Pratik Joshi’s US Visit

“Travelling – it leaves you speechless and then turns you into a storyteller”. – Ibn Batuta

True to the saying everyone who has gone for an official visit in Boston, MA has written a blog that tells a unique story about their travel experience. One destination, hundreds of stories to tell. It definitely is a unique experience.

Having said that when the Wright Brothers invented the aeroplane they also unintentionally introduced a new form of the disorder called the “Jet Lag” which makes a traveller sleepy during day time and wide awake during night time for a prolonged period of time. A quick adjustment to the sleep cycle might not be every traveller’s forte and I’m pretty sure every traveller struggle with the Jet Lag problem.

Sanjay Shrestha, Ramesh Sapkota and myself, were scheduled to stay in the Lexington office for the month of June. We landed at the Boston Logan Airport on June 2 at 1420 hrs. I and Ramesh were scheduled to stay at Ashay’s home while Sanjay dai was scheduled to stay in an extended stay.

Me and Ramesh (my buddy for the month of June) were staying at Ashay’s place, my home for the month of June. Ashay and Ekta were one of the nicest hosts and their place always felt like home, especially Ekta’s super awesome hospitality. They had everything from groceries to beverages to anything you can think of. To be honest I thought Ashay’s cooking would produce “at least edible” foods but I was taken a little aback when he prepared quite delicious food.

I’m taking my chances and following with the fact that “A picture speak a thousand words”.

Lexington Office
Work became fun because of colleagues. I would like to thank each and everyone for making me feel at home, inviting us for dinner, and checking up every now and then to see if I am still jet lagged or not!

Boston
A city with culture and history where there is something going on every day!

New York
This city neither sleeps nor stops. It seems everyone is in a hurry and the complex subway system makes it even more complicated. I found it really loud and noisy. We made a good decision about visiting Niagara Falls.

Maryland
Family time made this a trip to remember where I got to meet my relatives in person after more than a decade.

Washington DC
The capital city definitely had interesting stories to tell via the monuments, buildings, and museums.

New Hampshire
The tax-free state which is a sanctuary for people who love to shop. Also, a nice beach makes this place worth the visit. I was busy shopping which is why I don’t have any photos of this place.

Maine
Went to Cape Elizabeth upon my friend’s suggestion. The lighthouse was wonderful and the freshly prepared pizza made it even better.

Finally, I would like to thank Muna Bhauju and Rudra Dai for inviting us to dinner and Abanish dai for driving us to Rudra dai’s humble abode.
