honeymoon in vegas

Following our wedding at a place "where the stars are the streetlights", Edgar and I left for a place where all stars come in the form of streetlights. (Please contain your laughter...we went to Las Vegas.) Despite it being a sinful version of Disney World and a sweltering 110 degrees everyday, we had a fantastic time. We avoided losing too much money, didn't buy a time-share, ate well, drank well, saw some fantastic performances and developed some rather impressive tans.


Oh, and of course, we visited Venice, Paris, Cairo, Monte Carlo, NYC and many, many other cities without ever leaving the Strip :) What a riot.

Fortunately Miguel, we did not! No visits to crime scenes this trip :)

Pete- Yosemite sounds like a great place to honeymoon. Perhaps this will be where I'll go for my next one :)

Hehehe, I just had to come back to read more about your honeymoon travels. I think it's wonderful that you went to LV! Can't get to travel like that anywhere else but LV! I wanna get married there like Miguel! :)

I'm jealous. To me, this isde of the water, Vegas sounds like the most glamourous place ever. And, of course, the tackiest. A winning combination, I think. Did you bring back any hideous souveniers? A sphinx keyring, perhaps?

suzanne said...

No sphinx this time...but last time I was there I did pick up a pyramid charm for my charm bracelet :)
