Quite the Friday

On my commute to work today I saw an elephant crossing the street. No big deal.

Lunch usually takes at least an hour and a half in India because service is very slow. So, I tried to bypass this by calling in my order ahead. I think I saved all of ten minutes. Was worth a try.

I stayed in the office pretty late today brainstorming with my boss. Lot of great ideas came up that I hope we can successfully implement.

I went straight to the mall after work. I tried to find a small desk fan that I could use in the office. It gets pretty hot in there. I was told that I need to go to a hardware store. The search continues.

What was really strange was when I first arrived at the mall, a Caucasian college-aged kid who was completely wasted tapped me on the shoulder, said “what’s up bro?” and waddled away. He didn’t seem like he belonged there. Very odd.

At dinner the waiter tried to trick me into having a drink that cost 2,000 rupees, which is about $40. I stuck with Sprite. There were little kids running all around the restaurant. I’m not sure that would go over well in the U.S.

On my way home, I ran into Scott, another ExPat from my hotel. He was having trouble articulating to the taxi driver where he wanted to go. I helped us get back safe and sound.
