Jet lag

Here we all are again then. Trip 10. Flights were fine, though the usual scramble to get through immigration etc and to the connecting gate. Mild panic when Max was not given a boarding pass for Las Vegas, but after some confusion he ended up in first class. Rental vans brand new - mine has done 4 miles - and our budget motel is as it ever was. 5.45 am and the airport has started up which wakes us from our jet laggy sleep.  Students all fine, everyone happy and excited. If only the weather doesn't turn bad - predicted to be colder, windier and even rainier than usual for the time of year.

Today the city - casinos, suburbs, the urban wasteland of Las Vegas. But first the greatest contribution America has made to the world -  breakfast in a diner.


We are here. Flights uneventful and connections all made, despite my usual anxieties. 5am body  time so sleep beckons now. More tomorrow

Gearing up

We leave tomorrow. The weather in Las Vegas is set to be unseasonably sunny on Tuesday - up to 83F, but unfortunately we arrive after sunset... Later in the week not so good, thunderstorms and rain scheduled for Thursday
