Star-Spangled Journey: I Did Not Take The Left Turn in Albuquerque


If you ever get lost and want to find your way back to Albuquerque,
look for and move towards the mountain.

Remember that classic line of Bugs Bunny whenever he got lost? He'd always say, "I know I shoulda taken that left turn in Albuquoikey (Albuquerque).


But me ending up in Albuquerque was not because I missed the left turn. Nor I got lost in the middle of nowhere. The Duke City is where I should be at that time.

I had the biggest surprise that day in Santa Fe when I saw the Bataan Memorial Building. What significance does Bataan have in the history of New Mexico?

Star-Spangled Journey: Hotel-Hopping the Las Vegas Way


The Fountain Show at Bellagio

One of the main attractions in Las Vegas is its row of hotels. A hotel is no longer a place where you retire for the night after a day of shopping, sightseeing and casino luck. In fact, the hotels in Las Vegas have become tourist destinations themselves.

Star-Spangled Journey: Enjoying Manilow and In-N-Out



A big thanks to Gerald Gutierrez for treating us to the Barry Manilow concert at the Paris Las Vegas. We spent the whole afternoon hotel-hopping and our friend's house was quite a distance from the concert venue so we never got to change for the night's show. While the rest of the concertgoers were spiffy, we had to make do with our afternoon get-up, kept ourselves neat and sprayed on some perfume so we would somehow at least look presentable.

Pool Area of Red Rock



Most tourists flock The Strip. This is where the action is in Vegas. But there are nice places outside The Strip which are worth your time.
