As mentioned in my last post I am writing this blog entry from San Jose, California. I am visiting Veraz Networks for 8 weeks.

I took a Cathay Pacific flight to Hong Kong, my first international flight. As usual I requested for a window seat with extra leg space, but on boarding I found that a lady was sitting on my seat. They were a couple with a small kid with them, the window and middle seat were more comfortably positioned if they were to keep the baby in the basket in front. The plane reached Hong Kong after a stop over at Bangkok. The flight had a camera fitted somewhere in the bottom and We could see the landing tyres folding and the view from 'bottom of the plane' was good.

I finally managed to get a window seat on the next leg of journey. I slept most of the time, saw flying daggers, a friends episode and some other programs. Didn't read much of the Wodehouse book that I was carrying.

The weather in California is very pleasant and the hotel 'Staybridge' that I am staying at is a nice, small one. They have a 'full kitchen', which is of no use to me as I don't cook, I can only heat the 'Ready to Eat' food. :( First time I tasted 'ready to eat' food and I would disagree with people who don't like it. It is good. I took a cab from airport to the hotel and the cab driver was a spanish chap.. He encouraged me to try my spanish when I told him I have learnt basics of the language :-) He actually had the song 'Maria Isabel' in his cab.

Planning to buy a laptop, am not able to decide between an apple and an IBM.. I know there is no way to compare the two but I need to take a decision anyways.

Good to hear ki Spanish helped. But it meant that it wont help in more enterprising ordeals, the saint that you are.

Khair, Apple anyday, if you have the bandwidth why not??
