My trip was not without adventure, as I think you knew would be the case. I've been up for like 4011 hours now. Left Austin without incident, and got to Denver, at which point all Blackberry data service ceased, which I found out later was due to the earthquake in California. Small world, it is.
While in Denver, I saw something interesting. Ask yourself a simple question. Should a tornado hit, what would you like to see flying around your head? The contents of a urinal? A toilet, perhaps? I think not. So why, in the WORLD, would this ever be the case??? Denver needs to rethink this
I'm telling you right now - any place with a toilet is not somewhere I will ever be in a natural disaster.
Now, when we arrived in SLC after a short HOT, bumpy flight, the lawyer behind me bonked me in the head with his suitcase. ouch. While waiting for my own suitcase, which I didn't intent to hit anyone with, we all watched THIS go around on the carousel. WOW. Yes, it's duct taped together. At one point, I tried to free someone else's suitcase from behind it and attempted to move it - clearly there was a body in it because it was insanely heavy!! I'm convinced Jimmy Hoffa was in there. It said right on it that it weighed 96 pounds. That's probably right for Jimmy!!
Then I was driven at an alarming rate of speed to the hotel by a chain smoking cab driver. Yikers. Enough said.
I was rewarded for my long day and case of altitude poisoning with TAKASHI - WOW. It's the highest Zagat rated restaurant in Salt Lake and that is well deserved!!!
The Strawberry Fields Roll (right) had Escolar, Strawberries, fresh chili peppers (it was REALLY hot) toasted almonds, and I'm pretty sure angels made it. I will be eating those for lunch while I'm here!! WOW.
Now I'm off to bed to prepare for a big day tomorrow! Stay tuned!!
