Waiting is my primary occupation this week. Waiting for my official student documents, waiting for email confirmations, waiting for my visa, waiting for doctor’s appointments.

It is raining outside and I wonder what the weather is like in Delhi at the moment. What people on the campus are doing. Will I have a culture shock? Probably. Some films I saw online already managed to confuse me slightly. And when I replied to the chairperson of the programme, I did not know if “Asha” is a female or male first name (Google did not help). Normally the A at the end would indicate a female name…at least in Europe…however, my boyfriend’s name also ends with an a, so this logic did not help either. I bet on the male dominance in responsible positions and wrote “Dear Mr.”, risking to look like an ignorant westerner….:)

In 2008, I had been selected for the European Business School ESCP’s “Master in International Management” Programme, which was to be taught in two different countries. For my 7 month first semester, I had chosen their partner school “Management Development Institute” (MDI) in Gurgaon, a suburb of Delhi. Not having been to India before, and coming from a non-business background in humanities, it was an exciting time, which I documented on my blog.
