Writing from Vegas

February 18, 2008 — 1 Comment

27 hours of travelling, 1 bomb scare and a 10 cups of coffee – here I am in Las Vegas, writing my blog. Reached here last evening at around 6p.m. (local time). Left India on Saturday night 9.30p.m. (and when I reached Vegas, it was already Monday morning there).

But thankfully, I was not very tired yesterday. Did catch quite a few winks on flight. I would have written this last night but I had to get a converter pin for my laptop. Interestingly, I went out for a walk and couldn’t find an electronics store anywhere nearby. Finally got one at a camera store for $11.

Staying at “The Bellagio. Beauiful room and an excellent view (even though it does not include the dancing fountains).

And in case you are wondering about the bomb scare – it happened yesterday at LA airport. I had checked in my luggage with Southwest for my flight to Vegas. And when I walked to one of the exits, they had already blocked it. When my friends and I stepped out of the airport, I saw the LAPD and Bomb squads rushing in and making sure the situation was in control. Thankfully, I was able to get in back on time to catch my flight. I am sure there were many who missed their flights. (It looks like the airlines don’t wait here for booked passengers even when it is caused by the authorities!)
