we ventured out last night but didn't go very far as after going back in time 8 hours we were all starting to lose the ability to speak and my eyes were stinging like hell! (i guess thats what you get for staying awake for over 24 hours).
we ended up at the hard rock cafe for dinner (a little cheesey i know) but it was my first ever visit to a hard rock cafe and at least it was in vegas (and not london). the burger was amazing actually but i guess i shouldn't expect anything less for a burger in america.
we saw the lion enclosure last night in the MGM hotel. i was intrigued to see them but at the same time i don't like the idea of lions being enclosed in a hotel. and i still think its pretty odd. they are obviously extremely tame and used to human contact as there was a man inside the enclosure with them. he patted their heads like they were domestic cats which i thought was a little wrong to treat them like pets. they were 2 female lions and kev said he bets the man wouldn't be doing that if they were male!
(a statue of liberty made of jelly beans. can i eat it?!!)
so far vegas has been everything i expected it to be. crazy, ridiculous, over the top, big (like HUGE), but amazing and such a feast for the eyes. i got very excited opening the curtains this morning (or afternoon? who knows) and seeing las vegas outside and i cannot wait to get out again and get exploring. we have a whole day ahead of us!
