The Walking Tour

After the tournament, Norm, Vicky, and the UConn contingent had to get ready to see the Cirque show that they had tickets for. We agreed to meet for dinner after the show at around 10 PM.

In the meantime, Lisa decided to nap, and Andy decided to go off and wander the casino.

Eric took me on a walking tour of several of the hotels on the strip to which I had not yet been. We walked through Bellagio, Caesar’s Palace, past Treasure Island. We came back down the opposite side, going through the Venetian and Paris. The detail but into the interiors of the hotels and malls was impressive. And the number of high-end stores was also pretty impressive. I spent a lot of time wondering who actually spends money in those stores.
