Hello, I´m helping out some friends to look for a native English Speaker, to talk to a baby (he is almost 1 yr.old) and play with him in English, 3-4 hours each day of the week(except weekends). The baby is an American citizen(born abroad), so the parents want to raise him bilingual. The baby already has a baby-sitter, and there is a cleaner at the house full time too, so this person will only be an ´English conversation buddy´ for the baby. They will pay a salary for this part time job. The job is in Istanbul - Analtolian side. Please contact me at 533-2844764 if you are interested, or email nidatozluklu@yahoo.com Thank you so much!

Have you also heard about Gymboree Play&Music??I am sure most of the expatriate people have been in Gymboree once somewhere or at least bought a Gymboree outfit. I am taking my kids to Erenkoy branch...They are totally having fun.

Your website it really great - and would be wonderful in bookform. In Dubai they have the ”Dubai Explorer” which is upgrade and published each year - it is a must have.... Looking at two of your pages - the ”For Kids Istanbul” and the ”Cinemas”... I have two requests : 1. Where you give ideas on places to go and things to do - could you not add some sort of address/detail and phone number. It´s great to know that there are things to do - but if you are new to Istanbul - it means nothing without some sort of directions/contact number/address. 2. With the movie pages - is it not possible to have a link to the relevant cinema - reflecting the current films showing.??´ .... so what about publishing a ”My Merhaba Explorer” ....
