Imagine that your retirement plan ends up being Skid Row and homelessness. Vir retired in Nevada and relocated to Skid Row to survive. Vir says Las Vegas has a very limited choice of services and Skid Row has many, and that’s the reason he decided to move here.

Vir says there is good and bad on Skid Row. The good is you can sleep, the bad is people steal from you!

Vir hopes in a couple of years he’ll be able to go home! For Vir, home is Manila, Philippines. I really hope he gets to do just that!
