Pictures: Las Vegas Overview

Yesterday I arrived at Vegas for Microsoft's Mix conference. And thanks to my lucky charm I got a room with a view at Mandalay Bay Hotel – from my window in the 33rd floor I overlook the complete strip, the famous Las Vegas Boulevard sporting all the grand casinos:

I brought my netbook, so this is just a little preview: watch out for more photos (and HDRs) next week!

On the right side: MGM Grand (8000 beds) is America's largest hotel.

And you can check out Rhyolite a semi standing Ghost town, or Valley Of Fire , all in about 1hour drive from Vegas. Or even 15 min away is Corn Creek which in the middle of the desert has trees, pond (with fish) and grass which is unique for this part of the Southwest.

If you get a chance go see the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and if possible Death Valley, they're all well worth a visit. As well as Caesar's Palace.
