Today we had a long drive out to Las Vegas!!!We started early with the great breakfast at the Yosemite Bug Hostel, and were on the road by 08h30.It was a long and pretty uneventful drive.I used the time to upload photos from my camera to my laptop and label them.Always a good idea to try and keep on track with the admin!!!We had numerous pitstops on the way to get fuel and cups of coffee for the driver and loo stops for everyone!!!We eventually crossed the border at around 4pm, and stopped for photos below the sign "Welcome to Navada"!!Wayne had been going on and on all day about the buffet and finally we had arrived!!Buffalo Bills Casino at Primm, Navada had a great buffet for $12.00 for all you can eat.We all were starving by this stage, and I tucked into the salad & veggie bar - really delicious, and so good to be eating healthy vegetables.We set off after dinner for our next stop for the night, Las Vegas Baby!!!We got to our hotel, Super 8 by 8pm that night, and once our rooms were assigned, we rushed to get ready for our Crazy Limo Drive at 9pm.Martha & I were sharing a room - our room card didn't work, so we were delayed in getting ready, and of course had to glam ourselves up for the disco later!!!JThe group met up in Jo's room for a pre-Limo drink, but we missed out on that, and met up in the hotel foyer at 9pm for the Limo!!!Wow, when this thing pulled up, it was incredible!!!Imagine, a SUV Stretch Limo!!!Have you ever!!!Anyway, more photos and we loaded our cooler box onboard and set off!!Chris was our driver, and he cranked up the tunes and strobe lights ~ I swear it was like being in a night club!!!Amazing!!!First stop was for a group photo at the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign!!!We saw a couple on their wedding night there having their photo taken!!We were all on this incredible buzz, and having the time of our lives!!Next stop was the Freemont Street Laser Light show - when we arrived at Freemont Street there was a band doing a live gig right in the middle of the square, which was awesome - thousands of people milling about!!Martha & I happened to come across the 'Chippendale' photo booth!!Real live Chippendales pose with you for a photo!!!Not knowing what to expect, I volunteered for a photo with these 2 Chippendales, and next thing I knew, well, I was having a photo taken posing with 2 semi naked beef cakes placing my hands on their chest & butt!!!LOL!!!! It was hilarious, and with Martha standing on the side lines almost wetting herself laughing at me, I almost couldn't compose myself!!!The photos then come up on these screens outside the booth!!! Oh my!!! I couldn't even bring myself to buy them!!!Really awful!!!But so much fun!!!Next thing, everything goes dark, and the laser light show starts!!!Really cool!!Back on the limo afterwards and we drove down the famous Las Vegas strip - again with the crazy tunes and disco lights!!Such fun!!!Our limo ride ended at the Bellagio Hotel.We all thanked Chris, and made our way to the lobby of the hotel.Hoping to catch a glimpse of the dancing fountains, but we were informed that it was too windy and there were no fountain shows on tonight.We then headed through the casino to find the night clubs.We had been recommended PURE at Ceaser's Palace, so we headed across there.There was a long queue, so I headed down to the front of the line where I found out that groups of ladies could come to the front and get in free.Bonus!!!Charlotte, Dawn, Claudia, Rachel, Martha & I went in while the boys waited inline.We found ourselves a spot on the dance floor.I ordered myself a G&T for a whopping $9.00!!!Martha & I had ordered drinks at Buffalo Bills Casino bar where we'd stopped for the buffet and both our drinks had only cost $5.00!!!Amazing the mark up!!!We boogied until the wee hours!!!Some girls hooked up guys they met, but we made a pact that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so no names mentioned!!!LOL!!! J
At around 1h30am, I left the night club, and Robert joined me on a Roulette table.I cashed in $40.00 and had a ball!!!I played for about 45 minutes, and walked away with $200.00 ~ very chuffed!!!We then joined up with Dan, Maxine and Joanne at the Seahorse bar opposite the PussyCat Gals!!! A bar with scantily clad pole dancers!!! Martha & Hokee joined us for a last drink, then Dan, Maxine, Joanne & I shared a cab back to the hotel and the other 3 went back to PURE.Got to bed around 03h30 in the morning and slept like the dead!!!Martha got in around 04h30 in the morning!!
