I am including below a video of the boutique hotel we stayed at.

Marco just relaxing!

    1. Dear Linda, the joke we heard in Las Vegas: a woman complains to her husband, “How can I go out? It’s 104 in the shade!” “So who says you have to walk in the shade, ” he retorts.

      Thank you for stopping by, dear friend!

    1. For my husband and I, there were delicious drinks and lots of fun, since the restaurant is not kosher and we can’t eat there. But Gary and his friends enjoyed the meal.
