Hours after setting out I made it back to the MGM to meet Carola and Tim at the pool. Now they know how to holiday, no getting lost and dehydrated in the Nevada heat for them, instead they prefer a routine of sleep late, go to the gym, lie by the pool to catch some rays then get ready for the nightlife, party all night and repeat. Very relaxed, very fun, I think I need to take a leaf out of their book.
So a few rays, then a bit of shopping, then time to head back out to the strip.
Less than 5 minutes and I was already running in to Elvis. He is alive and well, I knew he would be. Checked out Planet Hollywood's Miracle Mile where the ceiling is painted as the sky ,very pretty. But by far the most beautiful was watching the fountains at the Bellagio
After a couple of hours out on the strip staring up at everything, crossing footbridges and constantly going up and down escalators, combined with tiredness and jetlag, my vertigo was starting to make me seriously dizzy, I must have looked like a bit of a crazy woman as I summoned the courage to cross my last footbridge for the night as I noticed people looking at me strangely and moving out of my way. Even the crazys that hang out on the bridges were starting to keep out of my way. No more heights tonight, time to head inside and stop scaring people :)
Back safe inside the MGM I met up with Carola and Tim (they went to a Madonna concert - I didn't - I don't think Madge has been behaving nicely enough lately to deserve my money) for a midnight dinner at Wolfgang Puck's. Scrumptious crab cakes, prosciutto pizza and the signature dish of potato crisps drizzled with loads of blue cheese and truffle oil dressing - are you kidding me?!? Sooooo good!
Somehow or another it was 3am again, where does the time go in this town? At least I resisted a final nightcap before bed tonight :)
