Monte Carlo is the most famous part of the small country of Monaco. This is the home of the casino. Note that there is no photography allowed in the casino. When I first went there many years ago, a coat and tie were required, which of course I had neither, and they let me borrow a bright red jacket and ugly tie, which were way to small for me, but met the requirements. I played 21 (blackjack) and lost my first bet as a push (tie) with the dealer, which in Monte Carlo means you lose the bet. That was the last time I lost anything gambling in Monte Carlo.
