Just One Venetian Vegas Cornetto 

After the Caesars buffet breakfast/ brunch. We went for a trotsy to The Venetian. A beautiful hotel with Gondola rides. A more chilled out atmosphere compared to Caesars Palace. Don’t get me wrong it’s all very spectacular. It’s like Blackpool and Skegness on speed, acid, cocaine with a dash of napalm and a hint of cyanide. This place makes, breaks, escapes. It’s spectacular.

 The Venetian has crystals and relaxing vibes.. it’s rather beautiful. One can get lost inside with the being ‘outside’ illusion. With shop assistants in doorways trying to entice people in. Everything is nicely done to help you. But with the want of a tip. The free drinks while playing in the casino are provided with a tip for the waitress. With the random shouts from winners echoing. The smokey atmosphere. There is opportunity if your lucky clover is on your side. The temptation for out of control gambling, in the hope of dollars is imprinted of every face. From the weary to the wide eyes excited ones. 

 It’s hot now. Apparently July is so hot it melts tyres! We went on the outside gondola ride. With some top tips from our Gondolier. I asked.. we got! We were treated to mash up of ‘O Sole Mio’ & Just One Cornetto. Brilliant!

Watch video ..

With a quick Jim Beam Apple to keep my strength up. 

Ange and I went to an Oxygen bar. After a shot of go go juice, various vibrating things. 

I don’t think I’ll ever look at a nasal cannula in the same way again! We then double bubbled our bliss and went for a massage, followed by a dip in Caesars pool. After all of the travelling. Time to chill is good. My Brother is busy legging it about lots of hotels. Ange and I are kind of grinding to a halt now and relaxing. A few dabbles on the ‘Wheel Of Fortune’ casino machines. Has winner winner chicken dinner paid for 2 breakfasts! I don’t think we will ever visit a seaside arcade again for the 2p machines. This is just the bitch! The amount of money spent here by people is just phenomenal. The glitz, the glam, the sunshine, the lights. It’s just an experience that we are glad we had. 

We finished the evening at Hooters #vegas 

The sunshine is doing my mood wonders. One has a hint of dread going back to the cold and darkness and ‘normality’ of England. I think I might suffer SAD all year round there…..:-0 

Sunset Boulevard with Clange

‘Denny was working it real hardDown Sunset Boulevard. Back in 1973. Why would he bother going home. His parents left him on his own. Who knows. Maybe they were out getting stoned’

Sunset Boulevard and the stars walk of fame. Every few paces you get harassed by people peddling their CD’s, up front in yer face. Offering them for free. Only to harass anyone who takes one for a donation. If I’d have known I’d have taken some of my own to give them. Nice little trot around star hand imprints, bar the constant harassment and dickhead behaviour. Some stars have tiny feet compared to my clod hoppers! 

In temperatures of 36c it was time to chillout with water and ice cream and shout ‘Arse’ really loud Tourette’s style when Ange asked me what I was thinking about. (You had to be there)  A hearty lunch at hooters. Why have I never gone before in Nottingham? 

The pilgrimage to the infamous Whisky A Go-Go. Where one of my favourite bands, The Doors played. Then back to driving around in LA traffic again… oooh the traffic! Carpools are great though. But makes me want to be away from cities. Countryside and coastal. 
Some outlet shopping. Then it was off to the pool to relax and chat about the UK with gold in the jacuzzi.  Oh yes… Pool dippy dippy because jaws and man o wars don’t live in pools! No kid turds either… for Clange! Everyone is so friendly here. It’s so refreshing. Make me so ashamed of my own crippling antisocialness. Ange has my back as she is chattier than a shivering horse on acid. 

It’s been a whistle stop tour of Los Angeles. Yes I want to return. Only so much we could fit in between the constant troffing marathons 😉 
With them playing ‘yellow car’ and tramp spotting.. which awarded ‘tramp stamps’ kudos for tents, trolleys etc. A lot pitch tents literally on the sloping verges on highways… noise, pollution, is it safer?Again. In the 21st century I ask is it a choice due to drug/alcohol addiction, circumstances, mental health? What is society doing? Where is the help? Like in San Francisco.. where the tour guides don’t tell you how bad it is. Trump what are you doing? But like various locals told us there.. there is help, food, shelter, restraining. They just choose in an all year sunny climate to do what they do on the streets. 

Off to Vegas in the morn.
