Day 365: Vegas at night

We started the day (and by started, I mean 12:01 AM) at the bar at the top of THEhotel. Gorgeous view of the strip. I thought it was a fitting last post on my 365!

Now this is the type of chip I like to see.

Day 363: A room with a view

The view from our hotel room was of the gorgeous pools at Mandalay Bay...much quality time was spent here!

Day 362: Empty flight

The flight to Vegas from Washington DC was SO empty that I had an entire row of six seats to myself. And I wasn't the only one. I think there were maybe 15 people total on the plane. Even the flight attendant commented that she hadn't seen a flight this empty in years.

Day 361: The new kids come for dinner

As it's the start of a new academic year, the new post-docs and fellows have arrived and are settling in. This is the position S was in just a year ago. How far he's come since then! Remembering the confusion and chaos of that time, we invited Vani and Tariq over for a homecooked Indian meal. It was also Ganesh Chaturthi, so we thought it would be good to celebrate a bit. I think everyone would agree the night was very successful.

Day 360: Dinner with David

Our friend David was in town, so he came by and hung out with us for a bit before he had to head off to a wedding reception in the afternoon. The reception ended sort of early, so he gave us a call and he came back over to our place. We had a few drinks (he claims I got him a bit drunk with my newfound knack for making gimlets) and then went for dinner. He stayed the night as well. I love having unexpected guests!

Day 359: An unexpected pleasure

I completely didn't expect a postcard from the Mediterranean, but I was quite pleased to get one! I love receiving postcards. That's a hint, by the way!

Day 358: What's wrong with this picture?

Could it be that there's a mattress in the living room? We've had a heat wave over the past week and finally I couldn't bear to go into the hot bedroom to sleep (we only have A/C in the living room). So we moved the guest room's mattress in the living room. It was a mini sleepover!

Day 357: City Hall

I walk by City Hall on most days when I'm on my way back home from work.
