Here I am, back in the game

Whoa! It's been 4 months since I wrote something. Sounds terrible, isn't it? This time it is not procrastination as I had lots and lots of stuffs going on with my personal as well as professional life. The period from May-August proved to be the most interesting months of my life as I had the opportunity to visit United States of America. Visa interviews, documentation, travel, work stuffs, household responsibilities, financial management... I wonder what turned me so responsible (FYI, I wasn't like this earlier).  

You might be wondering what was I doing all these months? I guess it's time to break the ice (well, it might sound like one but there isn't any mystery). 

USA Trip
I had an opportunity to visit the beautiful state of Wisconsin during the month of July. It was a short business trip, which lasted for 13 days. Prepping for the trip was quite challenging as I had to get all my paperwork done in a right way for the smooth processing of my visa, the part I thoroughly enjoyed. 

I traveled in an airline which I didn't knew about its existence until I saw the name on my ticket - Etihad airways. I was surprised to know that Etihad, Abu Dhabi based, is one of the top operating airline (next to Emirates). The services were good but the part where I had to sit for 14 hours long (Abu Dhabi to Chicago) was kinda clumsy. 

Hannibal (Season 1 - Season 3)
Post Dexter, it took me almost 5 months to start another series and this time I decided to watch 'Hannibal', as suggested by one of my friend. Trust me, this is way too gory than Dexter, yet it was extremely entertaining. Packed with brilliant performances by Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal), this series is a must watch for those who enjoyed watching Dexter. Again, I had a marathon completing all the three seasons within the time frame of a month (took me close to 3 weeks to complete 39 episodes). I had a blast watching season 2 and season 3 finale as they were the most intriguing episodes that gave a nerve chilling experience. I feel bad hearing rumors that the Season 4 has been cancelled. I hope that it gets revived and now I would have to wait for an year or more to catch up with the forthcoming seasons (fun).
