In the Desert

Well, not literally. This week I find myself in Reno, NV. It is an interesting town, being heavily dependent on casino and tourism revenue. In fact, I am staying at a casino this week, the Grand Sierra, because my company has a nice negotiated rate on rooms there. I've also noticed that food prices seem to be quite reasonable. I guess that is because it is like Vegas, and they expect to make money off of you at the tables and the slot machines, rather than on the standard services.

One interesting thing was flying into the airport. It is not a very big airport, and it looks pretty old. However, on the inside, the terminals are villed with slot machines, video poker machines, and other machines like that. That was different. I do have a nice view from my room, though. I don't know what mountains they are, but I get to look at mountains in the morning, which is pretty sweet.
