Recently, as part of my job that pays the bills, I was ask to travel to India to assist one of our major clients with a software migration. I was very honoured to be chosen and ready for what was going to be a very packed working week. Little did I know how busy I was going to be…
On arrival, I was greeted with familiar hot and humid climate that I was accustomed having grown up in Darwin. And tired as I was I revelled in the variety of sites that the city of Mumbai had to offer. From construction on a very large apartment block to a thrown together shanty town-esque buildings with tarpaulins for roofs, but they still managed to have a satellite TV dish.
Mumbai was a city that seemed to always be going somewhere and never had time to wait. As the work took me late into the night and we were often driving back to the hotel to see a world still full of hustle and bustle despite the hour. Having a Muslim population during Ramadan meant that even the street food stalls were still operating to cater for those in need of a good feed ahead of a whole day of fasting come the morning light.
As you can see after a long flight and 2 nights of work on only a few hours sleep I was certainly a little worse for wear. But my gracious host were very good at looking after me and keeping me well fed on local cuisine. Even on the last day I was treated to a specially made prawn curry prepared by Alfred for me to which I was very grateful and enjoyed immensely, though next time I am looking forward to the extra hot version to really test my love of chilli!
Any way I look forward to sharing more about the development of Little Bit Lost in my next post with more of a look at inventory and crafting system.
