Nightfall in Las Vegas

I spent some more quality time today in Nevada's own version of Venezia. I took some more photos and video, and had a great ride on one of the gondolas with a terrific gondoliera.

I grabbed this shot on my way out the front door of the casino.
A while back I mentioned in a post that a small group of red and white striped poles in Venice have inspired more mimicry than any of the other palina patterns - here's living the Nevada desert.

As for the campanile, she's a pretty convincing recreation.
If it weren't for the big high-rise in the distance you'd think it was Venice. Hmmm, then again, I don't think we'll ever find the real campanile that close to the Rialto!
Oh well, it's Vegas.
