Paris Las Vegas

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 22 May 2010 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Paris Las Vegas is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, USA, that is owned and operated by Harrah's Entertainment. As its name suggests, its theme is the city of Paris in France; it includes a half scale, 541-foot-tall (164.6 m) replica of the Eiffel Tower, a sign in the shape of the Montgolfier balloon, a two-thirds size Arc de Triomphe and a replica of La Fontaine des Mers. The front of the hotel suggests the Paris Opera House and the Louvre.

Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

@Veronique: Merci beaucoup, Veronique ! Oui, ils appellent Las Vegas « la ville de péché » parce que tous les vices qui sont défendus dans les autres états sont légaux ici. Ceci, dans le virage, donne le permis à tous les types d'excès... ;-)
