We joined the throng of people heading back to the bus and were lucky enough to get onto and get a seat on the first one back (they are about every 15 minutes). The bus ran smoothly until it hit the Strip and then crawled along. We decided to get off at the Venetian and do the Gondola ride. By the time we walked through the shops to the ticket place, the next available ride was 9.45, but decided to go for it as we were there!

A quick saunter through really expensive shops before getting in line. We paid $15 each for a shared gondola as $30 each for a private one seemed a bit steep! The ride lasted about 10 minutes our gondolier made some joke about Disneyland for adults no-one laughed! She sang two songs and had no answer when she asked who had been to Venice for real I went on a school trip in 1972! TC was disappointed that the gondolas were motorised she kept pressing two buttons by her feet to navigate.

From here we returned to the Flamingo for a quick play and drink the Penny slots were very busy and the cocktail waitress seemed to disappear with our drinks. At midnight we decided it was more cost effective to buy my wine at the shop and retired up to the room

Loved the pictures from the Secret Garden, we loved it there and it was nice to see the dolphins playing and not having to "perform" for the crowd.
We went to Fremont Street for the first light show and ended up staying for them all as they are all different, so we spent a whole night there!
Our gondola man was great, he asked where we were from amd chatted for a little while before starting his repetoire and he was really good.
Love Rio
