Shekhar Basnet’s US Visit

It was raining the day I landed at Boston and my first thought was “Oh lord, it’s monsoon here as well”. How wrong I was. By a lucky chance, the days I spent in Boston were very pleasant, not hot and not cold as well, although the folks there said it should have been a bit hot. Well, I was not to complain about the change in weather. There’s not much to mention about the flight which was uneventful except for my unsuccessful attempt at keeping a few millimeters of personal space between this huge lady who was spilling all over my seat and myself without much success. By the way, do you know there’s an electric train running inside the Doha Airport terminal building from one end to another??? Talk about development!!! It’s such a huge structure but one does not get lost because it’s so well managed with full of information, whereas over here a gate sign was pointing to a toilet.

Bimal Pant’s US Visit

Traveling to the United States was my first international visit so I was eager for the experience. On June 29, 2019, I along with my colleagues Jeevan Timilsina and Harish Thagunna started our journey from Tribhuwan International Airport. We had a long transit of 17 hours, so we got plenty of time to rest in Doha, Qatar. We were picked up by the hotel representative at Hamad International Airport. Our stay was at the hotel Concorde International. The hotel was big and nice. We enjoyed swimming in the backyard of the hotel for an hour.

When I was packing bag for my second visit to the US, first thing that came to mind was the weather of Boston. The heavy snowfall and extreme cold Boston the last time I visited was all over my mind. Weather prediction for the Month of July was high of 28 degree C and low 19 which was a sigh of relief.

Rajiv Manandhar’s US Visit

I was quite happy to have the opportunity to visit the US for the second time and meet everyone in our US office. Even though this was a very short trip of only 2 weeks, I got the most out of it. I reached Boston on May 19. Since it was spring, the weather was very pleasant during my stay. I got to enjoy a warm and sunny weather throughout my visit. I stayed in Ashay’s home. Ashay and his wife were very welcoming and helpful. During my stay, I traveled using Uber many times and I enjoyed talking to the Uber drivers and listening to their stories.
