Here’s my final post dedicated to Las Vegas, in its full glory! Of course, this includes many shots of the sin city’s main attractions and familiar sights, southwestern tacos, fusion foods, desert-inspired mixed drinks, casinos, and faux-european architecture. If you embrace the historic oddity of this city and all its proudly cheesy splendors, Las Vegas really is quite fabulous!
I avoided gambling my entire time in Las Vegas, until just minutes before hopping on my return flight. Thinking I had nothing to lose, I played my first game of slot machine at the airport. Who would have thought? I hit a 7-7-7 and won (albeit, only $2)!
It was a good thing I was on my way out, because that’s how Vegas gets you back – a dollar at a time.
China Poblano, José Andrés’ noodles and tacos restaurant.
P.S. The thing that I’m afraid to tell you is that I actually fell asleep by 9:30 PM almost every night in Vegas! Work and jetlag gets the best of us sometimes. But I’m grateful for the chances to combine travel and work.
