Las Vegas, USA

I got this card back in time (in 2004 to be more precise) from Charity....wherever she goes, she always sends me postcards...even if she hasnt heard from me for ages, she always remembers to write....obviously not everyone is a lousy pal as me...

as she had written on the back, this one was sent when she and Scott were in Sin City for their anniversary and they were having a great time. I dont doubt that, knowing what all Vegas can offer...and its not just gambling and casinos....
the card shows the Spectacular Entrance of MGM Grand. It is a luxury hotel casino located on the Las Vegas Strip which opened as a Hollywood themed resort. The MGM Grand Las Vegas is the second largest hotel in the world and second largest hotel resort complex in the United States behind The Venetian.

The 30-floor main building is 293 feet (89 m) high and features five outdoor pools, rivers, and waterfalls that cover 6.6 acres, 35,000 m2 convention centre, the MGM Grand Garden Arena, CBS Television City, and the Grand Spa. It also houses numerous shops and night clubs, 16 restaurants, and the largest casino in Clark County.
It has 6,852 rooms! And it has a 13th floor (if we have in mind that many hotels dont have a 13th floor or use it as a vacant space, due to the notorious number 13...

6852 rooms...my my my....
