The ongoing series of posts on cool places related to STEM: Today.. Hyderabad!
I was called to Hyderabad, India a few years back in my alternate guise as an electrical engineer. I'd just spent a week making presentations in Nice, France, (more on that later), and my boss called to ask if I could make it to Hyderabad in two days. I hustled up to Paris and spent the day outside the Indian consulate trying to get a visa. After a few meetings, I was able to get ahold of one and off I went.
Hyderabad is the fourth biggest city in India and plays host to Advanced Micro Devices, ATI, and Xilinx among other semiconductor companies. It's a huge and vibrant city with a bit of a traffic problem.
but not to worry, everyone here ride shares.
In case you missed anything, there are four people on the motorcycle. I haven't been allowed to try this with Jr. yet, despite my assurances that it's perfectly safe.
I was able to sneak away via auto-rickshaw one afternoon and go the Charminar, one of the large shopping districts in town.
