What did you find most interesting about living and working in the US?

I lived and worked in US for almost 9 years and thoroughly loved and enjoyed my stay. Very impressed with the infrastructure, discipline and work etiquettes.

I worked in India for a year as a Computer Teacher.  It’s an entirely different feeling when you teach little kids. I loved it
