In Hyderabad!

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

Took an overnight bus trip to Hyderbad and reached today morning at around 7am. I usually never get sleep on bus trips and this trip was no different. Im kinda sleepy now and would probably doze off after writing this blog post (so please excuse me for this short, to the point post with no pics :) )

The trip here was uneventful, reached the city and then took an auto to the guest house. Infosys owns several apartments throughout the city. We are in one in the heart of the city. Basically I am in a 3 bed room apartment (with a proper hall, kitchen which has a microwave, fridge etc., washing machine etc.) with ac’s and tv’s in every room. My friend and I are currently the only ones in this apartment, with two more friends in a similar apartment on the floor below.

The best part is the caretaker who cooks for us (also does housekeeping)! So we get homely food, which tastes great! Had some nice hot rotis, with 2 types of sabzi’s and rice/dal/curd. Is way better than eating at infosys food courts.

The campus here is quite good, although quite far off from where we are staying (our guest house is in the heart of the city). Plan to do lots of site seeing starting tomo and especially over the weekends. We are undergoing Siebel training here, which seems to be quite easy. Our class has a strength of 25, with most people being laterals with many years of experience.

This is the 4th city I have been to in the past 3 months, been an interesting ride, will keep yall updated!

Posted in Pune, on to Hyderabad

I have been in Pune (posted in Pune SEZ) since the 26th of Jan. Came just a day before my birthday :) Am on the bench in Pune.

Am moving out to Hyderabad today evening (an overnight bus trip). We would be having training on a CRM product called Siebel there. Would be spending about a week there and hope to explore the city this weekend!

Will post pics and keep everyone updated!
