Las Vegas was so overwhelming that in the end I didn't take many photos. This place is just so over top. For someone as sensitive as I am, the constant stimulation of all senses is tiring. As the previous times, I didn't venture away from the strip. I gambled a little bit but quickly lost it all. Not a big loss and nothing compared to the stakes of other people.
It's always exciting to get to Las Vegas but I never feel sad leaving. I also now remember why I skipped it during my last trip to the West Coast. I will most likely skip it again next time. At some point the thought 'vapid consumerism' crossed my mind. I was a bit surprised at myself. I guess that I'm also taking part in it but a few years ago, I don't think that I would have had such an idea.
Anyway, yesterday I was happy to drive to LA. Even though the traffic is a pain (a bit like finding yourself on the motorway in Luxembourg at 8 am on a weekday), I find it much more relaxing.
