I am considering an expat assignment that will take me to India for the next few years.
Any advice for an American that will help me adjust?
Hi, I will be coming to stay in Hyderabad from the US in about 6 months. Where can I meet other Americans?

Start > Goa or Hyderabad & end >Sri Lanka. I would love a suggested itinerary taking in southern India. In reality I have 2-3 months. Best routes with consideration TO EASE OF transport without much backtracking. Arrival Sept 1 - by myself - pensioner's budget. Can include flights if necessary. NOT TO INCLUDE EAST COAST.
Indicate mode of transit between stops, and how many days likely at each. Thanks to all the kind people out there !!
Emphasis on; 1) MONUMENTS, TEMPLES, FORTS, HISTORY
2) MUDUMALAI & PERIYAR PARKS
3) INTERACTIVITY - BOAT TRIP, BIKING, TRAIN JOURNEY
4) REGION / FROM GOA TO HYDERABAD TO KOCHI TO MADURAI end SRI LANKA
5) OCCASIONAL rest stop at Beach town with access to excellent Indian cuisine
6)Hampi, Badami, Bijapur - maybe tour
Any help is appreciated,
my reply is all east coast......like Sri Lanka, sorry.
58k south of Chennai is Mamallapuram, Mahabalipuram, or Mahabs.
It has a very old sea shore temple & great carvings in a park not far fm the beach. It cost 60 R on the bus fm Chennai. Or you can hire a cab for around 1500R.
Another 60K south of Mahabs is Puducherry.
Sri Lanka is very nice. I landed and had a hotel destination. Nextime I will land and just look for a hotel,,,,,,,
Look Mahabs & Puducherry up on wikitravel or something you like.
Mahabs is also a surfing town and there is an invitational contest the 2nd week of Aug..waves permitting.

I am a US citizen living in India. I plan to go to USA for a visit. My USA driving license expired. Any one who had a similar experience advice me how to get a temporoy license to drive in USA. I was told I may not be eligible to get international driving license from India as I am a US citizen. Welcome suggestions and advice.
As soon as you go to US have some one drive you to the Department of motor vehicles and apply for a License. They give you a temporary license immediately and the permanent one in a week or two. You have to produce your expired license.

I have been a resident of Australia and now shifted to Bangalore for job purpose. I am looking for an best ICSE school for my daughter who was in 3th grade and now going to 4th grade. I heard about a International school named trio world academy. Can anyone suggest me about this school!! What about the fee structure of their ICSE syllabus ?
My son is in 2nd grade at TRIO. We have been pleased with the school so far. He is a day scholar and has only joined this year. The parent teacher meetings are very helpful and informative. They tell us where our child needs to improve and point out his best strengths. His teacher explained about their differentiated learning approach so that he learns at his own pace. What I liked most is that my son is developing an interest towards reading and public speaking. I would like to recommend it to the parents looking for individualized attention and balanced academics and sports.
