corner view : souvenir

Queen
Ah, Reno. You are such a funny little town. You aren't quite as well know (these days at least) as your southerly sister, Las Vegas, but you still pack a good punch. Your full of playing cards and poker chips. Cigarette smoke and whiskey. But you also offer so much more for those who dare to venture outside the casino walls.

So really, what your visitors take away with them is what they choose. Maybe they will leave you with their pockets empty but with their head full of memories of this amazing high desert that I call home.

  2. The high desert .... not enough is said about it .... why go there and be indoors surrounded by cigarette smoke 24/7? I don't get it!
