VERY FIRST TIME IN VEGAS

2012. Spring is coming I thought and it's time to celebrate my 25th birthday. I needed something huge as my anniversary, something that you'll remember all your life.

I've never been before on west coast of the US, only knew about it from my brother's stories and pictures. And the most stunning place I saw on his photos was Grand Canyon, so this is it!

We decided make this trip to the Grand Canyon and the nearest place to stay around was the City of Las Vegas. It is situated within Clark County in a basin on the floor of the Mojave Desert and is surrounded by mountain ranges on all sides – just perfect =___= We will spent a few days in the city and go to the canyon next.

In March weather in the desert is very nice, +18+23°C. If you plan to visit Las Vegas, go during the week, cause specially in Vegas cool hotels makes very good discounts (good to know).

We lived in this hotel Stratosphere with this tower from where you can make sky jump.

You can move around the city by bus, monorail or taxi. My favourite was monorail, you can see a lot from the above, that's cool.

I never wanted to go to Las Vegas before, but when you're in this place – it's totally cool feeling about how everything is different here. It looks like you're in the movie ) And I saw the billboard with David Copperfield!! Ahahah it's kind of fun, I remember when I was a child and saw his shows on a TV.
