A fantastic blog I came across before I moved here. Wonderful pictures and a unique take on the Indian expat experience.

This blog was like a guide & support for me before I moved to Mumbai in January and I've found myself returned several times since. All of the issues an curiosities that I had from finding a house, to dating an Indian, to politics & cultures of India & general information- nothing is out of bounds. More than a good read, the blog is like a shared discussion. Sharells thought-provoking posts stir some great discussions'& debates among readers!
