Throughout my childhood summers, my family loved a quick roadtrip to Las Vegas. They would book one room where we'd pack it up like raccoons. And like everyone there, my mom dreamed of winning big. I never cared for it but it's grown on me since. I especially look forward to the drive. It's refreshing to sneak away from the city to soak in the raw desert.

Vegas is a strange place filled with even stranger people. Everyone has no concept of time or money. It's crazy. We went for Kylie Minogue's concert. It was the last leg on her US tour and she was spectacular! I'm still recovering from all the dancing and singing. I have one snapshot of Kylie doing her thang. Vegas suits her perfectly so I hope she returns.
