It’s not often that you get a UN Diplomat as a tour goer. Erich, from Manhattan, joined us for an afternoon tour last week. He had a keen interest in history and seemed intent on learning more about how Las Vegas came to be. He was one of those rare visitors who knew that the fortunes of Vegas grew tremendously because of Castro’s revolution in Cuba. “You ought to build a statue of Fidel in Las Vegas,” he mused, “as an unintentional God Father.” Erich came dressed, with unusual style. So I found the perfect place for a photo, at this classic Victorian corner of Main Street Station that included an antique painting of sorts with a title, “Monte Carlo.” In fact, I waited all year for just the right person to show up for this. Post card perfect.
