8th Feb – Las Vegas

Seem to have switched clocks, up at 7:00am and out by 9.00am. Went to Belz Factory Outlet Mall and spent a long time there getting bargains in clothing & Lynne got a good pair of Reeboks. The food courts weren’t much good for breakfast – Lynne had a hot dog on a jacket potato! Returned to Bally’s and used the Valet Parking (which is free + a $2 tip) which is so easy compared to the 5 mile hike through the Paris to the self-parking! Also the idea was to set us up for Bellhop assistance with the bags in the morning.

Packed the acquisitions and went down to the bar for a couple of drinks before going out to find dinner. Took a stroll south past the Paris. Its very impressive, The Louvre styled building with a 2/3rds sized Eiffel Tower inserted into it. (You even see the hidden legs inside when you go in!) Past the almost complete new Aladdin and on down the strip. Approximately where Hamburger Hamlins had been is the Harley Davidson Cafe. When we ordered a beer while looking at the menu we were offered a chrome mug @ $5 each. When they came they were glass with a sunburst chroming such that the rim is fully chromed but the base is fully clear. Made the mistake of having a starter and unable to finish my burger and fries. When the mugs were brought back with the check they were boxed up nicely. Tottered back to Bally’s.

Managed a drink at the bar & early to bed again, not so much knackered as stuffed, but to get going early to Bryce Canyon.
