April 1, 2018 at around 10 in the evening we bid farewell to our families and embark in a month long trip to the west.This was my first time in Qatar Airlines. Excited and enthralled, we departed from TIA in Airbus A320. 8 Hours transit in Doha was a little too much but we were determined that nothing would stop us; not even the uncomfortable seats in the airport-waiting-area which was our only option for a quick power nap. I enjoyed my flight from Doha to Boston with cognac sips and the amazing view of the ural mountain range. I managed to click few shots as Binita obliged to switch seat; super comfy middle for her window one. The view was mesmerising.
Abanish Dai with a welcoming smile received us from the airport and took us to Lexington office. After a brief meeting with the team there, we headed to Ashay dai’s home.
Weekdays : Ashay dai’s Castle To Deerwalk Inc in Suresh Dai’s Chariot
Our weekdays usually started with Black Coffee and Standup meetings early in the morning.
We would then prepare a task plan for the day and have a brief call with the team here in Nepal.
Friday mornings were exception – Bagel with Bacon and Cheese spread to start the day brought in weekend vibes.
Lunch time was like potluck lunch party almost everyday.
We would usually take leftovers from last night for our lunch but at times we had to manage with Waiwai, if not Rebecca’s.
Evenings were generally TJ Maxx visits, Burlington Mall tour or Costco grocery shopping.
Weekend 1 : New York City
Yellow Cabs – we almost wouldn’t have gotten into, if Manish dai hadn’t panicked and started running. After covering 6 to 7 blocks we realized that we wouldn’t be able to make it on time to catch our bus back to Boston.

I really doubt anyone except for Nizu reached this part of the blog.She has to because she edits these.
However, If you are reading this – and you have plans to visit Boston – Quincy Market and Quincy are two different places. The redline from Alewife will directly take you to Park Street. Get down there and walk few blocks east and you are there.
