Welcome to the Bombay Expats Wiki!

This is a collaborative website for the members of the Bombayexpats Yahoo Group to share their expertise and recommendations for living in Bombay. All members of the Bombayexpats Yahoo Group are welcome and encouraged to add information to this site.

 

What is this site for?

This wiki is a complement to the mailing list -- a place for us to capture answers to frequently asked questions, and to provide reviews and reference information useful for new and old expats alike. This site is public-facing and is intended as a resource for everyone, but only members of the Yahoo Group can edit it.

 

Arrey, yaar! What is a "wiki" anyway?

A wiki is just a website that anyone (with the password) can edit and add new pages to.
