Just got back from Las Vegas after celebrating Tu’s birthday weekend there. The trip was quite fun, we stayed at Mandarin Oriental (which I would recommend) and did most of the “Vegasy” things that one would expect. We did a little gambling – didn’t lose our money which was good. We did some eating – good noodles, sushi and dim sum. We did some watching of the Chargers – they did lose. And visited some of the beautiful hotels and attractions – like the one pictured below. Vegas was filled with people drinking on the streets. In fact it seemed like everyone had these big long cups filled with some kind of drink in them. I am not sure how people can drink so early in the morning and keep drinking all day – that must get kind of tiring. I took the picture below by setting the camera on the ledge outside of the Bellagio during the light show. The camera was set at f22 with a 10 second exposure and ISO about 320.
