Here’s Barbara outside the hotel, in front of a scaled down replica of the

Eiffel Tower.

This is our room at the beautiful Paris Hotel, right on The Strip.

The Main Floor was amazing. In addition to the ever present casino, the place had the look and feel of Paris, complete with streets lined with shops, cafés and restaurants. The ceiling was high and painted to look like the evening sky. The lights were always on so that no matter what the actual time, it always looked like evening.

Here’s the casino under Paris skies.

And we decided on Noodles, a restaurant featuring Asian noodle dishes. We were joined by our friends, Lois and Henry Tannenbaum originally from Commack, and now living in Las Vegas. We had met them earlier this year on our Panama Canal cruise.

Across the street from our hotel is The Bellagio.

Barbara and Lois enjoy the Bellagio’s seasonal lobby display.

The slots in The Bellagio Casino.

Further down The Strip is The Flamingo Hotel with namesake birds and other exotic species on display in the hotel courtyards.

Further along is the beautiful Venetian Hotel with canals and gondolas both inside and out.

This is the outside.

Barbara walks through the halls of The Venetian with its vaulted ceilings and frescos.

The Venetian lobby with accordion music.

It was a great vacation, but it was good to get home.

Some Italian street scenes inside The Venetian.

Moving across the street to Caesar’s Palace

Barbara sits in front of the replica of Rome’s Fountain of Trevi.

Back at our hotel, The Paris. Here are some scenes from our last night before flying home.

On the Rue de las Paix.

Our last night in Vegas with Lois and Henry, at the Café de Louis’ dining alfresco...well as alfresco as you can get dining in an outdoor café that is really indoors.

Here are some final night scenes along The Strip.

The Flamigo, Bally’s and The Paris.
