Based on my travels including working and living in around 18 countries, I can definitely say Turks and Turkish culture is the worst.

They hate everything foreign with a vengeance.

They can't live with Armenians, Arabs, Greeks, Persians, Kurds, Germans, Indians, Pakistanis... And yet everyone else is the problem, not themselves.

Their language is from Central Asia and their religion is from thr Middle East. Basically a fake nation, with a despot corrupt dictator who made his beginning scamming a few liras off of each metro ticket when he was mayor of Istanbul.

The whole country is under a Stockholm syndrome delusional mindset where everyone and everything is the problem except their own politicians and bureaucrats.

I was in Mexico city last week where a crew of around dozen Turkish airlines pilots and flight attendants trashed the entire bar in downtown (Pata Negra), after getting drunk. They have absolutely no respect for any other cultures.

The cost of life can be cheap but the quality of the products doesn’t match the quality. It might be cheap but filled with toxic chemicals that are below EU standards…

You have purchasing 'power' as low. You mean high. The amount you can buy is higher.

As most of us do not live in NYC, it would be far more relevant to have variable BASE line. Since i live in Cebu I cannot imagine NYC's environment let alone relate to it.
I'm delighted and applaud you on having created this site.
