dante's cove - kevin

viva las vegas

Ahhh, Las Vegas.  You've changed but, then again, you haven't.  It's 40c here but it's a dry heat, no humidity, so after my last trip, this is nothing!

Yesterday was spent at the Bellagio, Ceaser's & Venetian.  Visited Madam Tussaud's Wax Museum -- some of those wax figures freaked me out, especially the eyes, too realistic.  Watched the pirate show at Treasure Island.  What happened to the cool show with the fighting and the pirates performing all these high dives off the ship?  It's now this song-and-dance crap with half-naked girls and like 5 guys.  It was so extremely bad.  Also saw the water fountain show in front of the Bellagio.  Felt very Ocean's 11 like.

I completely crashed when we got back to the hotel.  Fell asleep on top of the covers so woke up like a hour later freezing cause of the AC.  All caught up on my sleep now so yay.

Today we head down to the southern end of the strip to visit Luxor, Mandalay Bay and New York, New York.
