A journalist from the UK who visited Singapore during the YOG mentioned that she found Vegas very tacky, especially the casinos. I found it very unreal - but there was something about the place that attracted me. Was it the casinos, the night life, the energy, the lights - I couldnt tell !Probably it was the fact they converted an entire dry desert into a larger than life attraction , or may be it was outright touristy with no pretensions whatsoever !The casinos for instance - it seemed like a potpourri of people who threw cautions to the winds and gambled their way through..it was lady luck they were courting - nothing else mattered . I too felt that life is nothing but a gamble...We won, we lost..we lived it up - but as they say, What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
