    Default Hello from Istanbul, Turkey

    I'm from Istanbul, Turkey. I am not keeping bees at the time being because it's just not possible in the midst of a big city, where I live, but I'm related with the subject in some ways. I'm impressed with the intellectual level of a number of threads on this forum and decided to register.

    Unfortunately, I'll remain a listener mainly.

    Nice to meet you.

    Great to have you here. If you can describe how beekeeping is different in Turkey than in other countries, I'd love to hear about it.

    I was in Istanbul this last March. I saw a lot of flat roofs. I'll be you could keep bees on one of the roofs with no problems with people.

    I have 12 hives on a flat rooftop in the middle of San Francisco with no problems. No one knows they're there!!

    Nice to hear from you all!

    @AmericasBeekeeper, Specialkayme, WWW, Jaseemtp
    Thank you for warm greetings.

    @heaflaw, BGhoney
    I would like to write something to the extent I know on beekeeping practices in Turkey and the flora/honey sources here in my country, when there'll be a related topic. Please feel free to contact me if you have a specific question. In case you start a Turkey-related thread, you may warn me, as well.

    @Charlie B
    Hi Charlie! I'm really impressed with your practice: Some kind of "covered bee-action" in a city with a population of 7-8 million! I always highly admire such "urban guerilla attitudes". I'll search the forum for "metropolitan sytle beekeeping practices". My concern mainly is not legal but the well-being of the bees.

    @Michael Bush
    I wish I knew about you before and host you here in Istanbul. I hope you were pleased with your visit. Next time, be my guest please! Your experience, knowledge and views are of great value for me.

    The people in Turkey are very nice. The architecture was awesome. Istanbul is an amazing place.

    That would be nice.

    Welcome! My dad lives in Antalya from the pictures he sends it sure looks like a nice place. I hope you will give urban beekeeping a try. If folks can keep them in the heart of New York City you should be able to keep bees anywhere.

    Hi Kitty! I'm interested in trying urban beekeeping but I still can't figure out how. I even don't have a flat roof and my neighbourhood is not a place -let's say- similar to some area bordering Central Park of NY.

    Nice to meet you Beeophyte. Its interesting and nice to hear that your dad lives in Antalya. Hope to see you here, at least for a visit, as well. Don't hesitate to contact me if there will be a need for help for your dad. Regarding beekeeping here in my house in Istanbul: All the friends here in this forum encourages me; I'll seriously think about it.

    I remember Istanbul well. Cycled through there several times a year over several years headed to a site in eastern Turkey. The mission was monitoring the Russion space launches. Was proud to be selected to man the console for the launch of Sputnic. Anybody remember Sputnic?

    Also the location of my most embarrassing moment, ever. Had to do with breakfast with a flight attendant at the Hilton. Too ugly to relate.

    I am very glad to have a staunch ally in the Muslim world. Sorry about straying from pleasent greetings.

    If others keep bees in big cities, maybe Marenostrum can also try it in Istanbul, and so join the ranks of countless urban beekeepers?
