it was just too hot

so i have been back from Vegas a few days now and I'm still cream crackered...if you know what i mean, and cant quite get back into the swing of things, and i generally just feel a bit tired, but we did have a good time. but it was soooooo bloody hot that it drained my energy, and made me want to do as little as possible, and meant that i chickened out of doing some of the things i previously said i wanted to do... the neon bone yard was given a miss as i was convinced i would faint.... as its all outdoors... and an adventure to find a Michael's craft store was traded in for an afternoon nap in the luxurious air conditioned hotel room... ill do a blog about the Caesars palace hotel room later because it was just very special...we visited many more hotels this time and whilst they do kind of merge into one after a while, the carpets still amazed me, the Wynn hotel was just incredible and very beautiful, whilst the Stratosphere hotel was just horrible and really grotty, the views from the top were good though.we ventured downtown to what we called CSI land, do you watch CSI Las Vegas ?...well we felt this area is where most people die in that programme because it just had an air of danger and felt a bit wrong... the Freemont street experience was very disappointing, but the big light show was fun...and some of the gift shops were highly amusing and as usual Vegas left me wanting more, but not the heat, i love how fake it all is and how around every corner something makes me smile, and i know we will go back many times.. we have already booked 1 night in December as part of another Californian adventure we are having... and now maybe ill get some more crafting done... but maybe ill sleep first... lots more pics here, if you want to see a sweaty me...
