It's Vegas baby!

Letter from Eastie will be coming to you from Corona, California this week. I'm visiting a friend of mine. Just got back from two days in Vegas. I took about a million pictures since it was my first time in Vegas. (That place is insane!!) Here is a sampling:

    After 5 years living in Vegas, your Joshua Tree post made me homesick, but the Vegas pictures themselves didn't. It's easy to become permanently sated with the glitz of of the Strip -- but the desert will feed your soul forever.

    I agree. I don't think I could ever spend much more than a weekend in Vegas. If I did, I would definitely be making the Grand Canyon/Hoover Dam tour.
