June 5th

unl

UNL Summer School started today. I'm part of a class of 40 people, out of which only about 13 are students - the rest are all professors from different universities, and lecturers. There are only two undergrad students other than me, so the overall classroom feeling is slightly awkward right now, but I should get used to it.

notes about flying indian airlines

  1. Don't be afraid of the engine noise in the beginning. It might sound like a with a discharged battery, but don't worry, it's just a minor thing, you wont have to go out and push the plane off the runway.
  2. The flight attendants are not the young gorgeous perfect 10s you dream them out to be.
  3. Flying is kinda boring, as opposed to train journey. First of all, barring the landing and take off, there is no view. All you see is clouds, and the sun. Also, in trains, you often have another train passing by, going in the opposite direction. While I'm aware how dangerous such things can be for airplanes, but it sure would be fun to see one whizz by like they have in those disaster movies on HBO.

Yay! I'm in mumbai now! Too bad we didn't have any cinema-esque hijack scenes during the flight...
