I took breakfast in a restaurant in the hotel. I took a buffet.
There were not many choices, but boy, weren’t they good!
I was looking for a simple American breakfast with bacon and eggs and juice and coffee. I had exactly what I wanted. The bacon was crispy and rich and apparently not healthy; this is what I was looking for. Sausages were juicy,too.
Then I went to join the conference at Westin.
I took a nap on the sofa in the lobby for one hour.
The last talk ended at 6 PM. I took subways to the hotel.
By the lobby, I found a showcase showing the history of the hotel and the region.
I left the hotel for dinner.
I found a bar named FiRE +iCE. It looked to be a decent restaurant from outside. I thought I would take a salad and a glass of wine.
After I took a seat, the waitress asked me whether it was my first visit. After my yes, she started to explaine about its “Mongolian-style grill” system. It was not my expectation!
I decided my mind to enjoy the “Mongolian style”. They had a big hot plate in the middle of the restaurant, and cooks grilled an ingredients in a bowl customers selected.
Although I was looking for something different, the food was OK. The price was not that high.
After I came back to the hotel, I called to Katya. She sounded fine.
Then, I talked with an American family whom I stayed with for one year during my high school days in Houston, Texas, who are now moved to Austin. I heard a news that my American brother had been married last month, which was a good surprise.
