Roadtrip, Las Vegas 2

28 09 2009

Walking around the Las Vegas strip is like a 10 minute tour around the planet.

I visited the doge’s palace before

We had a lovely dinner in that restaurant, to the upper left 😛

Another spectecular waterfall near my favorite casino/hotel of all: The Encore

We first went to the Wynn’s, Q complained: he thought it too girly

DSCN1710

He was sooooo right: This place was meant for women!

I really loved it, it is designed in a sort of modern Art Deco style, very bold, very imaginative, very amusing, and very detailed.

Entrance to one of the restaurants, the ceiling recess is decorated with cutlery and plates! 😀

The Wynn and the encore have their own theme, flowers for the Wynn, and butterflies for the Encore.

It has some great shops.
With lots of blingy stuff!

I loved the lamps everywhere, every detail in this casino was perfect.

I immediately had to think of Achelois when I saw these white peacocks with cristal tails!

The lobby

Even the gambling areas were beautiful, often they are a bit messy. In the Venice they were very disappointing, very cheap-looking and ugly.

Because I liked Vegas so much we stayed another day! We did some shopping, and we went to Paris where I wan $100,- playing blackjack. I brought dinner with my winnings. Paris actually looked even better as Venice. Because of more ceiling hight perhaps? I made photo’s but they seem to have disappeared.

Their buffet is the best ever, and you eat it on a Parisian courtyard which makes you feel you are on a set for a movie about the Grimm Fairy tales!

We later went ”down town” to the cheaper casinos. Playing blackjack in the Golden Nugget was even more fun, but perhaps that was because I got away with another $200,- there  😉
Sadly that was our last night 😦

They certainly don’t do things on a small scale in America do they?

I was wondering what a bonafide European would think about Venice and Paris! After visiting the real Venice the one in Vegas looks quite fake. Although, I must say, far cheaper!

One thing I LOVED about Vegas is the buffet. I think NYNY has the best seafood buffet there.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing these and reading your captions. Those crystal-tailed peacocks were cool! And I love the cutlery and plates in the ceiling. Great seeing YOU, too! You look lovely in your sleek black dress – love it!

Isn’t Vegas GREAT!!?? I’ve only been once and I didn’t get to see half of it in the 4 days I was there! I can’t wait to go back and show it to my husband!

I don’t know about saying EVERYthing here is big though. I bet you had to go through some pretty small towns on your way to Vegas, didn’t you?
