Las Vegas

About a year ago, Jeff and Nathan were stranded in Dallas for 3 days due to American Airlines grounding all flights for maintenance inspections (see first blog posts). After some back and forth communication with American Airlines, we were reimbursed for some of the costs and inconvenience of that event. Part of that reimbursement paid for 2 tickets for Jeff and I to take a fun vacation to Las Vegas in January. Neither of us had ever been there so we decided to go just for fun. There is so much to see in Las Vegas just by walking around on the strip. Neither of us are all that into gambling, but we did get to see a great Cirque du Soleil show and tour the Hoover Dam.
The lights and the activity in Las Vegas is more than a picture can do justice.
This is the hotel and casino (New York New York) across the strip from where we were staying.
The Hoover Dam tour took us across the dam and then we did an underground tour of the working electrical plant. It was amazing.
