Coding By Train: Leg 2 (Washington, DC to Chicago)

    0

Seating was limited and community seating is used, providing an opportunity for you to meet new people. I opted to skip dinner in lieu of hanging out in the observation section with few beers (shocker!). This time the only decent...

As We Begin Again

With this post, I am hoping for a return to more frequent and relevant posting to my blog. It is my opportunity to begin again. The year has been quite busy (too many projects undertaken) but I’ve not taken time to reflect on the things that I have experienced, which is the whole point of this blog. In the interest of brevity, I’ll just summarize: On the development...

Single Serving Friends…maybe

"Tyler, you are by far the most interesting single-serving friend I've ever met" -Fight ClubA special treat when traveling are the "random" conversations i have with complete strangers. (yes i know this can happen anywhere, but i have higher success rate of engagement among travelers). There is a different dynamic and freedom in conversation with someone whom you will likely never meet again vs. a friend...

Good swastika, bad swastika

I can't tell whether it's because i haven't learned enough world history or whether it's because our views are completely skewed by certain events that overshadow everything else, but i'm constantly finding myself in a cycle of what?!?...oh, ok. Good swastika  So i started noticing swastikas everywhere around Mumbai and then the rest of India. many are horizontal in orientation, but you'll also find the...

My one real week in London

The rooms are minimalist, but provide everything you need. I’ve heard comparisons between the rooms to cruise ship rooms, and while I’ve never been on a cruise, I sort of see what they...
