Day 5 Jamaica Trip April 2024

 Today my friends aunt was coming to pick us up at 10. I went for breakfast at 9:30. My friend was there earlier and she got some plantains today but they weren’t very ripe. Breakfast was the same as yesterday for me so I didn’t take any pictures. In the morning I did call for some bottles of water to my room but it was too early I learned I could get some at the buffet.  My friends aunt was delayed so had time to sit at the coffee shop. This was the view from the coffee area. We chatted with security and the taxi driver at the hotel for awhile before we left. We didn’t leave the hotel until 12. My friends aunt got proper plantains we ate it in the car. Today we decided to go to Ocho Rios. I have never been there and it is not that far from where we are staying. We have a driver booked for tomorrow to take us around the area and Bob Marley house tour. My friends aunt wanted Pizza Hut we stopped in a plaza that had KFC, Starbucks, and Pizza Hut. Last time I was in Jamaica I saw the plan

High Roller Las Vegas

I had bought a groupon for the VIP car on the highroller in Vegas. The highroller is one of the new attractions in Vegas they call it the world's largest observation wheel its like a nice ferris wheel. The ride is 30 minutes overlooking the Vegas strip. The VIP car's have private bars on them and there is an option to go during the day or at night. We were staying at the Linq and the high roller is connected with the hotel so it was a short walk away. I don't drink but I preferred to be in a private car away from kids and my companion was capable of drinking enough for two people. We chose the night as that is the best time to see vegas. There wasn't a line up at all when we went it was around 11 pm and they gave us some coupons for the brooklyn bowl and the souvenir shop but we didn't use those. There were only 4 people in our car. Our bar tender was very nice but he was bored the drinks were unlimited but there is only so much to do when you only have to serve a few people. We got our drinks the standard free bar drinks including juice and pop for me. There are benches to sit on or you can stand if you want and there are windows on both sides so you can walk around and look out the windows. The view is great the car moves very slowly so you have time to see everything. My pictures are with my phone through the window so the view was really nice. There was tv's with a guy doing a commentary and trivia. It was like a bad after school special that part needs to be improved. My friend found her drink to weak so the next one she asked for a stronger one and I heard her yelling I said strong not kill me. The bartender put a bit of almost everything that was in the bar in that drink including pop and juice. My friend who can drink a lot without getting drunk got drunk after that drink but at least the bartender was following instructions. I don't think we got our money's worth on the alcohol part but we did on the view and the privacy of the car. This is one of those attractions that would be good to do once. The prices are much higher than they used to be put there are coupons everywhere we also did get a coupon book with our stay at the linq that had a highroller coupon in it.
