A Solo Girl’s Guide to Couchsurfing (Even if you're not trying to save money, couchsurfing is a great way to meet people who love travel and sharing their town. http://Couchsurfing.org also has an events section for each city.)

I don’t know how to dress.”******** India is conservative, but there are so many different style icons and types of fashion here just like anywhere else, and not all popular styles keep the woman covered up like you would imagine.
