Some misc TK flight photos

Pretty tasty food (I pre-ordered seafood meals), good seat back entertainment system (I watched 3 movies), but not much legroom.I was get a seat in the last 3 rows where it’s a 2-3-2 seating (B777) vs the normal 3-3-3, which gives more shoulder room. And this time the fuselage wasn’t oddly rounded too close to my head like my previous TK flight years ago.Oh, and the safety video had Lego Batman!

Las Vegas has changed in the last 3 or 4 years…

Since I was last there.

For better:

  • Blue recycle bins on the street
  • Bike share stations
  • More express buses (the SDX had just opened last time and is way faster than the painfully slow Deuce)
  • More newer bars and restos on East Fremont
  • Higher longer zipline downtown in the Fremont Experience


  • New casinos on the strip (mostly replacing older ones)
  • More big box pharmacies on the strip
  • Little liquor stores on the strip

    For worse:

    • Lots of closed casinos and shops downtown
    • Half the poker rooms downtown are no morw
    • More panhandlers

      Misc funny moments

      • Waitress insisted the daily happy hour ended at 5pm. I pointed to the sign on the wall that read in foot high letters 4 – 6 pm 
      • Airport check-in person asked if I had a return flight out of Canada. Not needed, I say. Do you have a visa? Not required for US citizens, I say. She keeps reading through the fine print and agrees.

      Atlanta – not so Hotlanta right now

      Sunny and chilly wind…

      Clockwise from top left

      • 3 stadiums aide by side!?
      • Statue downtown of chicken chain’s big investment in scholarships over the years
      • Statue of woman who helped reshaped downtown
      • Indian lunch: salad with dal, veggies and a nice hot green sauce
      • New stadium under construction (reverse side of the leftmost stadium in the other photo)
      • Flatiron building! cf near St Lawrence Market in Toronto
      • Thats one big wreath! And the fire hydrant in front has a plaque: the first display of water system in 1875
