I would like a place to spend the winter at, november through april. I would like to live in the tropics (or close), near the sea, with a swimming pool, and with everything within walking distance. How is Visakhapatnam, and Andhra Pradesh? Is the climate okay? Medical care? Crime?
Should I look for a hotel, an apartment, or perhaps something in between? I'd rather not spend more than $1000 dollars per month on acommodation, preferably half or less. I need wide doors and large bathrooms.
In my country I get money from the state to hire people to help me with the things I can't do myself due to my disability. I need help with virtually everything. I'm thinking of hiring people myself. What do you think that would cost (let's say it's a fulltime job)? I need a service-minded person, perhaps with some medical training.
In Thailand (where I am now), there are lots of motorcycles with side-wagons. I'm working on modifying one, so I can drive my wheelchair up on a ramp. That seems the easiest and cheapest way to get around. How is it in India?
If you have any other advice, it's greatly appreciated.
