The Other Eric

Last night my apartment community organized a religious program with song and dance. Most of the residents joined in the celebration.


I stopped by to check out the event. While there, I met an expat who worked for Heineken. He was making sure the local breweries in India were up to code. Hopefully he’ll be able to offer some friendly discounts.

I also met a man from the Philippines named Eric. He actually lives in the same building as me, but I just never ran into him. Everyone has a different work schedule here.

We ended up going to the local pub and had a few beers. It was interesting hearing about his work on the local metro that’s being built. His family is still in the Philippines, who he only gets to see 2 – 3 times a year. Must be difficult.
