Las Vegas - Day 1
February 2011
On Thursday night, after landing at McCarran and checking into the Paris we headed out to see the Bellagio fountain show, the volcano at the Mirage and walked up and down the strip until after midnight Pacific Time followed by a relaxing late night meal at le Cafe Ile St Louis, an outdoor cafe that's inside the fake outdoor environment of the Paris casino.
