I’d never been to Vegas before. I don’t drink, I don’t gamble, and most of my trips are solo. As much as I’ve wanted to visit the
city, I didn’t know what I’d do with myself.
I thought Vegas VegFest would be a great introduction to Sin City. I flew out for the day to see what the vegan scene in Vegas is all about. It started out great! Lots of vendors, delicious food, and I got to connect with a few other “internet vegans” I’d never
met in real time. I was chatting it up with a new friend when it started to rain. Then it hailed. Everything was a blur after that.
One of the awesome girls I met invited me back to her loft to chill out and dry my soaking clothes before my flight home. It wasn’t the trip I expected it to be, but it was a reaffirmation of the beauty of our community. We look out for each other. The kindness of my new friend made me love our community even more.
