My name is Sagar. Just landed in Almaty last Thursday, do not speak a word of the Russian or the local language, do not know a soul on a personal basis. I guess that pretty much sumarises my current situation here.
I haven't found it easy to talk to locals here either, unless I met them through someone (which so far has been only at work). I guess it is primarily due to the fact that most people here are shy? and not many speak English.
So...I thought I'd look up expats on here and see how it goes...looking to meet and get to know new people.
