    Hello New guy here!

    Hello everyone!

    New guy to this chat...I have lived in Europe, (London, Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Stockholm) and Toronto in Canada... so it makes sense that I came to Bangalore and landed a job in international media :)

    Loving this city... (I was born here but my parents moved to London when I was a kid. and then worked for Meda companies for periods from 6 months to 2 years in different cities in Europe... I studied my masters in Toronto and now landed in Bangalore... so I´m a bit local desi, a bit of an expat... hope to meet some fun people around... Cheers

    Sanju.

    Thanks Cyrile... as far as the photo goes... will try once I have unpacked my belongings amongst which I have my hard drive with all my films, series, music and of course photos... right now i am sporting a bit of an unkempt look hehe...

    About what advices could I offer? well what´s helping me so far is browsing a lot online. I have found there to be a good choice of specialised sites such as Times Jobs or Mitula, plus the international ones like Michael Page or Linkedin. ..

    Besides, what I would recommend to any expat to go for a meal at Woodys in Commercial Street and some proper indian shopping (with its haggling), have a coffee in a small hidden hotel just off MG Road.. a real South Indian Coffee... though Coffee and Day is beginning to grow on me... and once you´re done if you start to miss normal hobbies abroad like jogging, you can always dare Cubbon Park, some parts are actually quite nice....

    Have a nice evening guys... off for some drinks now!

    Sanjay.

    Yeah, I'm kind of crazy about travelling and meeting up new people and since my career allows for that then it opens up loads of doors, plus, travelling also males you more creative (at least what I think) since a lot of inspiration comes from seeing diiferent kinds of landscapes, monuments, people etc etc... what about you? how long have you lived in India?

    Sanju.
