"You never know who you're going to run into when you're traveling. I've seen TV personality Jerry Springer three different times while traveling for Hotel Management—once in Las Vegas (pretty predictable), once in the Palm Court at The Plaza in New York (not so predictable) and a third time in the glass elevator at the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. I still wonder what he was doing there. Maybe he's wondering the same about me. "
