Three things I miss about the US

Its been 9 months since I left United States and I should say that while I am happy here, some part of me still wants to be there. Here are three things that I miss the most about the US..

1. New York City: I have been here quite a few times and to be honest every single trip has been awesome. I have enjoyed a lot whenever I have been to New York, be it just for enjoyment with friends or serious job interviews. I like the pace of the city, the wealth, the power, the night lights.. everything associated with NY.

2. Starbucks coffee: I am not a huge fan of coffee, but I really liked the atmosphere at Starbucks. I would usually just go there after work in the evening with a novel or my laptop, order a frappuccino and sit there for hours without being bothered. The other reason I like this place is I interviewed for my current job here.. hehe

3. Chiptole: The most satisfying burrito for $5.95. I was introduced to it by my roomies and since then it has been one of my favorite places to grab a bite. The food is not only good but extremely filling also. The good part for me was a buddy of mine was a manager at one of the Chipotle outlets and he would get me free burrito coupons and when he moved he would even send me those coupons via mail. I wish they had a Chipotle here.. man would it make some awesome business.

  1. Yeah US has its charm….but apna desh apna hota hai…NY is an awesome place….city of lights…a totally happening place to be….an a lucky one too in your case.well all I can say for chipotle is yuuuuummmmm 😉

  2. (Aww, you added me to your blogroll! I seriously need to update mine, and you’ll be there!)I’m curious as to where you spent your time in the States? I think I’d feel the same way if I spent time in another country and then returned home. I fall in love easily, and I could see myself going somewhere and not wanting to leave.

  3. @Geets, I know. I didnt say I didnt like Mumbai, but you have never been to NY.. so comparing NYC to Mumbai is not fair on your part.@la anonyme: What do u mean “an a lucky one too in your case”? @Keshi, No we dont have Starbucks here. We do have Barista, Cafe Coffee Day and Mocha.@SweetK, I spent most of time in Maryland, Washington DC and Virginia. Though I have pretty much covered everything on the east coast of the US. @Kits, I believe you will get “that quality” of life soon. To be honest, sometimes I miss it too.

  4. Oh, you mos def should come to Oklahoma next time you’re over. A lot of people would tell you otherwise, but it’s one of America’s best kept secrets. The people here are SO nice. 🙂

  5. @SweetK, I am not sure as to when I am heading to the US again. But sure, I will try and come over to the ‘Sooner State’. I still dont know why is it called that??
