It’s currently my 4th day in Vegas, but I’m a bit behind in my blog posts. Part of the reason is because I’m on my laptop and am working from my hotel room – and the other is because… well… this is Vegas.
On day 2 Lisa and I went to the MGM as we had to walk through there to get to the monorail, which we took later to the convention centre. The Blog World Expo wasn’t until the next day, but I wanted to make sure I knew where it was and how to get there, as well as get my badge early in case there’d be long line-ups the following day.
Here’s a short clip showing a paid mobile phone charging station:
John actually did this not too long ago during another convention here in Vegas, but wanted to see how much the price dropped in just 8-months. It happened to drop $180,000 in just 8-months, and the price is amazing for what you can get. In Vancouver, the same house would cost around 3-million dollars. In Vegas, these houses are selling for around $520K+
Whenever John saw an office in one of the houses, he just had to sit down at the desk, lol.
After house hunting, John and his wife Sarah took us to Caesar’s Palace since they had a dinner arranged for later that evening. John knows a lot about Vegas so he was a good tour guide.
It was funny. We went to a toy store and John couldn’t help but play with all the toys like a little kid. They had a giant Trojan horse outside and we climbed up into it, but unfortunately the shots didn’t turn out too well.
Later we went to an Apple store and it was pretty crazy – the customer representative to customer ratio must have been 2:1! I could swear there were probably 30-35 staff in the store. I walked about 7 meters in and had already been greeted by half a dozen of them!
Lisa and I had a crazy long walk home, after getting a bit lost and trying to walk back to the Monte Carlo from Caesar’s Palace on a Friday night in Vegas, but had a nice eventful day.
Day 3 was the most eventful day so far and will most likely be the highlight of the entire trip. Stay tuned as it’ll be a fantastic post.
