On our way to Las Vegas, we drove endless desert highways, crossed the Hoover dam, and got to feel what about 48 degrees Celsius feel like. As we arrived, we checked in at The Mirage on The Strip. First impression was...well, Vegas is Vegas, and you have to take it as it is. Hords of people everywhere, grannies sitting by the thousands of slot machines, neon signs each trying to be bigger and and brighter than the other and everything is designed to please your every need - however unnecessary.
Despite the citys shallowness, we had a blast, and Las Vegas just has to be experienced, however tacky it is. And as for the rest, as the saying goes: what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
