Welcome to Pune AJ.

I am from the UK and have been working in Pune for 2 years, and will be settling in Pune with my husband. Is there anything that you particularly would like to know?

Tssk... why do some here get so prickly when an expat asks about meeting expats? It doesn't necessarily mean they're averse to meeting Indians, no? Seems like just a perfectly normal question (And how would an expat already established there not be able to show a fellow expat around, if they're up for it? And maybe they didn't mean exclusively expats, but just didn't phrase it that way?)

It takes a small post count + period of membership for the function to kick in.

(EDIT: Oh, I thought you were a new member. You should meet both these criteria. Maybe you were trying to send one to someone who doesn't? If not, ask one of the mods. Or you didn't have the required nr. of posts yet when you asked it? Look at it again, and tell us if you can now.)

LTurner, you could keep an eye on what's going on at IndiaMike's http://www.indiamike.com/india/india...eetups-t55402/. That was rather sleepy for a while I think, but it looks to be picking up of late; they seem to have just had a successful one, and I think are gearing up for a next one. Expect indeed more Indian members here than expats, I reckon. Any of these meetings anywhere tend to always be fun.

Maybe check also http://www.internations.org/pune-expats, or do a web search on +pune +expats or so, there may be other networks out there.

On going out, not sure how much this will do for you in Pune, but have a look also at http://www.indiamike.com/india/books...dules-t149405/. I've seen that TimeOut Mumbai magazine I mention there do a Pune special once, but not sure if that's a very regular occurence. Pune Burrp or so could hold something for you, the Burrp sites are also mentioned there, or go straight to http://pune.burrp.com/.

Mach,

we are not sleepy at all we arranged 3 meetups in the last couple of months, this has to be a great success rate

Lturner, you are welcome to the next meetup (we are planning for another very soon) if you are in the city, but as Mach said, these meetups are mainly attended by the Indians, but sometimes we do have expats joining in, for example XimeniaX attended yesterday's meetup and she was the only expat in the group, but I don't think she was bored to hell

To respond to your question, do what Mach advised, I think at the Koregaon Park area, you'll find many expats to hang out with.

Hey Saugata, it was a shame I couldn't make it to the last meetup hopefully i will be around for the next one..

I may say i would like to meetup with expats. I would be equally keen to meet up with locals; i'm sure they would know the city far better!

Hi Haylou

I was looking for good places to visit, bars/restaurants, tourist places etc etc...

I also need a skipping rope, and wondered if anyone knew where to find one?
