Jan 20, 2013
Woke late and wandered down for breakfast around 10, took the opportunity to catch up on correspondence then off for the day. first stop New York New York,then Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, then over to MGM, where we took part in a television screening for a new show, called 'friend me', wasn't that impressed with it, parts of it were funny, but wouldn't watch it unless Iwas really really bored!!!! a quick bite to eat after turned into a long stay with messages coming through from Stephen and Bree , shopping list from Bree. then back to M&M world to get part of Bree's list, you weren't that specific Bree, so hope you like what I picked for you. then into coke store where a bit of tasting of 16 different flavours from around the world, and more shopping of course. then up to Bellagio to view fountain, then tram back to our hotel.loving these free trams that go between different casinos, you never have to walk for long in between them, though just walking through casinos is probably a mile or so each one. back to hotel for a break before dinner, just need to sit for awhile, and probably a nanna nap for David. went back to Bellagio to view fountain after dark, then the order of the day was to find gloves, as our hands were numb from the cold, there is a hard freeze warning tonight. apparently the next few days are going to be the coldest in January for 10 years, temperatures in the mid 20's!!! (farenheit) an easy dinner then back to try and fit everything into 2 suitcases for bus trip to L.A tomorrow. Vegas has definitely been an eyeopener, loved going to Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon, but worst part is all the homeless on the streets begging and hawkers everywhere you go, but we can cross Vegas off our list now, have no inclination to revisit, looking forward to L.A.
