Vegas is a place that is surreal in every way – the buildings, the lights – nothing seems to make a tremendous amount of sense. The more I stare, the more taken back I am. Nothing is small, or humble – but you all know that. I guess what I am trying to say is, even seeing it in person, it’s so hard to believe.

Tonight we went to the RioA�to see Penn & Teller live, at their very ownA�theater, and it was more than I could ever imagine. Seeing people you admire greatly in person is an amazing experience, but it went above and beyond my greatest expectations. The show started with an open invitation to go up on stage and have a look at a wooden trunk that was on display and obviously to be used in a bit (It was solid, there was no trapdoor there) and to sign a sealed envelope, again for a later trick. While lined up on the stage, I realised I recognised the Double Bass player in the jazz duo who were performing pre show – it was Penn. And I was only a few meters away from him!

Lamisil treatment for yeast infection

The Aria hotel. Everyone has told us it is the newest hotel in Vegas, brand spanking new. I never thought I’d experience a ‘New Hotel Smell’, but if such a thing exists I think I can say I have smelled it. Click the main image above to see the whole thing – that image makes it look SMALL. The place is insane – you open and close the the curtains with a button control, it has a media station to plug USB phone chargers into it – and a ‘Sleep’ switch that basically shuts down the room for sleeping, lights off, tv off and curtains closed.

It’s. Bananas.

Purchase levothroid medication

Officially 1 week today, and it Vegas time baby!

Today was an early start (3:30am) to catch our flights to Las Vegas, and after 2 full on days at Comic Con and the hotel/motel in San Diego, the Aria hotel in the City Circle of Las Vegas Strip isA�AMAZING! Its a huge hotel, one of theA�newestA�built on the strip. Situated between the Bellegio and the New York New York hotels, we are in the heart of the strip. Our room is facing west, and we have just been able to see the sun set from the cool aircon of our room (currently 32deg c 7:40pm)

We had an wonderful shuttle bus driver today, who pointed out places, gave us some hints and tips about getting around, suggestIONS on what to do and see. We drove past a couple of hotels on the way- but tomorrow we will explore with our camera tomorrow and post about the Strip tomorrow night.

Today was a planned transit day- getting from one place to the other and settling in. We have not looked around much, but the joy of having 5 nights in this oasis will give us plenty of time. As we only had a small McD breakfast early this morning, we decided to hit our first Vegas Buffet- OMG… for all you Launceston people reading, it was like 4x the size of the Links @ the Cas- but this one included most drinks and had no time frame set- you can sit there as long as you like, and EAT!
