I haven’t posted in the last few days, as I was running around. But, I wanted to make sure I post at least this one tonight.
After a few hectic days in
Frozen Charles River, which separates Boston from Cambridge. This river and its surroundings are generally a beehive of activity during summer days.
I was told this place would generally be buzzing with activity near the Cambridge side mall.. but was deserted due to the unusually cold weather
To make matters worse, I landed in
Renting a car for a short stay in Boston downtown area was a mistake. Not only did the weather make it difficult to driver around and look for the address, the parking situation made things really worse.
Some lessons from this visit:
- Check the weather and dress accordingly. It is OK to the over do than be left trembling in the middle of the night.
- Use Taxi / public transport for short trips to Boston downtown area. Stiff parking rates make renting a car unattractive, particularly if you are staying in the Boston / Cambridge downtown area.
You travelled to U.S keeping your favorite weather in your pocket and unleashed that wherever you went. Even when you did not carry weather protecting garments, you did weather through those and accomplish what you set out.ReplyDelete
Good luck in your next jouney to another continent this week after North America.
One question how do you manage so much travel ? You seem to be the guy who livesReplyDelete
"Kaalai japanil coffee
maalai newyork-il cabaret

But this year's winter has been brutal both to health and to the pocket. I paid $250 for 1 month's heating bill in December. January is much worse and I dread it.
This has been the longest trip yet for me.. I am on the third leg my trip, in Columbus now.. and two more to go.. Toronto & Beijing.. will be glad when I get home on 2/9..
I wish.. it was coffee, jolly stuff.. but far from it. !!!!
Jokes apart, Boston was really tough for me.. I am dreading that weather in Toronto..
I have the same question as Karthik, how on earth do you get to travel so much?ReplyDelete
Hmm.. depending on how you look at it.. it the 'upside / downside' of this 'new' flat world we live in and global nature of the IT business..
