Let’s deviate from the norm here and visit this time USA! It is almost a year now since I visited the United States of America for the second time. I have been to many places and cities around the world but there are some places which I truly miss. One of it is Las Vegas. Visiting the so-called “Entertainment and Gaming Capital of the World” is truly a fun and memorable experience.

I was browsing some photo albums this afternoon. I landed in one of  my  albums  taken in San Francisco, California. It is around 8 months now since my visit in this city. I experienced a lot there and I am so thankful about it. I only did not met good friends but I also experienced many interesting sights due to them.  To Ate Mary, Brianna and Jacky, thanks for being  great hosts  and  tour guides. I and my sister are forever grateful about it.  You are simply awesome!

San Francisco (Spanish for “Saint Francis”) was founded on June 29, 1776, when colonists from Spain established a fort at the Golden Gate and a mission named for St. Francis of Assisi a few miles away.  The California Gold Rush of 1849 brought rapid growth, making it the largest city on the West Coast at the time.

Halloween celebration is over..so as my one month vacation in the United States of America. It seems like yesterday when I visited this  big country. One of the cities I visited was the “Gaming and  Entertainment Capital of the World” . Las Vegas is always a very interesting city for me. I always love it there. It was actually my second visit in the US and I believed I will keep on coming there again.

One of the hotels we explored was the Stratosphere tower and hotel. We also climbed on top of the tower. From there, you can have  a fantastic view of the city of Las Vegas and its surroundings. There are interesting rides you can experience on top of it. The Big Shot, Insanity, X-scream and  Sky Jump Las Vegas. If you are courageous enough, you can try all the  rides there. Sorry but these rides are not for me.

The  highlight of our visit there was  when we witnessed the setting of the sun. It was spectacular!
