I was just awarded a research grant and I'm moving to Konya to live for one year. I will have my husband with me for most of my trip, but I will be alone for the first three months. I'm learning Turkish, but I'm just a beginner. I should also mention that I look very American and young (I'm 25, I look 18). Could I have some general advice about safety, and any customs I should be aware of- for example, I only recently learned that it is illegal to kiss in public in Turkey?
Also, what are the chances I'll find other Americans living there, perhaps teaching English? Expat communities online show very few English speakers living in Konya...
