Dear Ashima,

I am glad to hear that you are moving to San Diego. I can’t wait to see you. Since you want to know about the housing and schooling options available here, I thought I would write a letter.

Basically two types of housing are available here. Condominiums are single houses owned by an individual. Apartments are the other option and they are owned by a company. The rental rates are in the US $ 1200 – 2000 range. Generally speaking, rental rates are high in neighbourhoods situated in a good school district. There are some excellent schools here so do you have to worry about the education of your children.

As for making friends, well, it is not hard at all. San Diego has a vibrant community of Indians. Just visit the website sandiegodesi.com to find other Indians interested in making friends. You can also join San Diego desi community on Facebook and you will be notified of local events where you can find other people.

Hope this information is helpful to you.

See you soon in our town!!

Warm regards
