My Vegas Trip - Chapter 1: The Sights

Las Vegas is one of those cities that never ceases to amaze me no matter how many times I visit there. I hadn't been back for three or four years but as the plane was circling the city I fell in love again.

Vegas reminds me a lot about those model cars I used to build when I was young. Everything is in detail but the actual size is much bigger. The inside joke going among my friends was "Hey we can see the hotel from here, it's not that far". You don't realize how far hotels are until you start walking and realize you've barely gotten closer.

How do I describe visually what Vegas is all about? From the lion at the MGM to the pyramid at Luxor to the grand majestic site known as the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, there is just so much to take in. For those of you who have never had the opportunity to visit, well, everybody has to go to Vegas once in their life.
