Las Vegas strip collage
I rode up to North Vegas last week with my husband. I was bored on the way home so I snapped a series of photos through the passenger's seat window of the strip, then assembled them in the janky way you see here.
Would you like a tour?
Starting from the far left you can see the Bellagio which has a large fountain that is choreographed to spray to such tunes as Viva Las Vegas. Next is the Aria and Vdara and many other shiny new silver buildings- these are part of City Center, a huge project that kept many a man busy working. Then there is a pretty orange parking garage and an odd edit (ignore that).
Now for some older guys! Right in the middle of the collage sits the Monte Carlo (with some of the best odds on the strip, though if you really want to walk with some money, you need to go off strip). The Monte Carlo caught on fire a few years ago, poor thing!
And last, you can barely make out the pointy top of the Empire state building of New York, New York, the red and blue pointed tops of the castle Excalibur, and the very pointy Luxor.
