We lived there from 1985-86 and loved it. We were there when we bombed Libya and oh boy was that exciting! The shopping was great, the food was good, and the dollar was doing great. I had a wonderful maid - they were real cheap then. The Turks were nice, but NEVER in a hurry. Shopping took forever.

My son-in-law went TDY there a couple of years ago and it sounded like much was the same. We lived off base for a few months - not a great experience. Very different from the way we lived. Then we moved on base to what was new housing then. It was gorgeous! We had a large family, my ex was a captain, and the only big home available was on Colonel's row. Now that was interesting. We lived across the street from his boss. Had to make sure the kids and I behaved. LOL

Have fun!
