    Kind of Vegas TR

    We’re in Vegas for our first bit of travel since before the pandemic. Wish it was Aruba but Vegas is fun. Thought I would pop in occasionally with what’s going on. We stayed at the Hilton at Logan airport last night as we had an early morning flight. The airport this morning was an absolute zoo! It was so crowded I couldn’t find the Mint line. It had been moved to the middle of the chaos which of course makes no sense. One of the JB employees walked us over. There were just 2 people in front of us and boy I can tell you we got looks as we moved through so quickly. They ran out of wheelchairs so Tom decided to just walk it. Mint gets a designated line for security so that worked out well. Flight was uneventful and we arrived in Vegas at 10:30 am

    Love the room we got. It’s on the 38th floor facing the Venetian tower and the Mirage. It will be the perfect spot to watch the Mirage volcano. First order of business was to upgrade our players cards and get on with the gambling. Lots of new video style slots but have to say they pretty much broke my budget. Down to my last $50 so I switched to the older machines and quickly recovered my losses. So, back to the room while I’m ahead!

    Vegas is mobbed. I had heard there were long waits for restaurants but we were able to walk right into Grand Luxe which worked out perfectly. The more upscale spots really do require reservations though. People are compliant with the mask wearing and it is possible to social distance in the casino.

    More later….

    I have to admit I still have some anxiety about traveling but glad we came. This past week I was having issues with allergies which made the asthma kick in. This means coughing! We’ll, people aren’t going to know I’m not contagious! Unfortunately, at lunch today I coughed and the lady at the next table moved and gave me a disgusting look. I get it so I apologized and told her I have asthma and that I was not contagious!! Fortunately, the cough is not constant.

    Cool view!!

    I hear ya about the cough and the stink eye.
    I got sick a week ago, upper respiratory thing and then allergies kicked in as well.
    The cough was persistent and it was embarrassing.

    Feel better and WIN please!!

    First, so glad you guys made it to Vegas! I've been eagerly waiting for your trip report, I've enjoyed reading yours in the past about your Vegas trips! Very excited for you both! I too have allergies and get the "look" when I have to wipe by runny nose and cough on occasion when I'm out and about wearing my mask. That's just what people do it seems now. I just move on and ignore the glares. The view you have from your room is amazing! Enjoy your trip and thanks for posting!
