AUG 23, 16 .. RENO, NEVADA

What can I say except to say: "Is this Post a case of it being Better-Late-Than-Never?"

Once upon a time, last May the 24th 2016 to be exact, I flew from Hong Kong to Seattle Washington U.S.A.

It wasn't until July the 22nd 2016 that I finally published a Post showing details of the trip from Hong Kong to Seattle and also photos that I took while in Seattle for two days.

I met Patti in Seattle on May the 26th and the two of us began an absolute-whirlwind of travel.

So? So Here-We-Go-Loop-De-Loop.

RENO, NEVADA

In no way do the few photos below approach anything like a complete photo-shoot of Reno. Reno is what it is, and what little we actually saw and that I photographed in Reno you see in the following photos.

IF you ever go to Reno, Nevada, you must see the below Gateway To Reno sign.




On the left of the above photo of the Gateway To Reno sign you see Harrah's one of the most famous of the numerous Hotels and Casinos in Reno.

Below are photos of Harrah's.






Below are photos of the Harrah's Casino.



One of my personal favorites in Reno is Circus Circus. I really like its name and its colorful exterior décor.






 Below you see what I mean about its colorful exterior décor.


CIRCUS CIRCUS Reno Nevada.


The casino.




All of the Reno Casinos I have visited have sports bars with multiple television sets covering a wide range of sporting events.




That will be it for Reno. Patti and I stayed one pleasant night (May the 26th) in Reno visiting with friends. Then on Friday May the 27th we two drove our rental car South from Reno to the Carson City / Dayton Nevada area. Our next Post will show views of those cities.

Smiles from Patti and from Cap.

JUL 22, 16 .. THE TRIP FROM HONG KONG TO SEATTLE

The time has finally come for me to get active back here on 'blogspot' so here we go. 

I left Hong Kong on Tuesday May the 24th 2016 via Delta Airlines Business Class. What more can I possibly say other than to state that my home bound flight back to the U.S. was in Business Class?

HONG KONG TO SEATTLE

Flying in Business Class includes a pre-flight lounge experience that is beyond-the-beyond.
I had a literal bank of computers to pick-a-favorite computer to use.



"Captain we all realize what a challenging and difficult assignment you endured on your flight back to the U.S. and believe us our prayers were with you Captain!"
Time to go Loop-De-Loop ..
Truly! It is quite an adventure just getting to your boarding gate.
My home for some 14-hours awaits me.
 We have pushed-away from our boarding gate.
 Time to taxi out for take-off.
We will be next to take-off.
Pre-flight instructions were underway as we taxied.
We are airborne! Seattle Washington U.S.A. here we come.

Legroom to spare in Business Class.

Business Class is just fantastic.

Having stuffed-myself full of munchies in the luxury lounge I had to ' face ' yet more food.
Many choices of liquid refreshment are available up front in Business Class. All of it free.

"What? More food?"

The main course finally arrives. I was about to pop-the-buttons on my shirt I was so full by this time.
"Oh Come On! This is going way-overboard here!"
"Look Captain! One more dessert just for the Marine Corps!"
Burp! Gasp! I surrender! 

"Ladies and Gentlemen this is your Captain. We are now approaching Seattle. Please fasten your seat belts and remain in your seats for the remainder of the flight. Thanks for flying with us today."

 Suddenly we were through the clouds.
Hello Seattle Washington U.S.A. 


 Here touch-down comes.
 It won't be long.
 We are on the ground. Home to the U.S. after 18-months.
SEATTLE WASHINGTON .. The Space Needle.



Hello Seattle Greg and Tsering.
 So nice to see you again.
DOWNTOWN SEATTLE.
 PIKE PLACE .. in the very heart of downtown Seattle.
