Las Vegas - what an artificial oasis in the desert!
A very unique place on this earth...
24/7/365 = 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year
THE SHOW MUST GO ON !!!
You can get your nails done at 3:30am in the morning, if you want to ... You can drink booze at 8:30am in the morning if you want to ...
In each and every hotel on the strip - the main avenue in Las Vegas - you walk through a casino on the ground floor: no windows and always the same amount of light, fresh oxygen pumped in so that people never consciously notice what time of the day it is and stay awake for loooong hours.
All the hotels along the strip are somehow linked to each other so you'd never need to go out but walk from one fantasy land to another. They are all themed so you might start in the tropical jungles of Mandalay Bay Hotel, walk over to old Egypt into the Luxur Hotelpyramid and further through Excalibur Castle Hotel and then say hello to the Statue of Liberty in New York New York Hotel, walking over the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan.
It amazes me how every detail is taken care of. It truly feels like you are there: Venetian Hotel, Paris Hotel and oh wow Caesars Palace!
Other highlights I experienced during this one-week stay in Vegas was observing the light and sound show at Bellagio Hotel's beautiful fountain, doing a Bigshot ThrillRide at the Stratosphere Hotel and going to the BlueManGroup Show in the MonteCarlo Hotel, not to forget our Gambling Night and meeting a billionaire who sent us back to our hotel in his private limousine ;)
