When we visited years ago you could rent small motorcycles, vespa type, for the day and explore. Did you happen to notice if this was still available?



I didn't notice that.

There was also a true Argentinian Steak House serving imported and delicious Argentine beef. While that sounds and reads odd, Argentine beef seems difficult to get outside Argentina. Did you notice? It was excellent and famous.



Yes, there was an Argentinian steak house right by my hotel, where I ate once. You'll probably pull your hair out but I ordered fish. I'm trying to cut back on red meat.

Thanks, a great report and great memories.



Thank you.

Thank you for all the corrections. I just made them. Wasn't sure what you meant by the lighthouse edit.

No, I was expected to know like a dozen digits. I tried just now and got the first nine right. Appreciating pi is not about reciting it to lots of decimal places. It is to show a love, appreciation, and respect for all of mathematics.

I don't think a review of Aruba gambling holds much weight if Alhambra wasn't visited.

That's "the nuts" of Aruba gambling.

I was with the family and my leash is only so long.

I was recently playing craps at the Marriott Stellaris casino. $10 minimum, ďfull doubleĒ odds meaning 2-2-2.5

I started betting the minimum $10, but when a 5/9 was the point and I put $20 in odds behind, a dealer would tell me I could put $40 in odds if my flat bet was $15. If the point was 6/8 and I put $25 in odds behind, a dealer would say I could put $50 in odds if my flat bet was $15.

So I increased my flat bets to $15 though I could not understand how they were calculating the maximum odds bets even though they tried to explain. The only thing that was clear was that max odds bets on 4/10 is always 2x.

Can anyone explain this ?

My only guess is that they basically give you a $5 credit (to the flat bet) for max odds calculation if it makes the winning odds payout 4x the flat bet. That way max odds pays 4x flat for all points. $60 on a $15 flat bet

so 2/2.67/3.33 odds?
thats 2/3's of 3/4/5 odds
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)

Apparently so. However, I think they only allow you to exceed 2/2.5 if the odds come out exactly to 2.67/3.33.

For instance, if you have $15 flat and the point is 5, they will let you put $40 in odds (2.67x). However, if you have $20 flat I donít think they let you put over $40 in odds even though, for instance, $50 would be under 2.67x. $20 isnít divisible by 3 so you canít get to a round number with 2.67

Very strange in my opinion
