Glitz And Glam In Vegas

14 01 2012

I was in Las Vegas for 26 hours this week, and what a fun whirlwind it was! Two Faces of Israel programs, one hotel stay in a gigantic king-sized bed (I’ve never felt so small!) and a personal tour of the strip.

The large-scale art and architecture was awesome in the literal sense of the term.  Yair has never been to Vegas and I only made it to four of the hotels (Wynn, Encore, Venetian, Aria), so I will definitely be returning with the beau and the RV.

A fun fact: The owner of the Wynn and Encore is / was vegan, and therefore every restaurant in the two hotels has a full-on veg menu with vegan appetizers, entrees and desserts.  Sweet!

I had a great time overall, though I don’t think that I would want to live in Las Vegas… There were many beautiful, wealthy and bejeweled people parading through the casinos and channeling the glitz and glam of the city.  I don’t think that my core values are reflected by Las Vegas (or at least by the strip!) and I know that if we lived there it would be really easy to let those other values “sink in”.
