Who Wants a Pleistocene-Era Backyard?
While casting about for feel-good stories, we remembered the lost and starving Magellanic penguins that were airlifted to safety by the Brazilian army last fall. The young penguins, whose home is in the southern Atlantic, had wandered too far north, washing up on the warm beaches of Brazil by the hundreds, and the situation looked grim when "animal-welfare activists loaded the birds onto a Brazilian air force cargo plane and flew them 1,550 miles to the country's southern coast, where a crowd of onlookers celebrated as the penguins marched back into the sea." Definite feel-good material.
Swimming Pool at Monte Carlo Hotel Casino

Circus Circus is nonstop action, and not just in the casino. The Adventuredome is a great place to keep kids entertained and offers pay-one-price tickets for theme park rides. The dome, while keeping the weather out, keeps the noise in. The hotel corridors and rooms are also decorated in a rather noisy style. Circus acts are performed every twenty minutes and can been seen from the casino and most of the restaurants. Honestly, the whole place gives me a headache.
