First impression of the US if you ask me, well...we were stranded at the LA airport. And inspite of being such a big and busy port i couldn't find a single phone booth where calls to India could be made. Neither did i find a shop open late in the night to buy a calling card, and had to wait till the morning. I would say making a phone call back home is much simpler and easier. I was amazed by the kind of vehicles i saw at the airport and particularly the cleanliness of public transport.
My first experience with american coffee was bad and tea, worse. People here definitely dont know how to make tea. Tucson, the city i am in, is a very quiet and peaceful place. You hardly see a person walking around. Seniors here are doing just everything possible for us, to make us comfortable, hats off to them!
Jet lag has nearly been compensated...Search is on to get a place for living, and still have to explore each and everything out here. Hopefully things will settle down in like a week and half.
