Week 12: Fall Break

Category: Blog | #MS in the US

Fall Break is a 1-week break that relieves you from all the assignments and homework for a short time. I decided to visit the Grand Canyon for this break. Also luckily this holiday overlapped with the Indian Festival of Diwali, making this holiday exciting.

19th October: Laxmi Pujan

Diwali celebrations in the USA are quite different. There is no noise pollution here. We planned the Laxmi Puja at our home and invited our friends. We also prepared Gulab Jamun today. My roommate and I even received a parcel from home with all the homemade Diwali delicacies.

20th October: Instruction Permit

I gave the driving license exam in the DMV office of Arizona. It’s a simple MCQ test to check that you understand the rules and regulations. It’s $7 for just Instruction Permit, or you can pay $10 for a Driving license without getting a laminated Instructed Permit.

The USA is a country where you need a car for convenience. The public transport is not that good, and places are very far away.
