Lorem Ipsum 2 - bits of Hyderabad

These Lorem Ipsum posts are quite useful. They serve to plug in the lacuna that this blog suffers at times, while being faithful to the concept of a traditional log-book. Also these are periods of when I am unable to come up with anything better to write about, and am thus forced to conjure drivel in the form of a blog post.

I've landed in the fine city of Hyderabad, and have started my internship in an equally fine company. The work is brilliant, as are the co workers, and I'm staying at this neat place in one of the more recently developed regions of the historic city. So yes, I am far from the old city with all its Nizamesque culture and the quintessential biryani - and closer to shiny glass buildings and buttoned up code crunchers who take to the roads in hundreds of thousands every morning on a weekday.

This is the sort of thing I expected to see everyday.

... and this is what I'm seeing everyday.
The weather is absolutely fanstastic. Apparently after the torrid summer, which I'm thankful to have just missed, the weather remains like this till the onset of the next summer. So temperatures are close to 20 degrees Celsius, it''s dry, windy and there's this lovely chill that hangs in the night air that makes you reach for that blanket.

I haven't gone around the city much yet, but I have more than 4 months to do that. So as of now, I'm spending my weekends, going out to buy stuff or reading books from the amazing collection that my host has. And of course, watching The Office. There never has been a better TV show than that, has there?

Ah. Well. That's about it.
