Chile calling...


I’m gearing up for my first international travel on work. Off to Santiago, Chile, a country in South America, at a distance of 17000kms from Chennai. (Little less than half of earth’s perimeter) Just a short 1 week assignment and will be back in time for an important wedding.

Technically this is my second international trip, but practically first. The earlier 2 day trip to Srilanka was technically international, but practically too short, simple and India-like to feel international.

Have to undergo 30 hours of marathon flight transiting via Dubai and Brazil to reach other part of Planet Earth. (I’ve only few hours of transit time here-wish I had a longer transit time- preferably couple of weeks each at Dubai and Brazil J). I’m told Chile is a beautiful place, let me see.

I’m not going there for leisure. Work related responsibilities will keep me busy for most of the time. Will do whatever little exploration I can, when time permits.

Specific details of the visit are withheld as it may interfere with Company and client confidentiality requirements

This also means there may not be much blog posts for next couple of weeks.
