I'm having a great time on honeymoon! We're half way through our time at Las Vegas and I can honestly say that I've never been anywhere like this before. I'm loving the tackiness of it and how everyone is happy or at least seeming to be having a great time. It's more of a theme park than a city, but a very luxurious one
We're staying at the Venetian hotel, which as you might be able to guess from the name, contains a replica of Venice. Earlier today we rode on a fake gondola whilst being seranaded by an opera singer, which was quite the experience! We've also enjoyed the Luxor hotel (Egyptian theme, the photo shows me by a statue outside of it) and the shark exhibit at Mandaly place.
We have gambled a little bit but I've not been very lucky - my biggest winning was 72 cents. Tom on the other hand turned 1 cent into 10 dollars on his first try! He should have gambled a lot more, that's a great winning as a percentage.
Tomorrow morning we're getting up very early for our Grand Canyon tour so it won't be too hot when we're there. The heat is definitely oppressive here, it's like a giant heat blanket outside. I always imagined America would be similar to England but so far it's been a bit of a culture shock. But then Vegas is hardly typical America so I'll reserve judgement until I see a bit more.
Hope everyone is OK, and reading some great books :)
