My family that included my father, mother, and youngest brother arrived at San Francisco International on a Sunday afternoon. It was a nice experience meeting them at the airport. I had stayed for 18 months before going back to South Korea and hence their arrival marked a great reunion especially for my young brother who was marking his fifth birthday on that day. Being their first visit in America, their faces registered amazement. I drove them to my residence through the busy streets that seemed to welcome the new visitors in the city. My family praised the cool weather and fresh air that welcomed them to Irvine. After spending the night at my place, we decided to start our vacation at Las Vegas. The jet lag could not allow us to talk much over the night as my brother dozed off before supper. As one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Las Vegas gladly welcomed another bunch of visitors with South Korean origin. After walking through the busy and entertaining streets of Las Vegas, the casinos and the hotels drew our interest. We booked ourselves in the refurbished Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino for four days. During our stay at the casino, we sampled various foods from top chefs that included South Korean cuisines. On our second day, we visited the Nevada State Museum and the Neon Museum where we experienced old signs take on new life. We also visited the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef where the toothy sea life mesmerized my brother.
