After the boarder we got street maps and information about points of interest at the Mesquite visitor center. When I got back to the car I just wondered about our lopsided 5th wheel. And what was this next to one of the tires?
Yep, one of our springs was broken. So let’s drive slowly to a mechanic. Since it would take two days to fix the springs (let’s do them all) we booked two rooms at the Circus Circus in Las Vegas. So off we went to the city of lights.
It happened that we arrived on Halloween. At Fremont Street Experience – at the old strip – we saw crazy costumes, good live music and party all night long. But the real illusion is the strip itself.
Strolling through Paris, New York and Venetia we also made a quick stop in Egypt and the Caribbean. At the Casinos you could hear the slot machines clinging and check out for a game of poker and roulette.
During daytime Las Vegas is not really an eye catcher so we drove to the Hoover Dam. This massive dam supplies 7 states but it was strange to see the low water level due to the extensive draught.
Back on the strip we saw volcanoes and water fountains next to a pirate show. It was just crazy. After two days we left the city of illusions, picked up our 5th wheel and headed towards Death Valley.
