Las Vegas. We had a great time but we ate too much, slept too little and walked our little feetsies off. We stayed at the beautiful Caesar's palace.
My favorite place to eat was Payard's. Sweet Farmer looked a tad out of place in this beautiful French pastry shop- (I know he only ate there for me) but he did agree there was quite a difference in a flaky, delectable cheese danish made fresh by French chefs than the ones we buy at Sam's!
My next favorite thing was the Bellagio gardens and conservatory and art gallery. I got to see original Warhol's and Lichtenstein's.
We did our part for the stimulus package! Most of Las Vegas is fake and too ritzy and manufactured for my taste- I can't help but compare it to the simple vistas of Africa - but there is beautiful art and fascinating images and lots of life's questions to contemplate. Like why do you need 3 toilets (one a bidet) in a room with one king size bed? And who was the first person to try marble floors? And why do so many people come to Vegas to put money in machines and on tables that rarely offer them anything back? If you've been to Vegas you probably have a few questions of your own .....
