Viva Las Vegas



I love that the strip is close to the airport so when you land in Vegas at night, you see the lights and it makes you more excited. Of course, I didn't see the lights... because I was sitting on the opposite side of the plane. But yes, you get it.

I love that the strip is filled with hotels trying to out-do each other in grandeur and awesomeness, each trying to attract the next loser. Loser, I mean, literally - as in one who will gamble and lose all their money. Yet, all casinos are seedy and similar. Despite the amazingness that is the Venetian or the Bellagio on the outside, casinos never look "pretty". They're all filled with smoke and corny slot machines.

I love that you can walk the streets holding beer bottles, wine glasses, margaritas, and giant pina coladas in Eiffel Towers.

I love that you can go somewhere and actually order a PITCHER of Long Island Iced Tea for $35... when three Long Island Iced Teas alone cost about the same at the SAME place.

I love that airfare and hotel combined for 4 days are cheaper than a trip for two nights to New York City.

I love the fountains at the Bellagio when they play "Viva Las Vegas" and you're drinking a Metropolitan and eating filet mignon on a patio with heat lamps at night. (Though I do not love the Treasure Island "Sirens of TI" pirate ship show. Though, it is kind of hilarious. Though it's not meant to be.)

I love that it's in the middle of the dessert.

I love that there's so much to do at all hours of the day and night. Even if you choose to sleep in all day and not do anything... or if you choose to do the same thing every night.

God, I love Vegas.


Oh, and p.s. Roberto made me a new header and it looks so awesome! I love Roberto!
