Glad to be back in Sydney after a few days in Vegas.
I think this picture from the Domestic terminal @ McCarran airport sums it up, like normal life, but with a bit of a twist at every turn. Oddly, having such a large amount of gambling machines at the far end of a departure terminal doesn’t seem odd when you’ve spent the past few days in Vegas!
Evenings in Vegas are the most spectacular, it’s clearly a nocturnal town, everyone knows that, but it’s easy to forget just how much it comes alive after dark.
7/10th scale versions of the world’s architectural masterpieces are dotted around, bright lit for maximum impact and housing restaurants, casinos or retail stores; or escalators that take you to casinos or retail stores; none of the marvels on display were built out of love of course, or as upright stone demigods to keep the people in awe, each an every one serves a single purpose, aesthetic one-upmanship designed to draw in the weak and the vulnerable!
The hotels are pretty magnificent too…
In no hurry to go back, one trip every five reach is about right!
