Can you believe I went to Las Vegas?

Srsly.  I've never actually articulated my Top 10 Places To Go... but if I did, I don't think Las Vegas was in there.  Italy, Ireland, Greece, St. John, Newfoundland, Labrador, Arizona, St. Louis, Charleston, Disneyland... they'd be in there.

Now?  Well, I could go back!

I maybe should have been a pilot... this is my second-least favorite seat on the plane... even so, the view from up there is one of my favorite things in the world.

It was 59F, cloudy, and windy when we landed.  This was the (fisheye) view from our room.  That shut me up right quick.  The Bellagio (and fountains), Caesar's Palace, Mirage, and Paris -- with Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe (and Barry Manilow) -- all right there.  I never tired of the view.

Monday morning dawned "quiet" and clear -- and warmer!

Barry Manilow was next door at Paris!

But not right away warmer, so we spent some morning time viewing the auto collection at the Imperial Palace.  I could easily fill my fantasy 20-car garage from this collection.

This one's for Mom & Joe -- who are driving through Italy as we speak!

Donny and Marie were at the Flamingo -- next to Barry Manilow at Paris and across from Cher at Caesar's Palace.

Margaritas in ridiculous light-up souvenir Planet Hollywood glasses (we fell for it!) at lunch!

Our big event on Monday was seeing the Cirque du Soleil show "LOVE" at the Mirage.  Loved it!

I love seeing these pictures - it brings me right back! Glad you had fun and can't wait to hear more about it.

You made my morning with all of the great photo's. I had sooooo much fun !!! (at times I did question why I wanted to go to Vegas )

I'd fall for the lit up margarita glass, too! It looks like you had a fabulouoso time.

Love your photos (as always). Looks like you had a great time.

The only thing I can think of that might improve a margarita. . . is a light-up souvenir glass FOR the margarita! I'd totally fall for it! Great photos -- sounds like you had a great trip! :-)

Give us plenty of warning before you go back. It's less than a 7 hour drive for me and Margene. Party!
