Maybe I was a bit harsh in my earlier post about Vegas. In addition to the phenomenal people-watching, I must admit there are some pretty great restaurants here, and lots of amazing sushi. Sushi Samba (and its Chu-Cucumber Saketini) hasn't disappointed for two nights in a row now.
And, I was fairly impressed tonight when I finally drew the shades - by remote control, of course - in my room and took in the view. This picture doesn't quite do justice, but the mountainous landscape surrounding this cultural abyss is quite stunning, and surprisingly serene.
Proof positive that every place has its own uniqueness, its own value. Sometimes, we just need to draw back the shades to see it.
