Another downfall is that our fabulous Flamingo hotel and resort is not so fabulous after all. Out of all the hotels we stayed at on this trip, including the stops during our drive down, this was the dingiest—and I’ll admit a bit dirty—room yet.
We took a walk down the strip looking for a restaurant, and we both felt herded down a street like cattle with no restaurant in view. We would have had to walk into to every resort, past the casinos, before finding any place to eat. So back to our hotel we went and had dinner at the Japanese restaurant downstairs, then locked ourselves in our room for the night.
First impression of Vegas ... not impressed.
So far ... Vegas, not so miserable, but I wouldn’t come back.
