Wow! I can't wait to see it. Our secretary is visiting her sister this week there so we will have a first-hand account next week. I'll write and give it to you, but I'm definitely going to go myself soon. It only costs $100 one-way to fly there from here.

I enjoyed your story on the new "resort" in Nevada. Kudos to you and your collaborator.

The real show-stealer was the Paris Las Vegas... I was in Las Vegas last August. I was at the Bally's right next to the Paris Las Vegas casino which was then under construction. They already had the scale model Eiffel Tower partially completed and sticking out of the facade. Aside from the obvious, there is at least one difference from Paris in August - it got up to 113 degrees in Las Vegas on several days - that will sort of crisp-up your little Nevada-made croissant.

All the best, Walt

Bonjour Ric,

Enjoyed reading your article this week about the hotel 'Paris' in Las Vegas. I checked out their web page and the first thing I noticed was for the 'Hotel' category on their main page they have a picture of the palace of Versailles. I don't know about you but I don't consider the palace of Versailles as being part of Paris!

Regards, Craig

I've been to Las Vegas a couple of years ago on the way to the Grand Canyon, so I didn't think there was anything remarkable in having Paris in Nevada. In Vegas they just do these things and they think they are providing a big benefit to mankind. Anyhow there is already a Paris, Texas so why not. Also The place that really is the baseline in Vegas is the Luxor which is a full size replica of the pyramids. You haven't lived until you've had an ancient Egyptian - looking like an extra in Cleopatra - carry your bags to your room. After that the Arc de Triomphe is a doddle.

Cheers, Nigel

This may be the Paris, Las Vegas Versailles ballroom - or
some other restaurant there.

Bonjour Paris, Nevada Fans -

Paris:- Friday, 3. September 1999:- These letters, coming as they do from you hard-core Paris fans, plainly show one thing: tolerance. Like you, I too am bemused with the idea of Paris, Nevada - and consider it to be a sincere form of flattery. You can wine and dine, drink and dance, bet on the horses and find some gambling in Paris too. If this is what you consider fun, then you've come to the right place(s).
