Sweta Karna’s US Visit

Posted by on

Travel preparation for the US started with a discussion about the weather in Boston, which is freezing cold in winter. As we discussed the weather, it seemed to me like it was going to be a dull time of year because of the cold. Fortunately, I traveled during festive Christmas and New Year season. I was excited to celebrate the New Year in Boston and a little nervous because I had to leave my 2 year old son for a month.

Kapil’s US Visit

Posted by on

Deerwalk has grown over the past couple years! There were so many new faces in the Boston office. It was really great to (re)connect and see people in person. Sitting across the table from other Deerwalkers like Kevin, Vijay and Gerardo was so nice. We really get to know people being in the same room. Every day was fun. We did the normal business things like stand ups and regular product discussions. We also got to bring our own lunch to share and we took rounds around the office laughing and sharing stories.

Ashish Shrestha’s US Visit

Posted by on

After a long and tiresome flight of twenty hours or so, from Kathmandu to Doha to Boston, I was happy to find Abanish and Namita waiting for me at Boston’s Logan airport and I was eager for an amazing US experience.

I had thought that my world cup fever would subside in America but, to my surprise, Sanjeev and Ashay took me to Rudra’s house on the very first day to watch the semifinal match between Netherlands and Argentina. Muna, Erica and Mahika were already cheering and we joined them in watching the greatest show on earth.
