This was my first visit to Deerwalk Office in Boston. I was very excited for this and had waited for a long time; the day was August 13, 2017 9:20 PM. I reached Boston after 18 hours of long flight and 10 hours of transit. I had slept for not more than an hour yet the excitement was overwhelming.
I realized that the work style at our Lexington office was very different than that at our Nepal office. It was not easy adjusting to this new place but I feel I managed it well. Unlike our Nepal office, the Lexington people directly faced our clients and almost everything was urgent. Daily stand-up meetings were common in Nepal office and Lexington office and I could contribute well in the discussion. The most fruitful part of my visit was the opportunity to work directly with US team.
After working for a week, I visited Boston downtown and Harvard University, closer touch to flavor of American Culture. This made my mind to visit few natural as well as man made things in United States.
Luckily all the family members (Ashay, Sagar, Bipul, Manish and Saroj) gave me a chance to visit Bar Harbor (Mt Desert Island) and Cadillac Mountain. Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, at 1,530 feet (466 meters), is the highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard and the first place to view sunrise in the United States. This was fun filled trip with Sea food Lobster
My next visit was to New York, Washington, D.C. and Virginia. Man made things in NY and DC; like Brooklyn Bridge, World Trade Center, Times Square, White House (DC) are worthwhile to mention and actually describe American development.
I have lasting fond memories from this trip, including: Staying with Ashay, Comfortable working with Saroj, Outstanding help from Manish and Sagar, Gathering and testing Nepali foods with Rudra dai, Suresh, Sushant and Bipul.
Lastly, I feel this visit was fruitful as I got a chance to meet the US team members in person and learn about their views, vision and expectation from the Nepal Team. Thank you Deerwalk team for this great opportunity.
