Sunday snapshot – What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas

A journalist from the UK who visited Singapore during the YOG mentioned that she found Vegas very tacky, especially the casinos. I found it very unreal – but there was something about the place that attracted me. Was it the casinos, the night life, the energy, the lights – I couldnt tell !Probably it was  the fact they converted an entire dry desert into a larger than life  attraction , or may be it was outright touristy with no pretensions whatsoever !The casinos for instance – it seemed like a  potpourri of people who threw cautions to the winds and gambled their way was lady luck they were courting – nothing else mattered . I too felt that life is nothing but a gamble…We won, we lost..we lived it up – but as they say, What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

    Hey! I just discovered your blog and I like it! I haven’t done much traveling, but I love reading about the adventures of others. Keep it up!

    I’ve never been to Vegas but I intend to visit some day!

    I was once in Vegas – 33 years ago – from what I’ve heard, it changed quite a bit in all these years:) But I have no wish for a re-visit.

    Visiting a place and living in it are two different things!! I’ve visited lots of places I wouldn’t DREAM of living in, but it’s all about having the experiences!

    Happy travels!!
