left Palm Springs, California early on Sunday morning,
Oct 28th for Las Vegas, Nevada. We plan to spend
2 days there at New York New York hotel and casino.
The pictures below were taken at night without the
use of a tripod, so they are not the best in terms
of clarity. However you will appreciate the many
lights and action in Las Vegas at night.
The picture on the left is taken from the bridge between the MGM Grand and the New York New York hotels looking north towards the Paris Hotel which can be seen in the distance. The picture on the right is the front of the New York New York hotel. The Montecarlo can also be seen in distance in the middle of the picture.
The Excalibur hotel is seen on the left below, while the Tropicana is shown on the right. The MGM Grand Lion can be seen in the foreground.
These two pictures show the New York New York hotel with the Statue of Liberty.

are on our way home from Palm Springs and Las Vegas.
Only 4500 KM's to go before we make it home. We left
a small deposit in Las Vegas roughly equal to the
cost of two rooms which we were comp'd for so I guess
it is not a total loss, however would have been nice
to win some money while we were here. Someone has
to pay for these beautiful hotels. We are leaving
Las Vegas tomorrow, Oct 30, for Flagstaff , Arizona
and then on to Santa Fe , New Mexico. I will be adding
more pics and some commentary once we visit Santa
