Where I stayed
The bus ride was about 5 hours long and on the way we saw a car on fire, the fire trucks had only just got there and as we drove past you could feel the heat inside the bus. HOT. it was very much on fire. We also drove past all the joshua trees, amazingly awesome but funny looking trees, almost like cacti crossed with a palm tree. and so many mountains, it was awesome to look at the landscape changing out the window, and i think i even managed to stay awake for the whole ride!
We got to vegas at about 6:30pm and got dropped off at excalibur, and it was just a short walk across the road to the LUXOR where we were staying where we checked into our hotel room in the pyramid :) we even had a slanty pyramid wall! soo cool. and so cheap! $40 a night for 4 nights, who could go wrong. oh, plus taxes...makes it more like $60 a night but eh, still cheap for the strip in vegas.
So the Luxor was joined to 2 other hotels, Mandalay Bay and Excalibur, so you can just walk through the hotels and go to different casinos and different shopping without having to go outside in the heat, and we could seriously jsut have spent our 4 days exploring the shops and casinos of the hotels, there were so many.
We had some dinner at an irish pub where i had a piece of fish the size of a dinner plate, soo big, although we were nowhere near the ocean so it wasnt as amazing as fish from the coast, but still quite good. And tom had a pretty huge piece of steak which he rather enjoyed. Then Tom went and gambled while i went to bed and proceeded to lose all the money he spent. whoops.
