I’ve just arrived in Las Vegas, ready for the SharePoint conference 2014.
Since this is my first trip to the US, I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I was somewhat surprised by what i found in Las Vegas.
You see bits of it in films and the like, but that doesn’t prepare you for this. If you like ‘shiny things’ then this is place for you!
I’m staying in one of the cheapest hotels in the city, and yet i still have a 1 bedroom suite, with a kitchen, separate living area, a bedroom with a king size bed, a bathroom, walk in wardrobe and free WiFi. Not bad for £58 a night!
Its not all moonlight and roses though
However, dig a little deeper and you get to see more of the ‘real’ Vegas. Just like any other big city I’ve been to all over the world once you can get under the skin, its a very different story. I’ve not seen so many homeless people since i was in Cape Town, which is appalling when you consider how much money there is here.
If you want the Vegas experience, then roaming the streets is not the way for you. Instead, stay in one of the big hotels, and you’ll be able to hide away from the reality.
