Podcast #26 Las Vegas

Published in the category General Practice, Special Activities

Las Vegas is one of the most ridiculous places anywhere. It is a make-believe world for adults. People go there determined to have a good time. There is more than one definition of a good time.

Gambling is naturally the big attraction. For some people gambling is an addiction. They are just unable to stop. The ads for Las Vegas show everyone laughing as they win money. The reality is unsmiling people who are losing money.

The entertainment is first-class. There are many excellent restaurants. Many of the hotels represent foreign places. France is a couple of blocks from Egypt and across the street from Italy. That’s the general idea.

Prepare yourself if you are planning to visit Vegas. Calculate the exact amount of money you want to gamble. Don’t expect to win. Understand that much of what you experience there is fake. Get ready to empty your mind and have a good time.
