Settled (for now) in Sin City

For the rest of November, we have a steady base to work from (and good wi-fi to work with).  After leaving Bullhead City on the 27th of October, we made the trek over the Colorado River to Laughlin, NV, where wi-fi was once again spotty at best.  But for the 4 nights we were there, we enjoyed good food, played a little in the casino, and rested.  Then, on All Hallow’s Eve, we put Red Rover in drive once more and headed over the mountains and into the valley into Sin City.

Vegas, baby, yeah!

Now, for years, every time I was supposed to go to Las Vegas, something happened to prevent it.  But last year, on our trial run, we broke the curse and decided this time we’d make it a longer stay and get out of the resorts and do some things.

We spent the night of the 31st at the Rio Casino and Resort.

Overlooking the Strip, we could see Caeser’s Palace, The Wynn Resort, Treasure Island and the High Roller, the Las Vegas Ferris wheel.

We had dinner at Guy Fieri’s El Burro Borracho, a Mexican restaurant inside the Rio.  Now, some of you who know me might remember my issue with all things onion/garlic.  Let me tell you, I didn’t have a problem.  Why?  Because they were more than happy to get me something I could eat.  It was a huge burger and some delicious fries, but completely worry free for me.  Mom had an enchilada and a margarita, which led her to ponder taking the Voodoo zip line from one side of the Rio to the other from the roof.  Luckily, it was only one margarita or it might have turned from talk to truth.

We checked out yesterday and made our way over to our AirbnB for the month, which is only a block or so away from the Rio.  We spent today getting settled and will start our explorations of the city tomorrow.
