I’m not much of a gambler, and I like to see the sights.  I’ve been to Las Vegas before, but have never managed to go see the Hoover Dam.  If you haven’t gone, you totally should!  It was very pretty and interesting.  We took the tour and walked across the dam.


It’s awesome feat of engineering, and to think they built the thing in the 30’s, even more impressive.  I also found it interesting that they managed to complete the build two years early, and the thing is really built to last.  If they built it today, I think it’d probably be finished 2 years late, and start falling apart 2 years later.  They don’t build ‘em like they use too.
