We call Avis, report our experience and exchange our Altime for an almost new Toyota Camry.
We spend the afternoon at the Fremont Street Experience gambling in the Four Queens Casino. That is until Fergus gets ID'd and we are thrown out... he's no id with him
Las Vegas really is a sight to behold, the legendary lights on the Strip and the drive-thru Wedding Chapels. We saw wedding chapels advertising great package deals; wedding ceremony, photos on CD, the tux, bouquet and limo for only $299 of course you could opt for the ceremony only at $99! Whats more, the Chapels are open 24 hours for your convenience! Other striking features in Vegas are the number of homeless people and beggars is definetly considerably higher in Vegas than any other city we have visited so far. And the number of police is substantially greater, they are on every form of transport, horses, bikes, by foot, cars, you name it. And they're busy too - on one 10 minute walk down the Strip they had no fewer than 4 cars pulled over in different locations!!
We spend the evening at the Fremont Street Experience. As we were walking along the street, suddenly all the lights went out. Everyone waited in the dark and then the exhibition began. The interior of the roof came to life in order to celebrate Las Vegas gambling. Its a truly facinating spectacle with the whole roof lit up like a giant giant TV screen. Pictures, movies, music, the works! Stunning.
