My Journey to US / in US - Part 2

I am back here again after getting attacked by my friend ( Bad Cold ).
Let me continue this blog as I told you.

Below is the link to the part 1 of my journey -


Coming to the second part...

After enjoying a month and half stay with the friends over there in Chicago, finally I have got my first project in New York City. I was literally scared when I heard this from my employer. By then I heard that NY is very very densed and full of crime in downtown and all other stories. One time I was about to leave that offer and try for another. Since I dint take that decision, I was lucky enough to work in the city and get the required US knowledge fastly.

In my past also, there was one same situation for me. I had to join a college in Hyderabad city after my 10th class. I was almost a kid then as you can imagine. But because I had to join there, I came to city and learnt all the things which helped me a lot in my life. Somthings like this will make us better and better I guess. Coming to the present, I did so much research on NY city before arriving. I stayed in a hotel near to city and captured all the required ( transportation and etc ) information.

Statue of Liberty, New Jersey

Finally I could manage to get an accomodation in Jersey City, NJ. I started learning things like taking bus & train tickets, walking on NY streets. I never forget those 4 months working in 42nd street for Pfizer. Still I cant forget that midnight where I travelled from NJ to NY alone in train. I was scared almost to hell. :))It was fun. After a week or so, I transformed a lot and became too confident. Recently I went with my group of friends to guide them in the city...ha ha...:-P.

I covered most of the parts in NJ and NY city while I was working there. Also got good roomies over there.

@aarthi
You are true. But nowaday you wont feel missing our contry more. Since we have lot of indians here around and the communication also became very convenient. Ofcourse its always makes difference for being near and far.
