  1. I am from Costa Rica, I lived alone in India 7 months when I was 24 years old and I think all the advice you are giving is excellent for a woman. I also hope someone had told me about this before my trip, I had to learn it the hard way! I identify a lot with your experience, many of the things that happened to you happened to me too. But honestly I felt secure in India, some times even more than in my own country. Great post.

  2. Good tips! I like reading something that actually recommended Bollywood. I watch a ton of Bollywood (yeah, mild obsession – I just really enjoy it) and while its definitely not indicative of everyday life, but it can be a big part of the culture. Paying attention to the way women dress, and even picking up on a few words of Hindi, can be really helpful.

  3. “You really know your stuff… Keep up the good work!”

  4. Stay off the street after dark. Take a taxi or rickshaw to a restaurant as Indian women do.
