    My Trip Report

    Hi everybody once again, i write my second trip and try to make it short and put the most interesting.

    I left chihuahua at 14:30hrs Saturday and arrive to las vegas at 9:00hrs Sunday, i guess i did good time, only slept 3 hours in a rest area in Phoenix.

    In this time just going my wife, my son 22 years old and my Little daugther (15), my other daugther(21) stay in home because she begining to work, she finished the university(international trade degree), she was sad because she wants come whit us. Well life is so!!!

    What was the new in this trip:
    We know and ate at the garden court buffet of MSS
    I start to ghater chips of $1 for each hotel that i was, 25 chips total
    In this trip I drank (first time) beer michelob ultra one after another and next day i was suprised nothing of “ hang over” excellent beer.

    What was the routine:
    Hotel – Stratosphere is like a home we know the hotel is our 6ht stay therein a room select with mini fridge floor 20 and view at strip,not bad for $367 a week, “thanks Fredi my family is very grateful to you”
    Food - ellis island steak special $7.99, Panda express our visit forced when we come to vegas or any place where there are panda express, my daugther likes too much
    Gambling – we were several hotels casinos in down town , off the strip and the strip, some Money my wife and i loose, my only big win was $500, but once again back to the slots or blackjack table.well at least we got more time playing.

    The events:
    I was in blackjack table, when arrive a civilian and we were playing and talking about us our contry and whtever, when he finished your Money said me goodbye, ok i said, see you an other acation, pass i guess 5 or 10 minuts and me too retire to sleep , and i see a cell in the chair where he was seated(was a great cell the newest), well i take the cell and i heading up to room, i tells my family, in this moment he calls ,and the dispute was whether or not, I was to give him the cell.
    Well finally, i gave him the cell was the best to my conscience i remembered “ the law of Karma”

    The most fun
    We going to the MSS at buffet, inside of the casino, my wife go a few steps head of me, she stops to see a woman shout and very happy, my wife share the joy with she, and surprisingly give to my wife $20 like gift, my wife said no,but she insisted ok said my wife, then my daughter also approached and give her too $20, I approach and also, not knowing what happens, until I saw the machine, and she had won $ 5,000 dlls, and she also gave me another $ 20. Well everybody was happy. And i remembered once again “the law of Karma”

    Well our vacations finished, like always we very sad because we left las vegas, and we wait for next year for more fun, I hope this report is to your liking, sorry for my poor english

    Thanks for the report

    Your English is fine.

    Imagine what our reports would be like if we tried to write in Spanish?

    Yes, returning property to people is always good Karma. Taking property from people is BAD KARMA.

    "In this trip I drank (first time) beer michelob ultra"

    ha ha ha! I find that hard to believe. Are you telling us there is no Michelob in Mexico? I see Mexicans in NYC mostly drink Corona or Bud.

    So how is it you could afford 10 trips to Vegas at all? You must do real well to be able to go there so often. Been anywhere else? Paris, London, Japan?

    You lost me when you were debating on possibly keeping the persons lost cell phone.

    I've found at least 6 cell phones in my 11 years here in Vegas and made sure they got back to their owners every time. At least 3 of them were iPhones. The last time I found one it was in the middle of the dance floor at Tryst. I asked everyone around the area if they lost a phone and no one did. I went to the entrance and there was some huge African American girl screaming at security cause she thought they had stolen it. I tapped her on the shoulder and had her friend call the phone as it was in my hand. When it rang I handed it back to her. She jumped all over me hugging me and thanking me, her happiness was thanks enough but as her and her friend were leaving her friend grabbed me in a hug and shoved $180 in my back pocket as they took off. I told her it wasn't necessary but she refused to take it back.

    You find a phone, hold on to it until the person who lost it calls it cause 100% they will call the phone.

    I apologize!!!

    Forgive me if I seem if I was going to keep with the cell, but im trying to say
    that at in no time i would do that. and i said the conscience and the law of karma is more strong than have a cell in my pocket.

    Forgive me once again, but i dont want seem like if i want to keep the cell.

    Thanks KingBBinLV!!!!!

    Excellent report!

    Hearing again from you makes me very happy!

    I am the one who told you that I took the train across the Copper Canyon.

    Two weeks ago, I was enjoying a very pleasant stay at MSS, and ate at least one meal per day at
    the Garden Court Buffet.

    I hope that you are able to return to Las Vegas soon!

    You see there! There are people who can decipher what is said or being said. Oh jms5180, where for art thou.

    I'm glad you all had a good time in Vegas, always remember that "law of Karma" some tend to forget how it works.

    About finding cell phones. I've found my share. One time I was waiting for the owner to call whole day, never did.
    As for important info on phones; copy it all down to paper, or to computer. People's lifes are now on cell phones... bad idea.
    BTW, all my files are encrypted.

    I'm very impressed with your English. It is incredibly hard to express exactly what you mean in another language, let alone in writing. Kudos! I did enjoy reading, thanks for posting and I hope you do make it back in 6 months.
