Las Vegas, Spring, 2002

We decided to visit Las Vegas, lured not for its gambling, but for its outrageous levels of cheese...and we were not disappointed! The place has transformed itself over the years from a seedy Mafia-run center of debauchery into a semi-family-oriented, touristy, seedy center of debauchery. Where else can you have outdoor escalators at almost every block on the strip, luring kids into the M&M shop while locals pass out porn leaflets on the corner?
