Well, technically, I guess they can.
I wonder what they think of it?
I just returned from a trip there for a trade show my husband had to attend. I went along to visit some cool hiking spots and brought a bunch of cameras along.
Vegas is weird. I think one of the things I like about it is how it’s so upfront about its vice. Gambling? Sex? Alcohol? They have it all, and in spades. Seedy underbelly? No way! We wear our seediness proudly on our face.
We couldn’t help but laugh at the giant billboards for Adult Mega Superstores. (Hey, who doesn’t like to buy in bulk!)
Mostly I think of it as a wasteland. Or maybe I should say, a land of waste. Just think of how much energy could be saved by simply turning off the lights in Vegas. We could save the environment! (My husband was quick to point out that the world’s economy would also fail, but still.)
I fully understand the appeal of gambling. I think I could easily be one of those welfare moms who spend their food stamps on lotto tickets. (I can say this because I’m related to one of those welfare moms.) Until I look at it this way: basically, you’re sitting in a chair just handing someone your money. For nothing.
The Valley of Fire:
And lots of other stuff I didn’t have time to explore.
I kind of like how in Vegas, all the good stuff is beneath the surface.
