THE LAS VEGAS




Posted by Picasa
Dazzling as ever, stunning to the tee, ravishing in its grandeur, the city that never sleeps didn't disappoint us even one bit even the third time we were there on a short trip for 2 days. Ashwini had a training and I couldn't resist the temptation to tag along even if it meant packing and unpacking for 2 kids - now anyone with even 1 child would know what that means!! With the upcoming training in the morning and the fear of having to deal with 2 over tired cranky kids, we couldn't devote a share fair of time that a huge city like Las Vegas demands. Still the Botanical Gardens at the Bellagio, mesmerising as ever, was the first spot we hit, followed by the grand Caesar's Palace on the first night we were there. On the second evening, we literally ran with the stroller and the diaper bag to see one of the newest addition to the Strip - the Wynn. Tantalising, indeed!! We took solace in the fact that we have been here before and enjoyed the place thoroughly.
We were also lucky that Star Tribune, our local Minnesota newspaper, carried an article on Vegas just the week before and got to our attention a great Thai restaurant Lotus of Siam. We had the best Thai food ever. I am sure just the thought of the Panang Curry I had there would fill me up with the fresh and delicate flavor and the savory aroma and stay with me for years to come.
That I had to spend one afternoon with Vansh sleeping at a bench in Mc Donalds and Jiya in her stroller because considering the huge distance of the room from where we were, that was the best option; I have huge piles of laundry waiting to be washed and an equally huge one to be ironed; Jiya now sleeps according to PST instead of CST (Las Vegas time instead of Minneapolis time, that is) are some other stories altogether.
