Las Vegas, Nevada

This trip to Las Vegas wasn't about sight-seeing so I don't have any good photos to share. We spent two days in town primarily for Ed to attend a full day of technical training on Dometic refrigeration and A&E awnings. This will count toward his hours of training required to renew his master certification status with the RV Industry Assoc. I also wanted to spend time with my dear friend, Karen, who lives in Las Vegas. The three of us visited the Paris casino and had dinner at "Les Villages" buffet restaurant. Ooh-la-la! Excellent French cuisine and each cooking station represented a different region of France. The meats, pates, cheeses, pasta, and desserts were excellent. We found this restaurant on a web site of the top 10 buffets in Las Vegas. As fas as I'm concerned, it's the best buffet I've ever enjoyed!

OK, here's the pic I took of Ed & Karen after dinner.

On our second night in town, we went to a performance by the Blue Man Group. It's a mime-comedy-musical staged by three men with their faces and heads painted blue. They interact with each other and the audience without saying a word. Colored lights, strobe, laser and black lights contribute to the experience. It's a party with audience participation and was weird, fun and great entertainment. For more info, visit their web site:

Before the show, we ate dinner at Valentino's Grill, down the hall at the Venetian from the Blue Man Theatre. Our advice - don't go there. Overpriced, bread basket served cold, lamb chops and seafood kabobs not seasoned properly, small portions. Service was very quick but no one ever asked us how our food was.

We did like our RV park - Holiday Travel Park. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Paved sites with gravel under picnic tables, free Wifi, immaculate grounds and laundry facilities, pool and hot tub, for only $32.00 for a full hook-up, pull-thru site. Larry & Gerry, thanks for the recommendation!

Next stop - Zion & Bryce Canyon National Parks
