After our overnight escapade in Arizona, Pit Stop # 3, it was finally time to drive 5 more hours to Las Vegas where we are staying for the next 4 days. Yes, indeed, 4 days in Las Vegas! Woopee!!!

It was my 2nd time in Vegas but almost nothing looked familiar. Well, it has been 4 years since, it should be expected. There were so many new hotel resorts now, and a lot more under construction. I didn't think it had that much space. The once very walkable "Strip" is not so walkable now. It has expanded everywhere. Though the day pass bus ticket was just 5 dollars, the group opted for the "walking for fitness" type of touring. A typical day would be: buffet brunch, then walk in and out of the hotels for the next 5 hours, walk back to our hotel and take a nap. After a quick nap would be another few more hours of walking/touring. Add to that the chilly wind of the desert.

We also watched Cirque Du Solei, the best stage production you will ever see in your life! The stage was literally moving and spinning everywhere! People flying here and there. Too bad I can't show you how it looked like, no photography allowed inside the theater. There are some videos in youtube though: www.youtube.com/watch. I would also like to commend their security staff for finding my lost scarf in about two minutes. Great job!

All that walking did not lose us some pounds because of all the eating we did, instead gave me some blisters but that doesn't really matter when you've got yourself the opportunity to experience these magnificent architecture. Below is the photo taken from our hotel room window. Pretty neat huh? ;) We got to watch the Belagio fountain show every time.
