As to Vegas… I take pleasure in mountaineering in character additional than town excursions and I really do not like gambling, nor the glitz of this style of locations. But I went to Vegas when for expert explanations and I have fantastic recollections of it. The town feels extremely bogus through the working day, but at evening it is a unique area. It has great and lousy element, but extremely unique. Function organisation is also totally thoughts-blowing, in particular for huge functions. HAL
