Waiting game

I seem to be doing a bit of travel related waiting at the moment.

Waiting for visas to be processed.

Waiting for waitlist to clear on some flights.

Waiting for a new hotel I've booked a stay at to open (hopefully before my visit). I've been doing some research on new Hilton hotels (and new to Hilton chains). It seems the opening dates are more of a rough guide than a firm commitment. In some cases the hotel opens earlier than stated. While in many cases the hotel opens later than stated. Later can mean several months later! Still, if they have accepted a booking they have to provide alternative arrangements. Hopefully reasonable ones rather than a poorly located dive.
