Trip To The US - Las Vegas

As mentioned in my last post my wife and I are currently in the US to attend a friend's wedding in Las Vegas.  The wedding occurred two days ago and went very well, and now my wife and I are sitting in an airport terminal using the free WiFi about to leave for New York.

While here in Vegas we did manage to find a book store on The Strip.  And WOW did they have some nice Ian Fleming books.  The book store was Bauman Rare Books which I'd say caters for book collectors (or perhaps lucky gamblers) after some rarer items.  The woman at the counter was very friendly and the store is amazing.  It almost resembles a museum.  My wife and I found six Bond Jonathan Cape first editions on display in a cabinet and a seventh on a shelf among other rare books.  Here's some photos:

Unfortunately I lost all my chips at the roulette wheel and couldn't afford to buy any of the excellent books above.  Next time maybe...

Here's a couple more snaps around Vegas, Nevada and Arizona:
