Literally and symbolically, Turkey is the country where “East meets West” because it is situated between Europe and Asia. Therefore, Turkish lifestyle is a blend of Asian and European traditions and a mix between the Christian West and the Muslim world.
Take Istanbul, for example. Fourteen million people make their homes in Istanbul among the crumbling fortresses, churches, and mosques, mixed with modern hotels, shopping centers, and commercial skyscrapers. As you move through the crowded streets, you will see tattooed and pierced teenagers walking near burka-clad women. Everyone in Turkey must blend religious conviction with modernity.
The opportunities here are strategic and influential. Turkey is the perfect place for a person wanting to live peacefully among a rich traditional culture while bringing hope for the future.
