Papa went to Las Vegas for The 2007 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (International Conference on Image Processing, Computer Vision, and Pattern Recognition IPCV ’07) at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino from 24-30th June 2007. Just at the Strip which is Las Vegas famous for casinos. Very nice place even though in the middle of Mojave Desert. The temperature was very hot (approx. 105F and humidity < 5%). Met many new friends at the same research area.
The flight was NRT(narita)-LAX(los angeles)-LAS(las vegas). It was the first time had jet lag (even though had been to europe before but this time was worst) and felt very sleepy just before my presentation. Hehehe
Las Vegas (often abbreviated as Vegas) is the most populous city in the state of Nevada, United States, the seat of Clark County, and an internationally known vacation, shopping, entertainment, and gambling destination. It was established in 1905 and officially became a city in 1911. With the growth that followed, Vegas became the largest U.S. city founded in the 20th century (a distinction Chicago held for the 19th century).
The name Las Vegas is often applied to the unincorporated areas of Clark County that surround the city, especially the resort areas on and near the Las Vegas Strip. This 4½ mi (7.2 km) stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard is mostly outside the Las Vegas city limits, in the unincorporated towns of Paradise and Winchester.
The center of gambling in the United States, Las Vegas is marketed as The Entertainment Capital of the World and is famous for its massive, lavish casino resorts. It is also commonly known as Sin City, due to the popularity of legalized gambling, availability of alcoholic beverages at any time (as is true throughout Nevada), and various forms and degrees of adult entertainment. Although prostitution is legal in most of Nevada, it is not legal in Clark County. The city’s glamorous image has made it a popular setting for films and television programs.
