Vegas in pictures - 12th to 14th Jan

Wow, not a lot I can say about this place! It's pretty incredible and amazing that a place like this exists,... With all ppl are allowed to do here I did not see one fight in a casino or bar.

Amazing facts about Vegas (in my words):
• You are allowed to consume alcohol on the street
• you can buy alcohol in one place (casino-bar) and then carry and drink it in another
• ppl can smoke in most places here
• they have like 2 litre souvenir glasses that you can buy and refill cheaply
• frozen drinks are awesome here
• people spend a lot of money here gambling
• the protocol of dress for young girls seems to be something that just covers their you know what !! Luckily for the world I didn't follow those rules
• said girls above seem to go to the makeup shops within complexes to do their makeup and get ready for the night out - taking full advantages of the 'tester' makeup
• there are lots of shops within the casinos
•it is easy to spend $$ in Vegas
• helicopter rides are awesome
• the grand canyon from a helicopter was one of the most amazing things I've ever done!
• heaps of street performers are in Vegas

Hmmm that's all my new learnings ....

Now for the pictures ;)

I posted the same photo in the airport, it blows my mind that you can gamble while waiting for a flight. Loved the drink glasses and made all of the observations that you did. Did you get to go out on the rim at the Canyon, it's my one regret that i didn't do it and since i've been back, i've heard it's spectacular. Did you see any shows?
