Saint Augustine once quoted: “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” The moment I came to know that I was next in line for the US visit, I was on cloud nine. After a month-long preparation, I was finally departing for Boston, Massachusetts, USA. It was a long flight and quite tiring, but I was also quite excited about the trip. Regular refreshments of Guinness beer kept me full of energy. Finally, I was picked up at Boston Logan airport by Manish, Sagar, and Suresh and we headed to Sanjeev’s apartment.
The next day, I went to the office in Lexington and was happily welcomed by all the US team members. The US office is a bit quiet in comparison to the Nepal office, but the amount of work they do in a day simply amazed me. The US office employees work in three shifts: morning, regular, and evening shift. This speaks volumes about their dedication not only towards work, but also towards Deerwalk. All the US members were very kind to me during my stay. They helped me a lot and I learned many new things throughout the duration of my stay there. All the work and stress from the workweek was relieved by the weekends. I spent my first weekend travelling to New York, “the city of dreams.” After that came my most awaited destination, Miami, which was very hot (climate wise). I had a great time there exploring beaches, which I enjoyed thoroughly.
It was a short visit to the US, but I tried to learn and explore as much as possible. I would like to thank Rudra Dai and Muna Bhauju for the wonderful dinner, and the whole Deerwalk team in the US for being great mentors and good caretakers. Lastly, I would like to thank the entire Deerwalk family for this opportunity.
