Las Vegas glam, dollars and celebs

This is the blog of Mark Wordsworm, the travelling worm. I’m a 25-year-old bookmark and can proudly boast my own Hallmark serial number, 95 HBM 80-1. You’ll probably want to read all about me and my Travelling Companion (the TC).

Today’s travel notes

Me and the TC are in Sin City, otherwise known as Las Vegas. It’s a place of parties, winners, and losers, all a-glimmer and a-shimmer under the desert sun of Nevada, USA. The TC tried her hand in Caesar’s Palace Casino and made the grand winning of $93.40. She declared herself well satisfied and left it at that.

My impressions? In the desert did we a pleasure strip decree.

The book I’m in

Rules of Vengeance, by Christopher Reich. Yes, still the same book. Travelling is a time-consuming occupation.

Recommended restaurant

La Salsa Cantina, in the Forum Shops mall on the Las Vegas Strip. Good, simple food served with experience and a smile.

Travel tip

Las Vegas is hot during the day, even in spring time.

Me on the Las Vegas Strip:

“Caverns measureless to man” inside the Forum Shops mall:

The grand edifice of Caesar’s Palace, just one of many casinos on the Strip:

Inside, pleasure domes…

… and miracles of rare device:

The gambling halls, where serious money changes hands:

Back outside, we encountered stretch limos, palm trees and high fashion:

Where else in the world will you find Venice and ancient Rome on the same street?

Not everything glitters and gleams in Las Vegas. The view from our hotel window was a bit dreary by day:

Add a touch of shadow and some razzle dazzle and it’s pretty by night:

Drop in on the Eiffel Tower amidst the palm trees:

With a bow to Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and courtesy of the Bellagio Hotel:

And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething,
As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing,
A mighty fountain momently was forced

A few people heard that yours truly (Mark Wordsworm, Travelling Worm) was in town, and so I was in high demand for photo ops. Johnny was slightly nervous but delighted when I found the time for this shot:

That’s all for today, dudes.
