4th Oct - Today was a very early morning as I began my 24 day Contiki Tour.  After leaving Anaheim we stopped at Barstow, and drove through the town of Primm and Baker (the home of the world's largest thermometer!) before driving on to Las Vegas.  On the way we drove through the Mojave Desert, the only place in the world where Joshua trees grow.
When we arrived in Vegas we dropped our bags and went straight down to the Strip, where we went to see the following places:
*M&M's World
*New York, New York Casino
*MGM Grand Casino - where we saw the lions that live in an enclosure inside
Since Vegas is one of the few places in America that allows people to drink alcohol in the streets, we bought frozen daquiris that came in these huge yard glasses and drank them whilst exploring the strip.  After dinner we went on a Vegas Strip Tour where from the bus we saw all the hotels and casinos that line the Strip and we also saw the Welcome to Vegas sign and the Fremont Street Experience before ending up at Studio 54, a club inside the MGM Grand.

5th Oct - Today was a huuuuge walking day as we saw all the following things:
*Vegas Strip Monorail
*Madame Tussauds
*Stratosphere Casino
*Sahara Casino
*Riviera Casino
*The Palazzo Casino
*The Venetian Casino
*Harrahs Casino
*Flamingo Casino
*Caesar's Palace - where we saw an Atlantis show, shopped at the Playboy Shop and saw the Pussycat Dolls Lounge
*Bally's Casino
*Paris Casino
*Planet Hollywood Casino
*MGM Grand
*New York, New York Casino

After dinner we then went to see a variety show called "V" at Planet Hollywood.  It was absolutely crap. We also watched as two people on our Contiki Tour, Georgina and Nathan got "married" by Elvis at a Vegas Wedding Chapel.
