Ok. This is where having an infant is helpful. Sleep deprevation actually pays off -- 5 hours sleep and I feel great. My wife is planning on taking off with my son to my parent's place. Unfortunately, they're on vacation somewhere in the Carribbean, so she's by herself at night, but has my brother's and sister-in-law's and nephews to keep her company. I give her a call just to say that I made it ok.
I open the blinds of my hotel window, I have a pleasant view of the parking garage. But in the distance -- wow: mountains and palm trees, a rare combination indeed. Add the crazy architecture and neon lights, and you can only be in Las Vegas.
