    My Trip Report

    I decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather on Saturday by walking the strip, I took many photos along the way... First stop was the Bellagio.

    The current theme is Chinese New Year

    There's a hot tub on the patio and apparently these girls hang out. Tough gig.

    Looking west on Flamingo. The crane on the right is for Caesars $1 billion expansion. Rio and Palms are in the distance. The Playboy bunny is on the Palm's Fantasy Tower and the building beside it with the weird stair looking design is Palms Place (quite possibly the ugliest building in town).

    Here's the complete album for this bunch

    Great pics! The little pepsi ad tacked onto the Toni Braxton side-of-building graphic just adds that last little touch of class to the joint.

    Those pictures are a feast, Kellee! And I was in many of those same places on Saturday. I'm surprised we didn't run into one another.

    Thanks again for the great photos Kellee! What a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky. BTW, I have never seen a rat look quite so cute. :haha:

    Thanks for the pictures, its really nice to see the POV from other fellow Vegas travellers. Also, its nice to see Vegas for those of us who still have to wait awhile till we get out there!!!

    And of course, I can't view them on this lame ass excuse of a computer here at work. I'll have to wait until I get home.

    The rats are better groomed at the B than at IP.

    Glad everyone is enjoying them.

    Bellagio's rat is much cuter than the mouse that spooked me once outside while watching the fountains... Kinda ironic that I've only spotted rodents at Bellagio.

    How funny Becky? It is surprising we didn't cross paths.
