Back in Las Vegas Day 1

Aloha Everyone,

The two of us are happy to be back at KOA Las Vegas. There have been some visible upgrades to the facility including free WiFi.

This morning we engaged the service of Red Rock RV Wash. The request was on site professional wash and wax. It took 2 & 1/2 hours to complete the task.  We were charged $207, based on the length, and JJ gave a $20 tip.

While Honu was getting cleaned, J.J. and I took the free shuttle to downtown. Here are some scenes.  

We also had J.J.'s 'must have' Saimin and potstickers at the Main Street Café in California Hotel. I think the best Saimin is served at Shiro Saimin in Hawaii, but J.J. was satisfied. Saimin is a plantation era modified food common in Hawaii. It includes elements from Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Hawaiian and Portuguese cultures. (Source: Wikipedia).

Watching people of all ethnicity, young and old rubbing the stomach of The Laughing Buddha made me realize how both serious and casual gamblers believe in superstition. The Laughing Buddha symbolizes wealth, abundance, prosperity and happiness.

Honu is once again shiny and beautiful :-)

Aloha -- Cathi
