Bombay Jules: I found it easy to meet people and make friends through volunteering and just getting out there. Organisations such as Internations, Mumbai Connexions, The Cigar Club and the American Women’s Club also makes it possible to make new friends very quickly. They organise a lot of social events and clubs and are very friendly. I have also met quite a few people through my blog and the blogging network is also very friendly. And it is always easy to set up your own clubs through Facebook – I set up an amateur photography group with a few other like-minded ladies for example.
