“Black Friday” in US is the day after Thanksgiving day. On this single day you get the best deals - flat discounts, and unbelievable prices. There’s a catch though, the best deals are available real early - I mean as early 5 AM - people are known to camp the night out just to grab them. While my colleague and me went to the mall relatively late at 7:30 I still got some nice deals.
After the rollercoaster ride that is my Mumbai - Austin flight, I’ve finally settled down here, Here’s been my initial impressions.
- There are Indians everywhere. Yes I’d heard about it, now I’ve seen it. Met quite a few Indians here (not necessarily friendly buggers). There were couple of Indian families in my NJ - Houston flight. Couple of students too, one fellow was shivering, shaking and slowly came to me and asked he was boarding the right flight.Heck the only other guy besides me in Houston - Austin flight was an Indian. (Coversely, he might be thinking the same)
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.
