Las Vegas Trip
I went there to work. Not at a casino, but at a Structural Engineering (Design) firm named Martin & Peltyn. The pay is decent and I wouldn't mind getting a job there. Unfortunately I have to get up at the crack of dawn if I do get the position, and I am NOT a morning person. An Internship in Las Vegas @ $13.00 an hour, though, was hard to refuse.
Gambling mecca, vacation paradise, premier business destination - these are all definitions of the city that never sleeps. Reality takes a hike when you enter the world of glittering casinos with their 24-hour gambling excitement. The scarcity of clocks adds to the fantasy of those taking time off from the real world. It is filled with pretty women, free booze, great food and lots of fun. Time stands still.
I could so live there.
