The last two months have been quite hectic in my work and until the last minute I was thinking of not to taking this trip but a very interesting seminar was taking place in Las Vegas. Normally I don't like to attend seminars but this one I was quite interesting to just let it go.
Today I only have time to make a three hour afternoon walk around the closest casinos to my hotel.
New York-New York Hotel & Casino
I stayed at the MGM. No wonder the United States is a nation of fat people, three days in the hotel gym costs me 60 dollars.
MGM Grand Hotel & Casino
The owners of these hotels really now how to impress people. For example, the MGM Grand is one of the largest hotels in the world with 5034 rooms and suites in five, 30 story, ugly emerald green towers.
Excalibur Hotel & Casino
Excalibur includes a magical medieval castle, with a moat and fire-breathing dragon.
Luxor Hotel & Casino
Luxor is rated as one of the best in the United States.
I wanted to watch a movie at Imax but tomorrow I have to wake up early. Among other interesting things, Luxor features a full-scale reproduction of King Tutankhamen Tomb.
People say that there is a good Mexican restaurant at Luxor, I decided to give it a try.
Fajitas de carne, pollo and camaron
And yes, I ate everything. The fajitas are not as good as the ones that I tasted last year in San Antonio but for someone who doesn't know anything about Mexican food they won't notice the difference.
Luxor is named after the Egyptian city in upper Egypt.
I was told that Excalibur's Round Table buffet is in the bottom third in Las Vegas. Excalibur has the biggest buffet in town but according to this person they use low-grade meats sitting under heat lamps. Opposite comments were made about Mandalay Bay buffet and Aladdin. I don't know if it is true or not, but I will better skip Excalibur's buffet.
