Highlights: Losing money quickly Vegas style 🙂
An early wake to catch the 7.20 am bus to Las Vegas. We met up with Mark and Angela for the bus trip. Arriving in Las Vegas we rang around looking for the cheapest Casino – Hotel which turned out to be the Tropicana up the top end of the strip.
While Jon was busy taking A shower I quickly went down to the gambling tables and just as quickly lost money. This was the start of a theme, losing money no matter what I played.
For dinner we searched for a good buffet, settling for Caesar’s Palace which while expense was very good. We walked down the strip to the Vegas Hilton visiting and gambling at most of the casinos along the way. Jon kept winning I kept losing 😦
By the time we got to the Hilton it was past 11 pm and the Star Trek Experience was shut so it had to wait for tomorrow. The round walking trip was over 10 kms, made easier with a lighter wallet I guess – LOL.
