    June 26, 2017 in India

    I am writing this text after going out for some drinks. It is 8 o’clock and I am back at the hotel. Instead of going for an all nighter we went home to prepare for the next day of probably boring introduction talks. THAT IS HOW MUCH I LOVE MY JOB! Can you believe it? Me missing out on a party in a great city. We even meet Indians from Pune, Mumbai, Delhi and America. They showed us around and even got us into an after party.
    Ok, ok, back of a little bit. What happened so far:
    Today was the second day of TWU. We actually only went to the office to do our tech setup, which most of us did the night before. We finished quickly and where back at around 12 am. David (Australian working in Germany), Daniela (from Chile), Pedro (Brazil), Laura (Brazil), Simoa (Brazil), Alvero (hopefully I got your name right, Chile) and I were going out to eat at an expensive Indian place with alcohol. So alcohol is prohibited in India and hard to come by in my opinion. The entrance was expensive but included a buffet and all you can drink beer and wine.
    So we met these Indians. One was working in a German Company and another for Microsoft, a Sewer Architect and an economics student. They showed us around and really brought a different, more prosperous perspective on India. They were like us. But suddenly the mirror shows how little they acknowledge the poverty around them. Finding excuses for their own passive behaviour and being defensive on inequality issues. We had a fun night anyway, but it got me thinking about my own behaviour. Even though you see problems every day, we do nothing to solve them. I feel so ignorant right now…

    Day 1

    June 26, 2017 in India

    So the first full time working day in the office was a lot of fun and exhaustive because we were not getting our full break times. All the worse, I was sick from the ice in a drink from last night. Dehli Belly they call it. So to counter I pumped myself full of pills and survived the day. Because of a public holiday revolving around the end of ramadan, it was hard to get food as most places where closed. We went for Indian food again. Obviously! Cheap, tasty, spicy, lots of it, addictive.
    In the evening we went for a second round of Qwinto. We laughed so hard on every roll of the dice. Afterwards we played Heads Up! A game where you guess what name is written on your forehead by the hints other people give you. Also quite funny. Ask me about it in a quiet moment and we probably are gonna have a blast.
    Apart from that we are getting along very well. It seems ThoughtWorkers around the globe are alike. We share a common goal and mindset. Critical discussions about corruption, Brazilian elections, Hypocrisy in charity and the ever lasting battle on who has the worst educational system rule the day. I learn so much and want to know more. This place is slowly but steady turning me into a better person. Tomorrow is formal Tuesday. That means I have to dress up and show of my amazing blue shirt. HOT AF (so I have been told, obviously by a guy…)
    Thanks for reading, here is a dinosaur. (For you gaggers out there)
