The Gondola Experience

The Venetian Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas. I was really amused by the way the boats seemed to hover in mid-air due to the crystal clear nature of the water.

On one hand, Las Vegas can be called a man-made wonder as building and maintaining a city this big in the middle of a desert is no joke. On the other hand, the amount of energy and water wasted just to decorate Las Vegas in the middle of a desert, while people in other deserts die of thirst is sickening.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
