Orion Day organized by Josh

Another Sunday at the Orion, this time I brought everyone. 28 of 35 showed up to relax by the pool, eat hamburgers, drink beer and play Texas Hold em. All arranged by me with a food discount. I lost .50 cents. (The casino manager gave us some cards & chips for free, so we played amongst ourselves)

It helps being able to cut deals have to thank my independent filmmaker roots for that. Everyone had a great RELAXING TIME. Many thank yous came my way.

Typical of a casino manager, he offered me some free match play money, since he gave us the cards & chips for free, I was obligated to play a little in his casino. So there was blackjack, roulette and etc. The casino manager gave me E20 match to play in the casino when I bought in for E20 = E40. So lost the free E20 at blackjack table went and put the E20 of my money on Red and won, walked out with E40 a E19.5 profit for the day.

Oh, mystery increased why our fellow trainee was sent home, none of us are happy about the situation. Some other drama regarding another Peace Corp trainee, apparently Peace Corp has an element of Survivor the TV show.
