First Visit to Vegas

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

Everyone said that I should go to Las Vegas.  People were incredulous that I had never been there.  I resisted.

“It’s decadent!”  “I hate gambling!” “Look at all that waste of electricity!”

Finally, in 2008, I went to Vegas.  

Excess and excitement

Precisely the reasons I refused to go are the reasons to experience Las Vegas – at least once.

Entering Vegas from the south, we experienced the excess and elegance that is Vegas.  A wedding party was camped out at the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign, immortalizing their vows and blocking traffic.
