day 2

we drove from reno to las vegas, stopping for a peek at lake tahoe. it was another long day in the car - even though we got a late start and stopped a lot to stretch and take pictures. the desert went on FOREVER. we were a little crazed by the time we got to vegas. and then, vegas. oh lordy, vegas. i haven't been in a LONG time. and although there's a lot i recognize on the strip, there's a lot i don't. plus, it was las vegas on a saturday night. and really, how do i usually spend my saturday nights? on the couch, cuddling monkey, watching a movie with shawn and sewing. vegas on a saturday night seemed completely crazy for the first couple hours of our night. and then we wandered into the cosmopolitan, found a comfy couch near a bar with a good vantage point for people watching. suddenly, our saturday night, although entirely not our thing, was fun. possibly a little too much fun. we slept until 1, well past check out. so, we're staying an extra night and leaving for the grand canyon at the crack of stupid tomorrow. 

 

 

 

 

the cosmopolitan is as awesome as those oh so weird commercials would lead you to believe. gorgeous design with a sense of whimsy. luxury without snobbery. we kind of loved it. we could probably wander there, looking at all the art and stuff, for hours and never get bored. plus, there are art-o-mats throughout the hotel. i've been obsessed with art-o-mats forever. there was only one in chicago and it was somewhere we almost never went. so, to see them everywhere i turned was delightful.
