Hello! Ball State University

Image: http://www.bsu.com/
in the last three month, almost half of the world is travelled.Travel from Osaka to Kathmandu (Nepal) to again Osaka to Tokyo to Seattle to Dulles to Indianapolis (USA) finally landed me to my destination Ball State University; Muncie; a mid-sized midwestern city in Indiana. Here I am going to pursue master degree in architecture and first semester (fall) starts this monday.I found here three wonderful Nepalese friends (Keshavraj Paudel, Bikram Sharma and Kamal Prajapati). All of them are quite friendly and I am enjyoing the hang-outs right before the fall academic session.BBQ,Shopping,Tennis,Basketball,Gym all helping to overcome some sort of homesickness in this new environment. Thank you very much guys!
I am missing my wife Ava, daughter Samsara and family in Nepal a lot. On the way to USA, We had stopped at Tokyo for a couple of days. We visited Disney resort, Tokyo tower and some other places of architectural importance. And to my surprise, my four year old daughter still thinks I am in Disney land because they returned back to Matsuyama and I took flight to USA from Tolyo. Isn't it funny ha .. ha.. ha...
By the way, I am having a kind of excitement to be part of one of the best architectural school in the US and gain knowledge under the guidance of Dr. Wesley Janz. The CAP ( college of architecture and planning) itself is located in the award winning building. isn't it exciting enough!
Take a look on CAPbuilding. Here is the link,there is the slide show on the right side of the linked page.
