    Day 17 & 18 – The taste of Oklahoma, El Reno
    The life is pretty much slow I must say, as I woke up there was nothing much to do or rather even just move out of the house. So probably you had be wondering what I am talking about and so why am I here. Well, you must know that more than the tourists places I had been wandering to see how people in different cities lives. Like we, in India or any other country may portray United States as a rich nations but they have poor people and very poor people living in here. The standard of living is high here, each person may have a car but it does not mean they are well off, I learned this when I visited suburbs of Dalton and now at Oklahoma.

    Day 4 – New York Corning Museum of Glass
    As soon as we entered the Corning Museum of Glass at Corning City I was blown away by the glass art and was really amazed at the beauty of glass. There were thousands of beautiful pieces of glass with different shapes, sizes, colors, etc. there were numerous things people can make using glass. Until, I saw the glass making demonstration here, I never knew that the shaped glasses are made with so many efforts here.

    Authenticity In Exceptional Las Vegas – Part II
    Las Vegas is an exotic destination that never lies down leisurely; it is dynamic and constantly seeks the path of developing. And, even if it touches the path of success, it doesn’t sit there accumulating an appraisal, which is why this destination is sitting on the peaks of glory. Therefore, the concept of strip casino has been polished incessantly since the western theme resorts and ranches of the 1940’s. During the 1950’s and 1960’s, the casinos branded themselves as plush tropical retreat located at the completion of extensive wilderness when people used to cover the ways by the means of car.

    Exploring New York, The City Of Diversity And Contrast
    There are so many movies made about New York that even if you have not visited the place you have thorough knowledge about it. Most of the people are familiar with icons like Statue of Liberty and Empire State building. I have visited the apple city a couple of times but I still feel I have only scratched the surface. It is a city of diversity and contrast. The mix of different cultures that is seen in New York is probably more evident than any other city in the world. You will come across the elegant architecture of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) to the fine Beaux-Arts building that is Grand Central Station – a spot for many romantic meetings since it was built in 1903. You have everything from Chinatown to Little Italy to the skyscrapers of Wall Street and the now fashionable areas of Soho and Tribeca along with the little  [...]
