12-Oct-1999 Tuesday

This was probably our only three state day on our USA trip, we only drove about 120 miles from St. George (Utah) to Las Vegas (Nevada) but we also crossed Nevada for a few miles.

We decided to stay in a nice hotel with his own pool area (direct view from our room). Of course we had to try out the pool, because it is still hot weather in Nevada.

Later in the afternoon we went gambling to win a few millions of dollars to finance the rest of our vacation. We started at the Luxor and went up north to the Excalibur, New York New York, MGM Grand, Ballys, Cesars Palace, Mirage (where the volcano was erupting), Treasure Island and all the way up to Stratosphere Tower with his incredible view over Las Vegas. We also had to ride the roller coaster on top of it.

After that we wanted to got to the Fremont Street Experience, so we walked all the way up to Downtown Las Vegas (which is pretty far). On the way back we spent the last three bucks for the bus to ride down to our hotel. We don't know yet how we gonna pay for the hotel when we have to check out.
