There is as much poetry in a city like Las Vegas, regardless of its reputation as Sin City, than any other. Admittedly, it is very much a place to experience and indulge, rather than to watch or reflect in.

Having recently spent a week there, I was overwhelmed with ideas amongst all the “superficiality, shows, sparkle and sin”.
It has as much depth of character as a city that is hundreds of years old in England. Inspiration for the here and now rather than history…..
