Viva Las Vegas!

A shopoholic like me ditched what should have been an evening.... night.... dawn to remember.. trading it for our ThanksGiving Weekend was just fabulous.... we took a small holiday to Las Vegas , the Grand Canyon and Lake Havasu City....
Special Thank You to M, for making this happen!
Just uploading a few snaps to share with you all.....
Stratosphere.... hotel, casino and has the world’s most insane thrill rides at 1,149-feet above ground! The most I could dare, was the Big Shot... The Big Shot thrill ride catapults 16 riders from the 921-foot high platform up the Tower's mast to a height of 1,081 feet. Traveling at 45 miles per hour (though it feels a LOT more than that) !!
See what I mean? I took this shot when I was back on Terra Firma ... still a bit wobbly at the knees!!!

Bally's Jubilee show has the "Best Showgirls" and a show worth watching, though at first you may cringe at the thought of going to a topless show .. but believe me, the show has such stunning sets and costumes, you will be lost in appreciating that! .......And also the total grandeur of the lighting,the 'chakpak' everywhere ... dazzling!!


The GRAND CANYON
....Breath taking, awesome, huge (such a small word to describe it!!) all of 12,000 years of beauty that time cannot fade! The immense expanse making us realise how tiny we are ! The peace that we feel... take a moment to feel the tranquility, far away from our hectic lives!
Hold hands and watch the shadows lengthen over a stunning sunset.... feel the cold wind on your face... Nature is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!

Lake Havasu
Lake Havasu city is famous for it's 'London Bridge'! Yes, the very same bridge of ' London bridge is falling down, falling down..' When this bridge was sinking , R.P McCulloh bought it, had it broken down, shipped it to Arizona and rebuilt it in it's original glory.
Surrounding this bridge one gets a feel of being in a English village !

A WONDERFUL WEEKEND... PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!!

  2. hi manasi, thanks for the comment, no, I dont think it is the same as tendli or tindora. not too familiar with the tendli name. Zucchini is a type of a squash...and is available at any american grocery stores. This curry is really good though, hope you try it!
