This post is brought to you by Avinash Gupta. When I first heard about GAP (Global Applied Projects), I imagined I would learn a lot about the world by being in a different country. While that is true, and we’ve learnt a lot about the Mexican economy, industry and culture, I personally have gained a lot of insight into the American culture, Chinese culture and even expanded my knowledge about Indian culture!
Unfortunately, I came down with a bacterial infection while in-country and had to come back to the US early. However, I was still able to experience some amazing things while in Tanzania, including a first-hand look at getting medical attention.
T-48 hours. As we come to the end of our GAP project, we are all working at a frenetic pace, cleaning numerous spreadsheets and analyzing large volumes of data. Eric and his computer are in a show down as to which one will overheat and blow a fuse first.
Two days before our final presentation, we decided to have a last, team "fancy" dinner at Renhe Guan, an Old Shanghai style restaurant in Shanghai.
It has been two weeks since the start of our project at CVG Northampton. While the project has been exciting, we have also been eagerly looking forward to the weekends. This weekend we decided to visit Edinburgh. The problem, however, was deciding how to get there – take a train or a flight. In the end we decided to drive up the coastline until we reached Scotland!
