Back and still single! :D on both parts!

I had a lot of fun. We were basically on the Strip (or at least connected to it) so there was plenty of things to do within walking distance. We went entirely because my mother had a business conference and she was allowed to take a guest and my dad couldn't go. The first day I spent mostly at the hotel and the Bellagio which was connected to where we were staying. I was expecting the garden they have to be bigger than it was but it was still very pretty. I'm not much of a picture taker when I go out adventuring but I got some pictures of the garden mostly because of two or three friends who would LOVE it. Then mom got back from conference and we went out and explored a hella expensive shopping center called Crystal's and most of the strip that was on the other side of the street. There was a shopping center at Planet Hollywood that was so big we had to turn around and leave parts unexplored cause it just never seemed to end.

Second day: I went more south to look at the area by MGM and New York New York. Did not look at the NY part cause I wasn't sure there was anything there worth seeing and I wasn't sure if I wanted to visit that without my mother. That was about a mile from where we were staying and two and a half hours of touring. Mom got done with conference stuff and we went back and we went to the NY part, crossed over and visited (re-visited for me) the M&Ms world and the Coca-Cola shop. Mom, for some reason, really likes Coca-Cola products. Like.. not the drink (though she will have it occasionally) but the merchandise they come out with - the tables and salt shakers and such. So I think she had fun even if she ended up not getting anything cause it was too freaking expensive. $30 for a shirt? No thank you. We also spent a lot of time in souvenir shops because my mom wanted to get things for her brothers and the girls at work and such. We went to Paris which was right across from Bellagio. We were gonna go up into their Eifel Tower but it was expensive so no. Everything was expensive there, though. So expensive. And all this took about three hours. Did you know that your tailbone can hurt if you've walked for too long? I found that out.

Third and final day: She went in for conference stuff until noon. We took a cab -my very first cab ride EVER- and went to the Freemont area which used to be what the strip is now. Went into the Golden Nugget where I learned a lot of movies have been filmed there. Played $5 and managed to win $10. We went to the Mob Museum which was really interesting. They had so much stuff, we got over-saturated and just.. stopped really looking at things after a while. There were guns and bullet fragments that used to be in actual people and autopsy reports and so many movies.

That was about it, though. Had to get up at seven to catch a plane and spent all of yesterday traveling. It was fun. I've learned I like big cities.
