Greetings from Las Vegas

As I am travelling now at the end of December, there will be no regularly-scheduled last-minute blog post with actual content.  Just a picture, because I am in Las Vegas!

The view from the front balcony of The Venetian, with The Mirage (my hotel) in the background on the left.

Earlier that day I also took a trip down to the Hoover Dam, which, I have to say, was pretty damn cool.

View from top of Hoover Dam
The view from the top of the Hoover Dam, that conveys just a bit of how big it actually is.

So long until 2013! And, though it may be a bit early, Happy New Year!
