Las Vegas

Depois de sairmos do death Valley chegamos a cidade de Pahrump - a 60 milhas de Las Vegas - na qual tinhamos um amigo chamado Walter Studebaker e ja haviamos passado por aqui em outras viagens. Nos hospedamos no RV Park do Saddle West Hotel and Cassino. Na manha seguinte antes de seguirmos viagem, tomamos um delicioso e farto cafe da manha no hotel, alias um dos melhores desjejuns que ja experimentamos...e seguimos rumo a Las Vegas.

Aqui em Vegas visitamos a oficina do Rick Dale - do programa "Rick's Restoration" ("Restauradores" ai no Brasil) e a loja Pawn Shop do programa "Pawn Stars" ("Trato feito" no Brasil) e ambos passam no History Channel.

Nos hospedamos no RV Park que fica no estacionamento do Cassino Circus, Circus, com mais de 800 espacos para motorhomes. Encontramos muitas familias europeias e australianas viajando com motorhomes alugados. Como o calor estava "escaldante" resolvemos aproveitar a piscina e aqui se ouvem varios idiomas e sotaques diferentes.

A noite fomos passear na Las Vegas Boulevard, mais conhecida como "The Strip" pois e o lugar de maior concentracao de cassinos e e aqui que se encontram os mais famosos. Ja estivemos 3 vezes em Vegas e, estar em Las Vegas e nao jogar em algum cassino, e nao ter estado em Las Vegas... assim que desta vez resolvemos tentar a sorte no "iconico" Flamingo - que foi o primeiro a ser construido no meio do deserto por "Bugsy Seagle". Sempre estabelecemos uma cota de U$ 20,00 para cada um: coloquei U$ 5,00 na primeira maquina...e ganhei US37,00!!! Mais U$5,00 na segunda...e ganhei US$ 34,00!!! Entao resolvi parar por aqui, porque como diz o ditado "quando a sorte e muita...ate santo desconfia..." resolvi garantir o que ja havia ganho para nao perder tudo, ja estava de bom tamanho...kkk.

Las Vegas e aquele tipo de lugar que e totalmente diferente de dia e a noite...quase impossivel demonstrar o que ela realmente e atraves de fotos, mas tentamos, de qualquer forma...

After leaving Death Valley we arrived at the town of Pahrump - about 60 miles from Las Vegas - where we had a friend called Walter Studebaker and where we have been a couple of times before visiting him. We stayed overnight at the RV Park at the parking lot of the Saddle West Hotel and Casino. The next morning we headed towards Vegas, but before we had breakfast at the hotel and it was a "big, strong" one, by the way, one of the best breakfast buffets we have ever had...

In Vegas we visited Rick Dale's restoration shop and the pawn shop from the program Pawn Stars, both series are on History Channel.

We registered at Circus RV Park, which is located just beside the Circus, Circus Hotel and Casino and they have over 800 sites for camping. As the temperature was extremely high we decided to enjoy the pool and here one listens to several different foreign languages...many Europeans tourists on vacation with rented motorhomes traveling the US.

At night we strolled through Las Vegas Boulevard - where most of the casinos are located and there was a crowd there, we have never seen Vegas like this, almost impossible to go anywhere. We have been here 3 times before and everytime we are here we play some at the slot machines. We establish an amount for each one and, whether you win or loose, that is it...no more! So, this time we decided to try our luck at the Flamingo - I played $5,00 at the first machine...got $37,00; more $5,00 at the second machine...got $34,00...decided to quit and get my money, to guarantee what I had won...

Vegas is that kind of place that is completely different during the day and at night and it is almost impossible to show exactly what it looks like in pictures, but we tried...
