My journey from Kathmandu began on November 22 and, after flying for more than 24 hours, I reached Boston. Since I had heard that it is very cold in Boston during winter, I had packed my luggage with warm clothes and snow boots. I hoped that there would be snow when I reached Boston but when my plane landed I was quite sad to realize that I was the only person at the airport wearing winter gear. Anyway, my sadness turned to happiness when I met Sanjeev Tuladhar and Manish Luintel who took me to Sanjeev’s apartment.
The next day, I went to the office in Lexington and happily met our US team members. The US office was like a little Nepal in Massachusetts. People were always ready to share knowledge and answer questions. I learned lots of new things.
It was a short visit but I was able to experience Thanksgiving, late night Black Friday shopping, Christmas lights, the rush of New York and the atmosphere of Washington DC. I will miss the morning milk-tea and lunch-time gossip of the Lexington office.
It never snowed throughout my visit but I am glad that I got the chance to feel the warmth of the US. I would like to thank Sanjeev and Sagar Adhikari for the great hospitality and Deerwalk for providing me with this opportunity.
