Finally, I was flying to Vegas for Pubcon 2008. The flight was long and was at a stretch, it took me almost 15 hours to reach Chicago O Hare International Airport from Delhi. Most of the time I was sleeping and luckily there was no kid crying or pulling my pants around in plane . From Chicago I had to board another plane to Las Vegas, which was another 4 hours journey. In total I traveled almost 24 hours. I reached hotel, Riveria Hotel and Casino pretty early then scheduled check-in time and it gave me the right reason and opportunity to just grab a Bud light by the pool side. After checking in, the day was spent more or less to sleep after a long long journey.
In evening I met one of the clients at Mandalay’s Bay’s Eye Candy Bar, which was a pretty nice place with terrific ambience. We took couple of drinks there and it was fun. On the way back I stopped at the “Strip” to roam around and check out different hotels, which was an experience in itself. Yeah, I had to buy a travel adapter here in Vegas, the one I bought from India didn’t work here, they have very thin plug adapters, back in India they normally give a thick pin ones, and they don’t work here. So if you plan to come to US and want to buy a adapter just go in for a thin pin ones. I bought it for 15$ here, back in India it costs maybe 0.5$. So do keep this tip in mind while travelling.
Next day the conference starts and I am off to bed..
