Las Vegas

Sunday, March 25, 2012
Last weekend I was lucky enough to go to Las Vegas for the weekend. I went with my friend Amy whom I met while studying abroad in Italy. We hadn't seen each other in a few years (we still keep in touch) and thought we would meet half way in Vegas! It was so much fun! It was so great just chatting with her and catching up.
Il weekend scorso, sono andata a Las Vegas. Ci sono andata con la mia amica Amy cui ho conosciuto in tanto che studiavo a Firenze. Non c'eravamo viste per un po', anche si parliamo ancora spesso, allora abbiamo deciso di trovarci a Vegas! Ci siamo divertite molto! Abbiamo passato il tempo a chiaccherare e fare un weekend rilassante. 

We stayed at Mandalay Bay and the kind lady that checked us in put us on the 60th floor. I was ecstatic! We even had special elevators just for the 60-62 floors. We felt pretty cool.
Siamo stati al Mandalay Bay e la ragazza che ci ha fatto il check in ci ha messo sul 60 piano. Ero contentissima! Avevamo anche gli ascensori speciali solo per i 60-62 piani. Ci siamo sentite molto speciale.

We were so cool. 

One thing I always do when I'm in Vegas is go look at the conservatory at the Bellagio. It never disappoints. This time around it was a Holland theme so lots of tulips (my favorite!) and pretty colors. 
Una cosa che faccio sempre quando vado a Vegas e andare al Bellagio per vedere i fiori. Sono sempre bellissimi. Questa volta il tema era l'ollanda allora c'erano tanti tulipani (i miei preferiti) e colori bellissimi!

This was actually at Ceasar's Palace for lunch.

On St. Patrick's Day we went and saw Kathy Griffin at the Mirage. She was hilarious. Our seats were super close (7 rows back) and before the show started we even saw her walking by. Pretty awesome night. 
La sera di San Patrizio, siamo andati a vedere Kathy Griffin. Era forte! I posti erano molto vicini (7 file in dietro) e l'abbiamo anche vista passare prima che cominciava. Era una sera molto divertente.

Another Vegas classic are the Bellagio fountains. It was slightly windy, but the show was still amazing. 
Un altra cosa tipica sono le fontane al Bellagio. C'era un po' di vento pero' sono comunque belle.

I wanted to go to the pool, but the weather was not cooperating. We still made it down and sat on the chairs for about 15 minutes all wrapped up before we decided it was just too chilly. Mandalay Bay has a gorgeous pool area though. 
Io volevo andare in piscina pero' il tempo non era molto bello.

The wave pool. Almost like being at the beach, but not really. 

All wrapped up! It was quite chilly!

We had a truly fabulous time in Vegas and it was so great to hang out with Amy and catch up. Hope to go back soon!
Ci siamo divertite molto a Las Vegas. Era molto bello passare del tempo con la Amy e rilassarmi. Spero di tornare presto!
