    Hi all
    I have been unsuccessful in my applications to medicine this year so I am taking a gap year and reapplying.
    In this time i will be spending 3 months in Delhi doing volunteer work in hospitals and HIV clinics. I will be going alone and don't know anyone out there. Im sure it will be an amazing experience but I'm really worried I'm going to spend my evenings eating alone in restaurants or with takeaways in my room (I'm staying in a hotel). I cant really imagine making friends in Hospitals and HIV clinics, Or am I completely wrong? Has anyone done anything like this before? Any tips? thanks

    Will there be other volunteers in a similar position to you there? I.e. Is it organised through an agency?

    I used to live in Mumbai so I have got this work through friends and Family connections, I don't think there will be other volunteers and It have been quite a long precess to get approval for me to work in this hospital.
