Did you miss me? Did you? Did you?
I only took cabin baggage with me for my visit. Full, my bag was not allowed to be more than 7 kg or aeroplane officials would do dire things to me. I was staying at the Flamingo in Las Vegas and on my last day I rushed down to their equivalent of our PostShop and weighed my bag. 7 kg exactly. However, when I reached Los Angeles Airport, the bag was weighed again.
"It's 11 kg," said the lady from Virgin Australia.
"No, no, it can't be! It weighed 7 kg this morning-" Me, yelling hysterically.
"Perhaps you should take your foot off the scale," said the lady.
Phew. But I never figured a foot could weigh 4kg. I truly must go on a diet.
I had a wonderful view from my room at The Flamingo. 25th floor and I could see all of The Bellagio Hotel's famous dancing water feature. The first time I went to Vegas, I had to cram myself third row back behind a fence to get a glimpse of just a part of the feature. Now, from my hotel room it was all so routine - daytime and nighttime I had a bird's eye view of everything.
I love the tv in the bathroom mirror.
More to come about Vegas......
