Madame Tussauds Las Vegas Wax Museum

The Madame Tussauds Las Vegas Wax Museum lives right in front of the Venetian and we’ve walked by it hundreds of times. Out front, they usually feature one of their figures so that you can take a photo with it, but we decided we should go in to see what it’s all about.

Korean Holidays for Couples

I lived in the midwest, and because there weren’t many asians there (meaning 2 in my entire high school), I grew up culturally very white and midwestern.
