When you’re in a new locale, remember to learn as much as you can by asking others, exploring, (including making wrong turns) and getting outside your own comfort zone.
1. Take the public transportation: here it’s a blue bus and/or a silver taxi.
2. Ask your new friends what’s their favorite dish soap, floor cleaner, grocery store and movie theater. While I love the exploration of it all, this may cut off some “research” time.
3. Make as many friends as you can and trust they will leave the area one day. As an expat, there are two rules: love all and love quickly.
4. Have FUN everyday!
