I have never been out of the United States. My college roommates and I thought it was a good idea to fly out to Rio with a couple of girls from the sorority rather than go back home and spend the holidays with our parents. I have not regretted this decision at all and am winning big at the blackjack table. So far I am up four grand and plan to cash out when we leave the casino accommodation tomorrow. I made sure to set myAdt Home Security before the flight left last week. With four thousand dollars I am able to pay my tuition for next term. I know when to quit and that is when one is ahead. My uncle made a mistake that is now famous in the family. He doubled up on a bad hand and lost his year's wages instead of being set for another two years.
Rio is a magnificent place to spend Christmas. I have enjoyed the food, the weather, the women, the company, the casino, and the drinks. We have taken about a thousand pictures on my camera so far. I think the memory card is going to fill up within the next two or three days. This shouldn't be a problem as I am now much happier and richer than I was a week ago.
