What Happens in Vegas

Sun and strip, Paris, New York and Venice. Clack clack! Girls, Girls, Girls Direct 2 U! Fountains, lights and casinos. Room service and dollar tips. Using the concierge like Google. Fat people at buffets and real, actual lions on the main floor. Bud Light with lime in pool-friendly tin bottles. Forgetting to eat. Pool parties at Wet Republic, blond hair, fake boobs and men with shaved chests. Spa baths in huge suites, 19th Floor MGM Grand. All day drinking, World Cup matches, Sting and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in the Grand Garden Arena. Two for one drinks everywhere at the flash of a card. Does that include...? Yes? Brilliant. Two for one Jagerbombs. Studio 54 and acrobats hanging from the ceiling. Temporary friends made. Napkins written on. Fix him with a stare and utter just one sentence: "Boyfriend, I have to go home." Sunrise seen while embracing the toilet bowl.

Vegas-1, Jo - nil. And that was just Friday; 24 hours spent entirely in the hotel.

Seriously, if I'd known this place existed before now, I would never have holidayed anywhere else. And best of all, with the $200 the Boyfriend made on the slots, we've got a new fund running...for Disneyland.

Everyone should go to Vegas. Everyone. You, you and you. Just go*

*Be prepared to lose money, sensibilities, and a rather large chunk of your liver.

LV is one of the most surreal places on earth. It has no shame about its complete lack of anything resembling depth or integrity. Everywhere you go, even a supermarket or gas station, is the incessant ding ding ding of the slots. And you can walk down the street drink in hand and it's all perfectly legal. Interesting to experience once, but on a repeated basis I fear it gets stale real fast.

I feel dizzy just reading that! Sounds awesome, Jo. Glad you're enjoying yourself :)

Vegas is not a town to be analysed - it just `is'. And you'll either love it or loathe it - no inbetween with this puppy. Am glad you loved it too :)

I told you so. And how about that architecture?! Inside and outside?! It looks like Walt Disney vomited on the blueprints. Vegas is Sodom and Gomorrah. It's Rome before it fell. No gambling? You'd have found me at the crap tables day and night.

Even better when it's on business!
