Twitpic of the Trip

The “Twitpic of theTrip” was found moments into our trip and only took us checking into our room to be found.  It’s the view from our Go room at Flamingo.  Keren and I don’t do the $20 trick simply because I find it amusing to see were we end up.  This trip, they gave us a marvelous view of Caesars Palace, all of it with a touch of Bellagio, Mirage & Linq to boot.  However this picture only captures exactly what you saw when you walked into the room.  Caesars is such a massive property it requires some unique angles to get her all in on one picture.  Not in this room.  While we don’t particularly like staying or playing at Caesars, her significance in the evolution of Vegas is the primary reason she will always have a place in my heart.  I enjoy this view so much that, in our final night in Vegas, Keren allowed me to lay on the couch by the windows adoring the view until I fell asleep.
