THIS IS VEGAS


It's an incredible place, Vegas. We actually had a massive dose of culture shock when we first got there. After seeing kids of as young as four and five on trains in Mexico helping their parents make a living, it was kind of shocking to get to Vegas and see this complete overabundance of everything. Alcohol in glasses so long people had to wear a strap around their back to carry them; overweight kids downing super-sized shakes; girls with breasts bigger than their heads; people mindlessly pressing buttons for hours on end at a slot machine; people pushing drugs and handing out "girls for hire" cards on every corner... Get the picture?
But you soon get used to it. And you find that there's a lot to enjoy about Vegas without having to sacrifice your soul!
We walked a tonne, trying to see as many casinos and stores as we could. We didn't manage it. We saw Celine Dion perform (when in Vegas, eh?), took a day trip to the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam, ate some seriously good food, watched some of the outdoor water shows, had about five minutes of pool time, gambled a grand total of seven dollars and then vowed we'd be back again one day to win our fortune and laze properly by those epic swimming pools.

    1. It's a whole lot of fun! And quite cheap (even cheaper if you have a win at the casino!!!)
