Walking the Streets
Las Vegas, Nevada: There wasn't a
basketball game today until 6p, so we entertained ourselves walking the streets
of The Strip in Las Vegas.
Where else can a person witness incredible marble statues?
Oh, that's right. Italy!
I found this guy (right) hanging out under an olive tree.
We also visited the gorgeous Spring flower display at the Bellagio Hotel:
The 2014 Spring flower display in the conservatory of the Bellagio Hotel was
very nice - and we noted they are "reusing" favorites from previous
displays. Recycling is fine - and a "framed art work" featuring living plants
(photo above) is always interesting.
The Bellagio Hotel must spend thousands of dollars every day on flowers. The
fresh arrangements in the lobby are always jaw-dropping... though it takes a
lot to compete with the stunning glass flower ceiling in the lobby created
The Bellagio Hotel also features the Jean Philippe Chocolate shop, where we
tasted a perfect gelato.

Continuing our walk up and down The Strip, we toured through the
new Aria hotel and saw new condo buildings sprouting up on Las Vegas Boulevard.

Water feature at the Aria Hotel - water cascading down textured a cement wall.
This cooling fountain is in the valet area.

By six o'clock we had rested and were ready for the Arizona v
The stands were packed tonight. Arizona fans filled the
stadium and are asking to buy our tickets for the final game tomorrow night.
If you've read the papers, you know Arizona beat Colorado
and UCLA beat the 'Furds... giving us a very good game tomorrow at 3p
pacific - Arizona v UCLA.
May the best coach win.
It's on TV.
