I departed from Soekarno Hatta International Airport at 2.00 am in the morning with Etihad Airways and arrived in Abu Dhabi at 6.50 am. After getting transit for 3 hours, I departed to Washington DC at 10 am. The journey took about 15 hours from Abu Dhabi. Finally, I arrived in Dulles International Airport (IAD), Washington DC at 16.30 pm on the same day. Getting out from passport control is another story. It took almost two hours for queuing at the Immigration Desk. After passing through arrival gate, I was picked up by Mr. Paul McVeigh (NOVA Vice President) at the arrival lounge. Paul drove me to Nadereh Chamlou’s house. In the house, I met also Dr. Afsaneh Chamlou, the exchange partner staff in the program. Ms Nadereh Chamlou, who is Dr. Afsaneh Chamlou’s sister, has been working for the World Bank for 30 years and has been a speaker for many events around the world particularly on women role issues.
