A Visit to North By NorthWest

The day I landed in Austin, when I was being driven back, I’d seen this seemingly nice place – North by North West and my colleague told me its a beer brewery and restaurant, and I made a mental note to check it out. Somehow I never checked it out – till today. Yesterday while heading out to Bank of America to encash my Travellers’ Cheque I noticed that North by NorthWest is pretty close and walking distance from where I stay, so I decided to check this place out.

Experience of a Lifetime – The Mumbai Austin Flight

I’ve been in couple of flights before but this would be my first International, Intercontinental flight. As in my previous post, the flight was scheduled to depart at 23:40 from Mumbai on Nov 20 and arrive in Newark, New Jersey at 05:25 AM. And then the connecting flight from Newark, NJ to Austin, Texas was scheduled to leave at 07:15 and arrive in  Austin, Texas at 10:25. Like most other things, (surprise, surprise) this too didn’t as per plan.

Let me start from scratch.

My Last few days in India….

Yup, this upcoming week will be my last week in India. I’d mentioned earlier about me getting an onsite gig. This week will probably be the last week here in India, before I fly off to Austin, Texas. I still have my Visa interview due this Wednesday, November 12th though. Earlier today I’d come to know that the most probable date for mr flying would be November 16th, but then it was pushed to November 19th to give some buffer time incase my visa gets delayed and all. Don’t know if I’ll be able to head back home, I’ll try to squeeze in a Mangalore trip this weekend, but I’m afraid most likely that ain’t gonna happen and I’d have to fly directly from Chennai. 

Well thats about all I can think of now. Will post on my visa interview experiences once its over on Wednesday. For quick updates you can always follow me on twitter.
