Catch up on the past days here:
Friday was our last full day in Vegas. The morning was pretty uneventful-- woke up, breakfast, went to several sessions, lunch, then one more session. Then, my mom, aunt, and I headed down to New York, New York in order to ride the roller coaster. My aunt and I, especially my aunt, are big roller coaster fans. This was a must do for us.
The roller coaster was ok, not the best one ever. Do not ride in the back if you don't want it to hurt you. My shoulders are STILL sore from the battering I took on it. But, once I learned my lesson and sat in the front-middle of the car, it was a lot better and a lot more fun.

|So many colors!|
|No fountains now, obviously|
A little bit after this, we headed to dinner, and then my aunt told us bye as her flight left early the next morning. Then, my mom & I headed to Treasure Island to watch what used to be the pirates show. It has now turned into a PG-13 burlesque.
|Pretty boat, at least|
You may be wondering why I referred to this trip as a love/hate relationship. Here is what I liked about Las Vegas:
- Pretty lights
- Cool architecture on most of the buildings
- Good food & beverages
- Amazing shows
- Smoking everywhere
- Seeing old people connected to their slot machines by what I referred to as their life support
- The HUGE amount of hooker caller cards everywhere. No matter where you go, you have people trying to hand you those little cards with basically-naked women & their phone numbers. No thanks.
- The hooker advertisements that follow you around. Seriously, they're everywhere.
- The insane amount of public intoxication. I have been to New Orleans frequently, I have seen people drinking around in the streets. The amount I saw here, though, far outweighed that.
We'll see if I go back. I liked the shows and architecture, but I can get that elsewhere. Things that are uniquely Vegas, though, just don't appeal to me.
