaurants within walking distance one being Guido's (an Italian place run by two very nice people) and a place on the road down from the Riverside (name escapes me) but we had an excellent meal in there, but you will be spoilt for choice.

Guido's just down the road from Riverside, great food and service, thinking of making a living (supplementing your income/pension), Forget it?, 4 years on and the dreams starting to wilt, if you have dosh 600 per month(at the moment!!), its a great life, general pace of life is easy, lack of, fear of crime= even better, but please do your homework first, Lilli and Guido have been here long enough(keep wanting to put a 'T' before the h), to put you on the straight and narrow

Message 8 - speaking personally, I would say that 600 is a very conservative estimate. Are you including all utilities, etc. in this amount?

600 per month? Including utilities? I think not. You can double that figure.

Purpleronnie - the nearest restaurant in walking distance from Riverside is the Acmenya & they also do car rental. Riverside do too but I found them to be more expensive than others. Ibo taxis in Alsancack also do car hire.

Park View is the closest to Riverside and will be (should be) open in June. We have had a couple of really good meals there and it's a nice bar too.
