Las Vegas--- a tourist resort (1)

The next day after the commencement we went touring to Las Vegas, which was well known for its casinos. We went there with a classmate of my son’s and his parents, who also came from China for their son’s commencement.

We had to fly to Denver in Colorado State first, and then we transferred to Las Vegas.

United States has four time zones. When it is in daylight-saving time, the eastern area of the US is twelve hours later than Beijing time. From the East to the West, the time difference is 13, 14, 15 hours in proper order. The district where my son lives is 13-hour time difference with Beijing time. Denver is 14 hours, and Las Vegas like California off the west coast is 15 hours. No wonder, those parents always answered the phones from their children in the US at daytime.

Before I went abroad, a colleague of mine gave me a send-off lunch. During lunch, she said you would stand on your head very soon with saying it in fun. What she said was true because the US is at the back of China on the earth. How imaginative she was!

When the plane flew over Las Vegas, it was night. We were all strongly attracted by the city brilliantly illuminated. The plane roared down to the ocean of lights. Wow! What a charming ever-bright city!
