An Egyptian friend of mine had been a consultant on the building of the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas. When it first opened, it even had a Nile River cruise, complete with tour-guide. And so, before my second trip to Egypt, I thought it was worth checking out.
I was never much into gambling, that is, until I started winning…though after loosing my winnings, I lost interest again, but that’s another story.
I have, however, been to Las Vegas many many times, because it was my Mother’s favorite place. We would usually meet there for Mother’s Day, and one of the things I enjoyed the most, was visiting the various “theme” hotels. In fact, one year, when I did not travel overseas, my “travel” Christmas card (a joke) was made up of scenes from Vegas hotels.
