  1. This lady helped us when we had bank troubles in Vegas! We had to get a flight which was going to leave in about an hour and had no way of getting there, and if I missed that flight I would miss my flight back home to England (we just got married so we we definitely couldn't afford another flight). We met her by the pool a day before and she was real awesome and sweet. We tried everything to try transfer funds but with no luck, out of desperation we messaged Catalina who happened to be nearby in the hotel. She gave us $30 and told us to "just go quick!" She really is an angel and I'm so happy to hear she got out safely, good karma really does come around.
