I am officially no longer "roughing it". Mark and I met at the Hong Kong airport on Monday and checked in to a five star hotel at the Wynn Casino in Macau. Our room is beautiful and about the size of a one bedroom apartment in DC. We have a couch, a large bathtub, full water heat and pressure, a 5 by 8 foot mirror, modern art, a mini-bar, a desk, a huge flat screen tv, a marble table and automatic curtains that conceal a full window wall when drawn.

We splurged HK$160 on an in-room broadband connection and so I was able to fix the problem with my Webshots album and add more photos. Sorry to those of you who got on only to find no pictures. There should now be five new albums with several hundred new pictures on my page.

Last night was lucky. Mark let me play a few hands for him at the poker table and I was able to win HK$450. Together, we doubled the HK$1000 Mark put down. That is officially the most amount of money I have ever seen anyone leave a casino with.

We will check into a new hotel in Hong Kong tomorrow and from there fly to Dubai on the 28th. I will try to keep up with email but internet (and time to spend online) may get harder to come by.
