As we left the airport I drove Elena up Las Vegas Blvd to see the hotels, then we stopped at the super market to pick up necessities for the next morning. Wednesday morning we went to a mall for Elena to have her first experience at a American Mall and we bought her a hat to wear to shade her face. Then we drove to the Stratosphere to meet up with one of my long term readers, Marcel and his lovely wife Judith. They are from Toronto, Canada and did a road trip across the US and stopped here for a few days to meet up with us.
We first went up to the top of the Stratosphere tower which is 1,149 feet tall which is over 100 stories high. Up there we had a great view of the whole Las Vegas Valley. After that Marcel and Judith graciously treated us to a buffet lunch at the Bellagio Hotel. Elena enjoyed seeing and tasting so many items available. I over did it too especially the deserts.
Thursday and Friday we spent going to different shopping areas to buy items needed for our apartment. Thursday night I was able to get 2 free tickets to the Chris Angel Believe show at the Luxor Hotel. Elena enjoyed the magic show and was amazed at the huge Egyption type displays.
Friday evening I cooked Elena dinner and would not let her into the kitchen to help which frustrated her since she had always cooked for me.
