Anyone who has been to Las Vegas will be familiar with the following saying "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" so unfortunately thats all we can tell you....

Ok Ok we'll fill you in on some details. Vegas is a trip - one massive theme park for adults. The strip is roughly 3 miles long of wall to wall hotel / casinos - but don't think Burswood or even Crown. These hotels are massive and each has a theme: New York New York, the Venetician, Ceasars' Palace, Circus Circus, Paris, Treasure Island etc etc.

They are incredibly well done with amazing attention to detail. You can literally get lost in these places for hours - and we are pretty sure that is the idea - "stay here and gamble your money with us".

The atmosphere is ampliphied by mobs of people in an environment that is best described as liberal. Street drinking is not just tolerated it is expected and there is a distinct sexual feel about everything that goes on without being seedy.

We took in a couple of shows, Rod Stewart at MGM on Saturday night and Zumanity at New York New York on Sunday night. Both were great shows but Zumanity was really amazing. A Cirque de solei adults only production that got the crowd involved from the beginning to the end. It was funny, sexy, suggestive and very entertaining - if it ever comes to a town near you - go!

We partied pretty hard for the three nights we were there particularly on our anniversary with a show (Zumanity), drinks in Cyote Ugly, a water massage in the middle of a hotel foyer and singing and dancing in a very cool piano bar till sometime late or early depending on your perspective.

We left Vegas on a Monday feeling seedy and wondering "was that for real?".
