      Hi Allison, yes I love Las Vegas too. Weird thing is I do not gamble. So many shows, so little time, and just walking down the street is entertaining. First time I was there, I saw a gaggle of Elvii walking down the street in matching white and glitter jumpsuits.
      I have not been there in a while, but from the pictures many of the newer hotels are worth seeing.
      I saw Hoover Dam also, but did not take the tour. Should have as I am not sure if you can take pictures inside the dam anymore. Just the size of it was amazing and looking from one side to the other was mindboggling.
      Glad you were able to celebrate your birthday in such a wonderful place.

      Hi..Just got back from Las Vegas, my new favorite city. We saw Jubilee, an extravaganza featuring topless showgirls. I think I missed my calling back when I was a young adult. Should have moved to Vegas.
       But also we visited Hoover Dam. The guide there told a story about how there were 95 deaths in building the dam which was started in the 1920s and continued construction through the thirties. The first death occurred when one man fell and drowned in the Colorado river...then thirteen years to the day, the last death occurred when another man fell while working on the dam; he was the son of the first man. wow... but the power and the strength of that piece of engineering was a marvel. My dad was an engineer and I think he was with me that day in spirit. It was awesome. The construction in Vegas is awesome too. Outdoor escalators and overpasses connecting all the hotels. wow... the indoor malls. I celebrated my 52nd birthday by ziplining over Fremont street. Woo. Allison
      Oh I also apologize if I sent a blank email from my phone.
