Mixed Emotions!

Its totally different here...sab log ultey hai!!! Driving rules/postal rules/switchboards/door locks.

Now I'm days in this alien country, here in their official documents they use the word 'Alien' a lot, like in immigration form/ in W4 form for salary n tax calculation form/ in Social security number form only option for me to tick was 'Alien with lawful permission to work" .
But I call them aliens, WEIRD ALIENS :-)

Very dry people I must say, for me someone who has spent is whole life in shor-sharaba of Delhi this place is like ..i dunno i cannot even think of any comparison. Its sooooo shaaaant, na banda n parinda...specially on weekends.

I'm missing home, everything about home. Well, wifey will join me here on 19th, so I'm just waiting for her, only motivation to come to office, make meals etc etc is to pass time as quickly as possible and so that 19th comes soon.

Well, I'm not blaming the people here or cursing my decision to leave the "comfortable life" in India, I took that decision and I fully stand by it. At the same time One thing is very clear that this is not my kind of place.

And on top of it laptop crashed last Friday night :-( , and yaha koi "nehru place" bhi nahi hai :-( , softwares ka jugaad karna padhega..hmmmmm!!!!!

No worries, that’s what we call life!!!

hmmm....why dont you try going for walks or exploring the place on weekends. Rent a bicycle or something. Once you are familiar with the nooks and corners you will find all the bandas and parindas and totas and maynas ;)

I cant help but wonder what Mrs.Stone gonna feel. Ths husband has the wife at home and people at office. But what about the wife whos at home? Sorry. Just got a little bit carried away since it has been the story of my life for 4 years! I hope she does something to keep herself busy too! (unlike me who was feeling too "alienish" the first time I went abroad!) Good luck to you both. Pallavi rightly said, you will start enjoying this life!
