I almost got in trouble for taking pictures outside of the Olympia Technology Park, where I’ve been working for two weeks. The guard came over as I was taking a farewell picture with the HP Storage Team.
I’ve definitely made some friends here. Navaneeth (in the middle) took me to see his wife, and daughter in their home. I was part of a joke about an after-class party the other day when someone left their laptop unlocked. We’ve had a lot of laughs, and I hope made their jobs easier, and better understood. I’ll be talking with them, I’m sure.
They don’t like to use cash in the food court of the office building. You pay cash at a counter and get a cash card, and use that at the food vendors. To prevent stealing, Navaneeth said.
The security is since 26/11, or November 26th. The Mumbai attacks that were quite shocking to the Indian people. Maybe not equal to September 11th in casualties, but it has resulted in a lot of changes.
I hear the planes roaring over-head and soon I’ll be on my way to the airport to climb aboard one. About 3-4 hours to Dubai, and then a long 15 hours to Houston, and then another 5 hours to Atlanta. Or something like that. Hard to tell with all the time changes. See you soon, America!
