Vegas is cool!!!! I remember that when we went skiing last year (or the year before) and Mark (v.) and I could drink quite a lot of Margaritas. Here is Vegas it is a different story. I bought a Margarita because you got a nice Vegas souvenir glass (plastic) with it but it proved to be nearly 2 liters of Margarita, and they did not mind to add plenty of alcohol. Right now I’m pretty wasted, because since I’m in the USA I lost my tolerance for high levels of alcohol. Still, I do have the nice glass, so the next cocktail night I’ll be the man!

In Las Vegas it is very very hot. Every time I get out of the car, or I leave an air conditioned casino it is like you are hit in the face hard by a hot towel. 100+ Degrees Fahrenheit seems to be normal here. Argh!

Zion is no more

Yesterday after climbing up the highest mountain (Observation Point) in Zion I went on with my journey. The mountain I climbed was 6000+ feet high and when I reached the top I was quite beat. I did make some photos as proof that I reached the top. I had prepared myself well with lots of water and energy pills… but I noticed that the lack of sleep I experienced yesterday is not very good for climbing a mountain.

I really adored the Zion national park. It was fantastic. Tonight I will spend the night nearby in st. George, and afterwards I’ll head over to Sin City, aka Las Vegas!!!! Of course to make lots and lots of money!
