A fresh, vinegar-based examination of life

Things you do to prepare to go live in India

Posted by Chris on September 6, 2007

turns out, a lot more than I expected.

Go to a doctor and get vaccines (three) and prescriptions (two)
Suspend your cell phone service (and still pay $10/mth + taxes)
Put your car insurance on all the minimums and tell them you will be storing it (70% refund when I return)
Buy a plane ticket that avoids 6 hour layovers
Figure out how you are going to do banking/get money there (compare the international fees of your cards/banks)
Buy an Amtrak ticket to get to Chicago
Change your mailing address with everyone that send you mail/get off mailing lists

Things yet to do
Receive VISA
Buy luggage
Get travel sized shampoo, toothpaste, etc…
Buy insect repellent with DEET (apparently this is important, why didn’t I ever hear of this DEET stuff while I was growing up amidst the Great Dismal Swamp??)
Find digital camera
