Las Vegas is a
city of 24/7 ACTION
where CONTRASTS are the NORM.
Within its small strip can be found: extravagantly designed structures with bright lights, fantasy settings, and modernistic touches.
Global sites are also points of interest on the Strip. There are replicas of the Statue of Liberty, a roller coaster, the Sphinx, dancing water fountains, pirate ships, an erupting volcano, and much more.
As eclectic as the structures are the varieties of food. Names of celebrity chefs, like Giada, Mario Batelli, Emeril Lagesse, are advertised in brochures and on buildings to lure vacationeers in to taste their recipes. There are even foodie tours and endless buffets.
While on a family vacation, I decided to carve out some time to digitize photos and write a slice for the Two Writing Teachers' Slice of Life because the contrasts of Las Vegas inspired me.
