Hi all,

I’m traveling to Brooklyn for work one night this week. When I googled the hotel, the first thing that came up is that it supposedly has an amazing pool. I think I might have some free time in my agenda, though I’m not sure, and I would really like to spend some time in this pool.

However, it seems... inappropriate? There will be other people in my industry, mainly men, who I haven’t met, also staying at this hotel, and I feel like if I bump into them while I’m in a swimsuit I’ll be at a disadvantage, even if it’s perceived and not actual.

What would you do? Is it worth skipping the pool just to avoid potentially awkward situations? If I end up with free time and the weather is nice, should I just play Pokemon Go in high-traffic areas instead? Thanks!
