Believe it or not, I’ve never previously set foot in Vegas before. Two words: holy crap. This city was truly unlike any I’ve been in previously. It was overwhelming at first. It’s very in-your-face, even more so than some European cities I’ve visited. But the purpose of this trip wasn’t to immerse myself in the sites, but rather to meet my godson and nephew on the day of his baptism! Also, to visit with the proud parents, who we don’t get to see nearly often enough given that they live here (he’s stationed at the local AF base).
