Trip Report Another Indian comes to the US of A!

Jump to last reply

The reason is very obvious and oh so common place! I never thought I would travel to this part of the world in my life, I hate long flights, so that was the main reason this was to never happen... but guess what? Life had other plans! My husband is sent on a project to the US of A and the economy is so precarious we wouldn't dare refuse and sit without a project (on the bench as they call it in the IT industry), the worst bit being it is a long project one that extends into 2010 even! :O We brave our hearts and say we will manage living w/o seeing each other for a year, and yes, very predictably end of 3 months and I am missing him so much I decide to brave this flight....For some vague reason AJ(my husband) likes the BA a lot! So obviously when he books my tickets to Columbus, Ohio he books it on BA, which means I fly from Bangalore to London (thats 10.5 hours), stopover at London for 2 hours, then fly London to Chicago ( Another 9 hours), stop over here for 2 hours with a very hurried luggage transfer(!!) and then fly Chicago to Columbus for an hour by which time I really thought my legs had lost all motoring capabilities!! (Phew!) So it was no surprise that when I came out to meet AJ I was acting like a zombie!
I was busy wondering how do so many Indians commute all the way here so many times a year??! I mean truly what motivates them to sometimes even relocate so far away from home? For somebody who has spent her life settled in and around a ten kilometers radius in Bangalore, these were puzzling thoughts indeed! With these thoughts I shall leave to get some lunch ready for my husband. Will continue this posting later ..(this is for those of you who braved into this post even after reading the title)
