No adventures yet :)

Started on Friday night from Chennai.Reached the hotel in Austin,Texas Saturday local time. Almost 36 hrs journey including the transit. My team friend and me left the luggage outside and went to the hotel reception. Then we paid and got the keys. When we came out, it was heavily raining- luckily water didn’t go inside our luggage.

Lesson1 : I’m not in Madras.. 🙂
No adventures yet…had many, during my earlier trip four years back 🙂

Sunday, called up Subbu my college classmate and asked for info about shopping malls. Then, went for shopping and bought fruits, milk,bread..etc…
Drank milk without sugar as we forgot to buy it…
I am the one who is teaching cooking for my friend..hahahaha…reviving my cooking skills!!!

Ate bread for today’s breakfast 🙁 Sometime back when my roomie was in diet, he offered me bread. I told him :
“Puli pasichaalum pull thingaathu!!!”

This is the first trip for my friend. Also, he’s a *pure* vegetarian. There were funny conversation at the company cafetaria, when he tried explaining the food he wanted. I can’t write more about him or his adventures…for time being :)))

Here the weather is very pleasant.Can go out without jerkins.
Office is nearby – 20mins walk. It can be reduced to 5mins walk if there is a way to cross the road opp. to our hotel, as people cross road in Chennai. Had to walk to the nearest signal – that takes more time.

Yet to get the phone nums of friends out here and call them.

Some things that are common between Chennai and here :
1) Same homo sapiens sapiens
2) Same earth,sun,moon,stars and constellations
3) Same blog and internet.

Sometimes I get lonely, but it’s nice to be alone.

    >Welcome to this side of the world! Austin is a pretty manageable place, weather-wise. There are several thing you can try out for breakfast. Most of the times the Hotels have a continental breakfast served, if that’s not the case, then try cereals, muffins, doughnuts, waffles, etc. You should be able to get any or all of these at your local grocery store.

    For your veggie friend, ask him to talk to the desis there, most of them would know where to get veggie foods. Unless you prefer cooking and eating by yourself, go out and try out all the cuisines. Since this is a business trip, I believe most of the expenses would be borne by your company, so make use of that. Some suggestions for trying different cuisines: Thai (pretty similar to desi food, dont miss it), Chinese (See if there is a Restaurant by the name P.F. Chang’s – This is a very nice chinese restaurant), Indian (should find a lot of them).

    If you want to find something specific about where to eat/hang out/go out, then let me know and I can find out.
