roadtrip pt. 2: vegas baby!

It's a shame our trip went as quickly as it did, because one of the things I enjoy most about going to Las Vegas is turning that bend, and coming down that hill to see Vegas appear like a solitary beacon of light in the desert. We still had plenty good views entering this impressive city though. We even managed to take the perfect exit off of the freeway completely on intuition (not mine, it's Sander who has the navigation system embedded in his DNA). We got our rooms at hotel Circus Circus right at the end (or the start?) of the Strip, and after a quick break headed to the hotel buffet for some disappointing but adequate dinner. No time to scout for something nicer when you have hungry kids! By the time we went back outside the sun had set, and the lights had been switched on. There was something to see everywhere you looked, and look we did. We walked and looked, and walked and looked some more, until our feet (and some of our backs..) started hurting. Then we stood and watched the Bellagio fountains go up, and took a cab back to the hotel. Vegas managed to impress the newbies, as well as its returning visitors last Saturday night.

Yes good, now do silly eyes... YES! Stay like that!". And can you believe I found the Zoltar machine? I was tempted to wish to be 16 again, but then I remember how much I hated being 16...
