We started out at Foxwoods, but shifted over to Mohegan Sun when it turned out that we had been housed in an off-casino lodge.
Deb and I had been to Mohegan Sun once when it first opened, and were very impressed with the integration of a variety of Indian artifacts. We were particularly intrigued with their use of open water inside the resort building -- a series of interconnected marble standing pools and running streams culminating in a massive interior waterfall that thunders down a rock wall. It must be several stories high. Very unlike any of the casinos that we're familiar with from Las Vegas and Atlantic City.
It was a great change of pace, but it's good to be back on our home turf. Besides, I find striking it rich to be quite exhausting. (Just kidding -- I did moderately well, and at least I didn't lose my shirt!)
