New but not so new

Hi guys
My name is Andy. Been lurking around on here for a while because we were looking to buy a house in Turkey. Found a wealth of information which helped immensely. I am not a newbie to Turkey. I worked in Diyarbakir for seven years from 1996 to 2002. Loved the place and the people. It could be a little frustrating at times but once you know how to treat the people they are your best friends for life. So I eventually got married to my wonderful Turkish wife of 15 years. We have since lived in 7 different countries and had a wonderful time in most of them. We finally bought a house in Torba, Bodrum last summer. I think we avoided most of the pitfalls because of what I had read here. We did have one lawyer try to screw us on wills but we spotted the issue quite quickly. We were very lucky in our purchase, all the correct paperwork in place. Bank transfer done with a couple of small issues on timing but otherwise great. I am in republic of Congo at the moment but will go back to Torba in 3 weeks for my summer break. Looking forward to doing nothing for a month. I am sure there will be a honey do list

That's my introduction of myself.
PS I don't get involved in the politics
