in the pink desert9/10/2012
Donald and I took one last road trip before my Fall semester began, to experience the fruits of summer while they remained! Living in California means that at some point you have visited Las Vegas, and for me it has been over a dozen times. I consider it to be a malleable location, one that suits whoever visits. As a kid I busied myself with roller coasters and jumbo-sized desserts; as a teenager I crammed myself into cheap motels with family; and as an adult I've found the most relaxing corners of the city and the most delicious food.
It was raining while we were there, so there was a pink hue across the sky which I loved. I usually stay at the Venetian but we tried a new hotel with an immaculate view. I never get tired of seeing those lovely fountains or visiting the Bellagio botanical gardens.
We spent three full days there, most of which was either captured on my iphone or not at all. I wanted to enjoy my last moments of relaxation without bringing the camera to our personal outings. By outings- I mean playing roulette until I won, and playing glow-in-the-dark miniature golf. Classy times! We drove back home through the night and were thankful for our temporary solace.
