July 4: Las Vegas to Philly

Whew. Expensive taxi (USD30!). But off to Philly through Chicago. Experienced my first thorough airport check-in security check-up. Good to have WiFI (USD 7) in O'Hare. Checked in at Courtyard Inn in Philly -- arriving 12 midnight.

July 3 -- Walk, walk, walk

Haha. After the workshop with UPMASA, I spent the night breaking the casino bank (yes, I won 25 dollars), and walking around the strip from Wynn to Circus then back then again to Denny's but chickened out.

Finally got my steak at Terrace Pointe inside Wynn :(

July 4 on air

Spent most of July 4th on the air -- that is on a plane. Left Vegas in the morning towards Chicago. After a four hour stopover, finally reached Philadelphia at 11PM. Yes, I missed the fireworks! :(

O'Hare had good wifi though...

Halfway around the world

Jetlagged. Now in Candlewood Las Vegas trying to get some sleep. It's 5pm in Manila so what do we expect?

When I checked in, I learned about the terror plot in UK and Glasgow and the heightened alert in LAX. I hope it all settles down within the week because I'll be there soon...

Room has gigabit Internet! I can send video to the Orange Kubo Hotel.
