I also went through the new x-ray machines that show you naked. You stand on a spot, and raise your arms. Happy viewing, airport folk. I was the one with the Angelina Jolie figure. Yeah, right.
I stayed at three hotels. 1 Paris Hotel, LV. 2 Rio Suites, LV. 3 MGM Grand, LV.
I took photos of Paris and Rio, but forgot MGM Grand. However, they can be found on the web.
In the MGM Grand I was in one of their new rooms, which was smaller than the Rio and Paris, but very modern and I had a magnificent view of The Strip. I left my (electronic) blind up every night and went to sleep admiring the neon lighting of all the casinos along The Strip. Fascinating.
All the hotels asked if I wanted to upgrade for a better view. I declined but I still got lovely views.
The first three pictures are of my Paris rooms, the bottom three pictures are of the Rio Suites hotel (where every room is a suite). The Rio is a little bit of f The Strip but there is a free shuttle bus. I loved everything about the Rio, including the huge floor to ceiling windows, but hated having to take that darn shuttle bus.
I didn't like the fussy old tired Versarilles look of the Paris rooms.
The heat was very very (very) bad. There all-time heat high was 112f. When I was there, it hit 111f. Goodness knows what that is in celsius but it's probably way into the forties.
You will be hearing a lot about my trip in future blogs. Sorry about that.
