After a long day of travel, almost 5 hours from Montreal to Vancouver, and then another 2 until Vegas, we made it! We flew business, so let's just say the flight was enjoyable. The part I liked best was the roomy seats. We're both tall so we both enjoyed the space and extra leg room!
We picked up our rental car and made our way to our condo, small but acceptable.
The first thing I've noticed is how big everything is. I'm not really sure I'm liking it yet... Hubby kept telling me before we came: "Everything is over the top".
The weather is nice and warm, so can't complain about that. Walked on the Strip today. The hotels are so big that walking 2 or 3 blocks is a lot. Oh yeah, I saw my first Elvis impersonator today - he was big (as in tall ), and the hair on that guy...wow... Did NOT take a picture with or of him... nah, not that one! But a took a few other shots of the Paris Hotel, some at the Bellagio and some along the Strip.
The one thing that I'm not too fond of so far, beside the discarded cards of naked girls all over the sidewalks, is the fact that a lot of people walk around with their drinks (bottles or glasses) - I find it so... well, you know... That's something I could do without seeing on the street!
We will go pick up our Hawaiian friend at the airport soon; can't wait to see her. It's been over 3 years since we last saw each other. We often talked about doing this and to actually be here with her, will be a blast I'm sure! She keeps telling me "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas"... wonder what she means by that! I'll find out soon enough I guess. Hee.
