The Riviera ... splendid colours!!

Wow ... I'm going to visit Las Vegas Nevada ... My husband's been there on Business trips with Kimpex and this year (Nov. 2007) I think I will join him, NO I did join him!!! 

He drove 5hrs from Sudbury, Ontario (home) to the Toronto Pearson Airport, he had some help driving, but just knowing how sleepy the others were, Dan had to drive most of the way ,,, OK practically all the way.  Tired, hungry, and exhausted we all went through customs and headed for a cafe to have some breakfast ... we had to leave at 4am to catch our early flight in Toronto ... I didn't realize ... once in LV we continue to stay up until 3am ... ummm ... looking back I wonder how I kept my eyes  open!!!

Wow again ... it's mid-November 2007 and the winter jacket I have on is causing me to sweat LOL .

Look what I have to face each time I enter my hotel lol
.. I can't believe the change in weather and it's not ever the summer ... I'm so glad I brought some summer clothing ...

Dan's (husband's) co-workers, a salerep, and I all piled into a van (cab) and all I could do is watch as we drove away from the airport ... I was filled with excitement, never having come here before, and we were dropped off at The Riviera Hotel ... it was so big ... lights and colours ... many, many people gambling ... beer ... and statues of womens in Bikinis along the entrance ... what a view LOL ...

Life here seems so fun, the lifestyle so different, and advertisements aren't Bulletin Boards selling cleaning products etc. like TIDE, VIM, or MR. CLEAN ... don't get me wrong there is many convenient, grocery, and departments stores for these products needed after the FUN that goes on here LOL :)

Well, tomorrow is another day ... I'm excited to walk the famous Las Vegas strip drinking a Cooler with my husband taking photos along the way ... a priviledge not found in Ontario or Canada for that matter ... well off to bed I go

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS STAYS IN VEGAS :)

The girls on the entrance advertise the show Crazy Girls and their logo was 'No ifs, ands or...' = butts! That's why they were so proudly for show!

There is no place like Las Vegas. If you limit yourself to a maximum amount you will be save.
