Today, it rained for the first time of what I am sure will be many since it is the rainy season. There was an extreme downpour for a couple hours, but other than that not too bad. If the rainy season means that it only rains a couple hours everyday, it won't be too bad. I doubt this will be the case though.
This afternoon I met up with John and Miles who are interning at different firms here in
After the food court we went to Miles's tailor because he had another fitting. Miles got here several days before John and I, so he already has begun to have some suits made. John and I looked around a little and made some notes about possibly coming back to get a couple suits ourselves. I have a few other places I want to look at before I decide.

The corn was very sweet which countered the spiciness of the chili well, though I had to take the chili off a few of them since my eyes were starting to water. I also tried a pork and noodle soup, a chicken dish that was prepared by wrapping the chicken in banana leaves and grilling it and part of B's curry rice dish.
After Lunch, we went to the
office and I met one or two of the partners including an Australian name Paul
Connelly that B says I will be working with and saw where my cubicle is
located. The office is on the 18th floor of the
