(Travelogue - Day 0.5)

It's currently 5.30AM and I'm in Vegas.

I finally arrived in town shortly before 11PM local time (that's 7AM London time) and had a very welcome bath after almost 24 hours of being awake and 19 hours door-to-door travelling.

Something I forgot to mention yesterday is that I bumped into Matt and Alex from Mongoose at Heathrow. They were on a different (earlier) flight to me going via DC. They were appalled that mine was going to take so long (via Toronto). Well, I met them checking in at the same time as me (several hours later than expected for them) because there plane was delayed. That'll teach them to mock my lengthy travels!!! Hehe... (actually no mocking was involved but I was mildly amused to see them at the check-in desk :p).

Anyway, it DID snow in Vegas yesterday but only briefly and none of it settled. Having spoken to my taxi driver (who I'm sure was on the payroll of some strip clubs and brothels the way he was trying to convince me to 'try them out while I'm in town' and then passed me a card for an escort agency when I left the cab...) it apparently snows in Vegas every year but only once or twice and never hard. So, it's not that unusual afterall. Still shocked me though as all of the other years I've been here (at the same time of year) I've always experienced really nice, warm, weather!

Anyway, despite it being 5.30AM that is no indication of my 'rock and roll' lifestyle. I went to bed at about 12.30 and have just woken up a bit famished. Will don my adventuring gear and go in search for food in a bit. I hear The Riveria is supposed to have a good Buffet somewhere.....

Til laters! This is your roving reporter signing out!

In my senior year of college I did some research papers on prostitution and did a lot of reading on the subject, and yes, the taxi drivers do have agreements with the brothels. Apparently (no, really, I have never been in a brothel!), they have a special doorbell ring so the hookers know it isn't a customer coming in and don't bother lining up.

My Uncle lived out there for years and was a cabbie - hmmm, I really should ask him about that!!! :)
