|The Luxor, Las Vegas|
So we decided to stay there on our road trip last week.
It was an interesting place. I loved the Egyptian decor. The inside is quite nice. We had a room in the east tower - you can see one of the black towers rising up to the right side of the pyramid in the above photo. There are two, actually. It was one of those.

Yes. We're nuts.
But it's Vegas, Baby!
|The Double Queen beds were comfy!|
That's a business model I like.
|I wonder if ancient Egyptians had comfort like this?|

I didn't think it had been so long since I was last in Las Vegas (or Lost Wages, as some prefer to call it!). Yet The Strip was quite different than I remember it. New buildings and hotels of all kinds have been built in the interim, convincing me it was longer since I had last been there than I had originally thought.
Vegas just gets brighter and glitzier and crazier with each passing year.
It can be a lot of fun.
However, there is also an undercurrent of human misery there. The line between the two, I think, is often a fine one.
We said good-bye and headed north after breakfast.
