Not Reno 9-1-1 but Reno 6-1-1

I arrived in Reno, Nevada on Wednesday, June 1 (6-11) for a month-long multimedia training fellowship provided through Maynard Institute, a renowned journalism organization.

Being selected to participate is an honor. I’ll get the opportunity to upgrade my multimedia and social media skills and learn new skills that will help me in my career.

Of course, I plan to have some fun exploring Reno. No, not the typical casinos-and-slots-at-the-airport fun but the kind that involves exploring the real Reno,real people, and real women.

So far I’m getting adjusted to a three-hour time difference; figuring out how to navigate from my apartment to the University of Nevada campus where the program is being held and hauling around more technical gear than a pack mule.

Things should get more exciting soon.

If you’ve ever been to the Reno/Lake Tahoe area, let me know what sights I should see and places I should go to find the real Reno.

If you’ve never been here, we’ll explore together.
