You don’t need to have all the answers, but you should have all the resources to know what to do and who to call in certain situations?

And in case you were wondering we have western toilets and hot water.

As with most Indian homes, there is no washing machine at the iSpiice house. You will have to get used to the Indian way of washing your clothes by hand and drying.
