A few more rounds would have been nice!

Sorry, I am back.  Were you worried about me? :) No I thought not.  Well that was a long way to go and a lot of money to spend for a fight that didn't even last two rounds.  However the spectacle was still quite something, thousands of baying fans (us included).  I was really surprised to see so many Brits - the place was heaving, who says there's a credit crunch?  It was really the fans that made the weekend, all the singing that kept breaking out in the casinos and corridors, on the sidewalks.  I think the Brits probably outnumbered the opponent's fans so a lot of disappointed people on Saturday night.

There did seem to be an awful lot of flesh on display, I know it is Vegas, but even so. I am not a prude but was astonished at the amount of breasts, fake and real, on view, OK they were dressed but only just. I guess it is a bit of a meat market, or "shag fest" as GWE so nicely put it. I guess I don't get out much but I wouldn't let my daughter out looking like that!  I am talking about the guests not the staff.  It certainly is a place to people watch, such a cross section of life wandering around.

The rest of the weekend went by in a LOT of walking, the casinos/hotels are enormous and it seemed to take forever to walk anywhere.  You just about work out where all the short cuts are and it is time to leave.  There was a bit of drinking, as I said, a lot of walking, a fair bit of eating, not too much gambling on our part, although our friends were more into that and won a decent amount.  Three days was certainly long enough for me.  It was nice to see our friends who had flown over from Germany.  As they say, a change is as good as a rest.

Sounds like a fun place! I've never been there, and I'm not sure I want to .
How is everything in France?

It does sound like a fun place. A bit tiring I should think!
I've never been to America.
