Joined interest based clubs where I could find them, like e.g. running clubs, photography, kung-fu, cooking etc.<br />
<br />
Simply talked to everybody and never closed myself to any group or 'clique'<br />
<br />
Went in and kept an open mind about people. No snap judgment on characteristics or personalities.<br />
<br />
Observed and asked a lot of questions about traditions, ways of living that I found odd or different than my own. This is everyday stuff like sweet vs savory french toast. Meal timings, punctuality etc

<br />
I found making (long term) friends very difficult, but it takes time I guess.<br />
<br />
Good luck. :)
