    My NOT ArubaTR

    Thought I would do a very quick NOT Aruba trip report. We touched down in Vegas on Tuesday at 9:00 am after a fabulous Mint flight on JetBlue from Boston. I justified buying mint seats as it was such an early flight and I hit a sale where the seats were less than half the usual price. Of course, the room at the airport was almost as much (sigh).

    Weíre staying at the Palazzo which is great as the casino isnít too smoky and they have quite a few restaurants. Itís supposed to be 106 today so Iíll spend time at the pool this morning while Tom plays cards. The slot machines have not been kind to me this trip but I still have until Tuesday.

    Restaurants here are are consistently good. We tried Morels Steakhouse yesterday. It was off the charts good. Our filet mignon was the most tender Iíve ever had. Desserts were wonderful as well. I had a trio of creme brule and Tom had profiteroles with almond ice cream. It was nice to try new flavors instead of the standard cheesecake etc.

    Well is thatís it. In case anyone wondered why I wasnít posting much.

    You will love the Mint, especially when you get back to Boston. Your luggage will be first off and on the carousel.

    That could be worth the price no matter what, lol. I HATE waiting in Boston for the luggage. I am guessing I will sleep the entire flight as I am so sleep deprived as I wake up daily by 7am and lie there hoping to fall back to sleep.

    Seats are very comfy for sleeping. If you don’t want to be disturbed you shut off the blue light. I was impressed.

    We both made a very nice recovery today and yes I had my Djucu out. Tom hit another handpay for $2500 plus some other nice hits so we’re back feeling happy, even knowing it could be gone tomorrow. Celebrated with sweets from Carlos Bake Shop, aka the Cake Boss, Buddy V.

    I am so jealous. Palazzo is beautiful. We hav stayed there in the past. I have not been back since we started to go to Aruba. I love slot machines and to gamble in Vegas. There is no other place as great to gamble. There are so many restaurants and shows. Enjoy and good luck.
