The inside of The Luxor - bit wierd! Inside it's hollow!

Mandalay Bay, The Sphinx and The Luxor

We promised you suprises!

We checked into the Luxor Hotel for a couple of days of luxury! The Luxor is a hotel that's shaped like a pyramid (and is at the posh end of town). We made the most of the occasion, checking out the pools and all of the gambling! As we walked through Helen decided to open up her "slot machine account" by popping a couple of quarters in to one of the machines. On her SECOND pull of the handle she won 150 quarters back! The machine went crazy!! Flashing and buzzing!! The money just poured out! Helen has a lot of time for gambling now! She's not even old enough in Nevada State (21 years and up!). Great stuff.

That night Gareth suprised Helen by producing two tickets to see the Broadway show of Saturday Night Fever at The Sahara Hotel. It was great! All the old favourites were there...

..." Ah! Hah! Hah! Staying aliiiiiiive!"

..."More than a woman!!!"

Ahem! Moving on swiftly... After that we headed back to the Luxor, which at night has a huge beam of light coming out of the top of it! Very random...
