After Tom lost money in the casino last night we had a bit of a sleep in, we
were supposed to be meeting with our new friends from Dubbo (who we met in LA
and who came to Vegas the same day as us) but the Luxor is such a massive hotel
we couldn’t find them. So we went for a walk down the strip. It was hot
outside, but bearable, and we stopped in all the shops and casinos along the
way to cool down anyway. We walked all the way up to Treasure Island hotel and
casino (it was a long way away) and then back down the other side of the strip
We put some money in the pokies along the way and we avoided the people trying
to sell grand canyon tours and the people giving out free tickets to night
clubs and bars and call girl cards. We walked through the Bellagio which was
really cool inside, very pretty and a nice place to stay if we weren’t on a 3
month trip with limited money.
Once we got back to the hotel we got some awesome huge drinks in tall cups and
Tom went and gambled some more money, and managed to keep it all. While he was
gone the boys from Dubbo called our room and organised to meet up with us at
the sports screen down in the casino. So once tom got back we went downstairs
and watched some basketball while sitting at the pokies playing $1 at a time
(that way we got free drinks because we were gambling! Sneaky). Then later we
went to Mandalay Bay and the boys all gambled, mainly roulette and blackjack.
Tom won $200 blackjack and only spent $100 and then i won him lots on roulette
while he was in the bathroom, i got him up another $150 at one point without
even realising how to play
haha. So that was a fun day and night.
