    Hi Girls, Ladies :)

    I m currently living in Dubai and soon moving with my 5 year old to Springboro near Dayton. Im really nervy. Dont have a clue as to how life would be. Could you guide me on how to go about settling down as in knowing people, how to go around, the schools. My husband is already there so house is not the issue. I want to know if one gets jobs in Dayton area (Im a business writer,). Also would it be a good idea to study , I plan to get into counselling. I want to make loads of new friends and engage in activities like sports , dance etc.

    Pl guide

    Shveta711,

    Welcome to Ohio. If I am not mistaken, Springboro comes between Dayton and Cincinnati and you have already said that your husband has a place. There is a huge Indian community in both the places. Dayton temple would be your first best bet. There is a big temple in Cincinnati as well, but it will be far for you. There are a couple of Indian stores and retaurants as well in Dayton and you could always come to Cincinnati - meaning Mason and Westchester areas.

    As for school, your house will define the school your child will go to - check the county you are located in, then you will automatically get to know about the schools, googling helps. Public schools are quite good and it is not going to be hard adjusting there.

    As said earlier, start with the temple and I am sure you will be able to gather the required info soon. As for weather, winters tend to get pretty cold, so come prepared for a nice fall and then a cold winter. About jobs, there are many employers in the area, it all depends on your visa status. For studies, there are a couple of good colleges in Dayton and ofcourse plenty of opportunities in Cincinnati as well.

    Don't be nervy and I am sure you will love the place. Good luck with everything.

    Hi all,
    I am in mason Cincinnati.. i rally have to tell u the experiences v have faced in mason.. there is a restaurant called NEW KRISHNA in sharonville...If u are an Indian u will be treated there as a dust.. if u are a foreigner u will be a king there.. twice v hav been there.. v said thankyou to him he dint even respond.. again v went there for lunch he said that "i will give u 30 mins u should eat before that".. no hospitality to guest... they are waste.. but the food is really fantastic..
    MIDAS..... AUTO CENTRE... i beg u dont ever take ur car there even for a oil change.. bcoz of midas v are completely vexed.. v went for oil change to him he dint put the cap properly it seems .. while coming in high way our car shuted down.. no brake no start.. when v checked wit the mechanic nearby v came to know the midas was the reason.. ENGINE FAILURE.. so v had to pay 5000 dollars for this.. at last arguing with midas v got it done for 2000 dollars.. even its not our mistake .. he accepts and did this for us for half money.. now still our beautiful car has some noise.. so ve are completely out of mind..
    moral: dont goto midas... make sure ur oil cap is fitted properly.. dont run ur car if check oil light is on...:drowning
