India Trip – July 2013

Well, I just got back from my trip. It was really good and very productive. I think we got a lot accomplished. It’s good to be back. I have a lot of pictures that I took and I thought I’d put them all in one post instead of a photo …

WorldPerks Kinda Sucks

I just took 2, last minute flights on NWA / Delta and thought I’d sign up into their miles program – but no! They say, "Credit will not be given for flights taken prior to enrollment into the WorldPerks program." What? That’s really lame! Incredible. -T

Rain and Floods in Chennai, India

Check out the pictures someone sent me (click into this story). They don’t have much of an infrastructure set up like here in the US with storm sewers but if we had this much rain, we’d have problems, too! -Tony

Back from Chennai

I just flew in from Chennai with 23 hours in the air and man, are my arms tired (yeah, that was corny but I still like that one). I’m still waiting for my luggage. Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone! Thanks too all of those who serve or have served in …

Another Movie Experience

Ok, they just do it different here. I went to see the new Chronicles of Narnia movie, which was good from what I saw and heard of it. So I go to the earliest show today, 11 am. When the movie starts, there are about 20 people in the theater …

In Chennai, India

Hey Everyone! Well, things are going well here. It’s very hot – no wait… it’s VERY HOT. Check out the weather in Chennai. I’ve got a few more days and then I jump over the pond and head back. Before then, we’re going to Mayajaal with the team tomorrow. That …

Earthquakes

As I was going to sleep last night, I thought I felt the place a rumblin’ slightly. That was about midnight here in India. China just had a few big ones but it doesn’t look like it was at the time I felt something. There was one in Afghanistan, which …

The LH 758 Flight

Traveling went fine for me getting over here. It took a while and I had a 4 hour layover in Frankfurt, but it was nice there. I got outside of the airport and walked around a bit over there. At least I can say that I’ve been in Frankfurt instead …

In Frankfurt

  It’s sunny and nice here. I had a few hours to kill, so I went out by the airport. The Sheraton had a room to use for a few hours but it would have been 150 Euro. $300 for a few hours? Forget it. Looking forward to some good …

Off to India

Well, I’ll have fewer blog posts later this week as I head across the pond to India. I’m not looking forward to the flying. Maybe if I do that, it’ll go better than I expect. Hopefully leaving 1 day earlier than usual (versus 1 day closer to the weekend) will …
