So I've arrived back home in Toronto! Woohoo! It was an enjoyable vacation through the few parts of India that I visited and it was definitely not enough time to enjoy all of the locations properly. However, it was quite an experience being able to travel from Mussoorie-30deg weather, to Rajastan-48 deg weather, to Goa-35degree weather and beaches =). The final destination was definitely necessary as I was able to enjoy the beaches and catch up with new friends that I met in Mussoorie. The culture is completely different from the rest of India, and I was able to check out one of the weddings in India.
What can I say? The first part of EMI is over, and I'm sure there will be many more experiences with EMI in the future. I've learned many things, ranging from professional work, to personal growth, to spiritual growth. One of the main things that has impacted me through this experience was the connection and ability to mesh with the other workers in a way I've never seen before. Every skill and every personality was complimented by every person in the office to a degree that allowed for us to stand out with the roles that we were given. The other valuable experience that I gained, was a greater appreciation for water. As we were in Mussoorie, we had constant power shortages and unstable electricity which was complained about constantly as we were running short on our deadlines. One day, our water supply dried up and we didn't have water for multiple days, which helped me to gain a perspective that I'd rather have running water and no power any time. After coming back I've seen how much of a blessing water is.
Anyway, as I am back now I'd love to share stories and/or answer questions in person over a coffee or a meal. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'd be glad to go more in depth with sharing my experience!
Thanks for your support and keeping me updated with everything. I'll be sure to add more pictures of the travels to the facebook albums.
