It’s pretty much our last day here, we leave tomorrow morning for a direct flight back to Toronto and then a two hour drive home from there.
I think the week has been getting to us… Amy and I slept in until at 1pm! Our bodies were just fried from packing in so much sightseeing in one day, so much walking, starting early and finishing late; but hey, it’s all good, it’s not like I have to work throughout my time here, it’s all vacation!
Yesterday I was feeling a little under weather, but Amy and I still had a great time. We went to the “Tropicana Hotel and Casino” to meet up with our tour guide at the “Mob Attraction” for our “Mob Tour and Attraction”. It was only a small group of us, about 11 people or so. Basically, we hopped onto a small bus and we drove around the city where he explained to us how Vegas all started and then how the mob took it over to run just about every casino in Las Vegas. He drove us around the city and showed us exact locations where mobsters were assassinated and where some crime took place. He also drove us over to a house that was used in the movie “Casino”. Apparently almost everything that happened in that movie was actually true and did take place in real life.
The entire tour started around 5pm and ended around 9pm, since I wasn’t feeling so well, I figured that a nap should be enough to get me going for the rest of the night, but I just ended up passing out for the rest of the night and here I am now feeling better than ever!
Today, we’re going to check our the massive garden in the back of our hotel, where apparently exotic birds such as Flamingos and Black Swans rest; we’ve been in our hotel for nearly a week and haven’t even checked it out yet, but checked out almost every other hotel!
We’re also going to go eat at the “Bubba Gump” restaurant for Supper. It’s a shrimp/seafood restaurant based on the movie Forrest Gump; they play the movie on repeat the entire time that the restaurant is open. I’ve been to Bubba Gump in both San Diego and Hawaii and man is it ever delicious!
Today for sure, we’re going to go to the Stratosphere on sunset because my Sifu from Kung-Fu is insisting that it’s a sight that must be seen before we leave, so that’s what we’re going to do!
Here are a few snaps from yesterday:
