Where I stayed
After departing Hyderabad on the 21st of December, I spent the next 20+ hours on Lufthansa catching up on my movies, eating semi-good airline food and drinking too much Austrian red wine. Thanks to the good ol' time difference, I arrived into Dallas on the same day, rented a car, checked in to the Hotel ZaZa and gave my body a thorough scrubbing to make myself feel a bit more human again (too much info?). Despite the jet lag I managed to meet a few friends and have a few drinks...but the second day I was fairly worthless and I think I slept for a few dozen hours
Back to Dallas for a few days hanging with friends...but only for two nights and then it was off to New York City for New Years with two of my Hyderabad friends! Can't believe I flew back to the U.S. to hang with my Hyderabad friends...but Sonny and Kat made the offer of a free place to stay and several parties in the city so I jumped on it. NY was cold, but it was good seeing some familar faces. Of course New Years was great, the pictures don't do it justice. I only stayed in NYC for two nights and then it was back to Dallas for another two nights where Stacy managed to get us great suite tickets to a the Mavericks/Heat game...Thanks Stacy for the tickets and place to stay for a few nights!!
After Florida I took a cross country flight to Los Angeles to spend all of one night there. Why might I do that you may be asking? My good friend Kerry is leaving the U.S. and moving to Capetown South Africa with her new boyfriend....and I just happened to be back in the U.S. that same time as her going away party...therefore a trip to L.A. is a must-do. I got to see some good friends I haven't seen in a while including Amy and Kayma, who visited me in India a few momths ago. It was a great party and while we're sad to see Kerry leave...we're all very happy to have a free place in Capetown to stay when we visit. :P
Finally...back to Dallas for the final 5 nights of my trip to the U.S. where I caught up with many, many friends and purchased enough "comfort items" that I filled up four suit cases worth of crap to bring back with me to India. My last night in town I met up with friends Ruben, Stacy, Alexa, Derek for a night out at Javiers. Thanks much to Derek and Lynn for putting me up for a few nights.
It was a great trip back to the U.S....but I did get sick of living out of a suit case, sleeping in different beds every week and generally being out of my routine. Looking forward to getting back into the gym and my own bed in Hyderabad!
