So wondeful! The American Dream in reverse is still possible ... from the Ritz to Rikers Island. Hopefully the "heiress" has TV in her room so she can watch the Netflix serie in her name ...
Rubbing shoulders with the "greats" walking this planet! Just like Hollywood ... mostly fake.
More below the fold ...
"As an Added Bonus, She Paid for Everything": My Bright-Lights Misadventure with a Magician of Manhattan | Vanity Fair |
On Saturday, May 13, 2017, we landed in Marrakech. Our hotel sent a V.I.P. service to greet us at the airport. We were escorted through Customs and taken to two awaiting Land Rovers. After a 10-minute drive, we pulled up to a palatial compound and entered through its gates. At the front entrance, we were welcomed by a host of men wearing fez caps and traditional Moroccan attire.
The vacation was Anna's idea. She again needed to leave the States in order to reset her ESTA visa, she said. Instead of returning home to Germany, she suggested we take a trip somewhere warm. It had been a long time since my last vacation. I happily agreed that we should explore options, thinking we'd find off-season fares to the Dominican Republic or Turks and Caicos. Anna suggested Marrakech; she'd always wanted to go. She picked La Mamounia, a five-star luxury resort ranked among the best in the world, and knowing that her selection was cost-prohibitive for my budget, she nonchalantly offered to cover my flights, the hotel, and expenses. She reserved a $7,000/night private riad, a traditional Moroccan villa with an interior courtyard, three bedrooms, and a pool, and forwarded me the confirmation e-mail. Due to a seemingly minor snafu, I'd put the plane tickets on my American Express card, with Anna promising to reimburse me promptly. Since I did this all the time for work, I didn't give it a second thought.
