Bling City

2018-06-08

Yesterday was all about getting the hire car sorted and driving from LA to Vegas (well, Mike driving and me passengering. Don’t knock it, it’s hard work sitting there 😂) Mike made a great job of the first journey as it’s nerve-wracking to say the least dealing with the traffic in LA.  I made a superb passenger though 😇. Las Vegas is everything they say it is, and probably more; it’s hyperbling on speed. I came here prepared to be a bit snooty  over it but our hotel, The Bellagio, is gorgeous, and I’ve enjoyed myself so much so far it’s made me think that I’m more than a bit shallow myself, but what the heck! The one think Las Vegas has over LA is that it’s honest about wanting your money, and it doesn’t try to sell you a dream that doesn’t exist. In both cities everyone is trying to hustle money from you, but Vegas is upfront about it. Also everyone seems to be having a good time, which is also nice to see. We’re goung to have a go at the tables tonight so I’ll report on that next blog...... if we’ve got any money left, haha!
