Checking out the sights #2

Another thing I wanted to see when I got out to Vegas was the water show at the Bellagio. Although the show plays for most of the day, it is especially great to see at night when the lights come on. I took some video to show Wifey and the kids when I got back home...

Con Te Partiro (Time to Say Goodbye). Artist: Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman

Hoe-Down. Artist: London Symphony Orchestra

Singin' in the Rain. Artist: Gene Kelly.

Right across the street from the Bellagio is the Paris Hotel and Casino. If you know Wifey you must know it is her greatest wish to someday travel to the real Paris and visit the Eiffel Tower. Too bad I got to Paris before her. :)

Some more random pics from the Strip. I didn't do too much walking around. One thing I learned was that there are two times you definitely don't want to come to Vegas.

First, when you are alone.
Second, when you are on a budget.
I came here when both of these applied to me. This can be a very lonely place without anyone to share it with.

Anyhow, back to the pics... Next door to the Bellagio is Caesers Palace.


This is the Bellagio, truly the nicest casino I've ever been in. True upper class. Just look at what they put on for Chinese New Year!

And yes, I couldn't believe it! A building-sized advertisement for Donny and Marie. This is all the proof that you should need that anything can happen in this place.

So I migrated over here from your wife's blog (I'm an avid follower) and I just had to comment about your Vegas trip! I've been jealous since reading you were going. I love the photos and videos. I actually got married at the Paris. Oh how I love Vegas. We haven't been in almost six years and I'm itching to go again...
