Can anyone tell me what India is like...

Im moving there soon and I want to know as much as I can about it. Specially Chennai please. Thats where im going and I have NO idea what is waiting for me. My mother and I are afraid of leaving here and starting something new.

Im 15 and Im half american, so I would be going to the American school in Chennai... but I really dont want to because they only have 350 students...are there any other schools with the american  program that I could go to.

Anything you can tell me about there would be appreciated

To give you an idea :

Houses/Apartaments in Chennai, Schools, The people, the language, the dress, the beach??

anything at all. ! thank you

wow, you have to move to India??? I want to move to India but nobody lets me. Cry

I don't remember much about India because I was only 6 when I moved to USA. But I would dress conservative for the most part in India, unless the part you move to is okay with it.

well i was in Indian school couple of yrs ago, but i lived in northern India, so like i know absolutely nothing about chennai.but if u wanna no about Indian schools in general then feel free to ask.
about clothes..well i have friends in india who basically wear the same clothes we wear here.but i agree with rimi they are more conservative in that sense.

I don't think I would immediately wear the skirt and tank top because you don't know how people well react. You can wear jeans and a short sleeve top without any issues. But I would save the tank top till you know what kind of clothing is acceptable in the area you live. You don't want to start on the wrong foot.

I personally don't wear sari's because to me they look to complicated. I do like to wear the punjabi suits because they are comfy and easy to wear. So you might want to look into those.

And yes it is going to be scorching. I would recommend taking sun block and bug spray. Lots of it.
