Viva Las Vegas?


Me voici dans la ville du péché! Le diction raconte que tout ce qui se passe à Vegas… reste à Vegas; je tâcherai d’être légèrement plus volubile que cela! J’ai établit mes quartiers pour les deux prochaines nuits dans un Travelodge à proximité de la fameuse Strip. Un excellent deal car la chambre est tout ce qu’il y a de parfaite mais surtout, elle est climatisée, ce qui n’est pas un luxe lorsqu’il fait 47 degrés! La piscine est non-négligeable quoique légèrement trop fréquentée par des morveux qui passent leur temps à s’arroser!

En arrivant ce matin, je suis me suis rendu en plein milieu du désert chez un concessionnaire Toyota pour faire un changement d’huile sur le Matrix. Ceci me permettra de retourner à la maison l’esprit en paix. Et comme les Américains ne font rien à moitié, j’ai pu me délecter que quelques beignes Kryspie Kream mit gratuitement à la disposition des clients qui attendent! Merci Toyota!

Premier constat en arrivant à Vegas : c’est sale. J’ai rarement vu une ville aussi malpropre que cela. Des bouteilles de bières qui traînent partout sur le sol, des journaux qui volent au vent, des sacs de plastiques; on dirait un gros dépotoir à ciel ouvert.

Deuxièmement : je ne me souvenais pas à quel point c’est désagréable de croiser des fumeurs dans les lieux publics intérieurs. Et oui, Les Vegas n’a pas adopté de politique anti-tabac alors la boucane envahie pratiquement tous les endroits publics. Légèrement dégoûtant en plus de laisser une quantité impressionnante de mégots sur le sol.

Troisièmement : l’industrie du sexe semble être légèrement développée! On retrouve des catalogues d’escortes aux coins des rues, des photos de dames en petites tenues un peu partout et ce, sous le regard intéressé de centaines d’enfants qui défilent sur le trottoir! Je comprends qu’il faut 21 ans pour entrer dans la majorité des casinos mais bon, ça surprend quand même un brin!

Par contre, il y a aussi de très belles choses à voir à Vegas. Jusqu’ici, je n’ai qu’exploré le Sud de la Strip mais j’ai fait plusieurs jolies découvertes. Mention pour le Disgracieux de Terrebonne : il est également permis de se promener, breuvage à la main!


Les casinos abordent chacun une thématique différente : au Excalibur par exemple, le monde médiéval est à l’honneur. Au New York-New-York, on a reproduit une partie du centre-ville du Big Apple avec l’Empire State Building, la Chrysler Building et même une Statue de la Liberté plus grande que nature!

Juste en face, au MGM Grand, vous serez accueilli par un lion de 45 mètres de haut! La compagnie de film Métro Goldwin Mayer débute chacun de ses long-métrage avec le lion qui rugit alors il est fort normal que le roi des animaux soit mis de l’avant. À l’intérieur, vous pourrez d’ailleurs retrouver deux spécimens vivant en captivités sous les yeux des touristes et ce, 24 heures par jour!


Mais ce qui m’a le plus impressionné jusqu’à maintenant, c’est le Luxor et sa thématique égyptienne. D’ailleurs, Luxor est le nom actuel de la ville de Thèbes, première capitale des dynasties pharaoniques. Une réplique du Sphinx nous attend à l’entrée de la Pyramide, en compagnie d’une copie de l’obélisque de la Concorde, recouvert de hiéroglyphes bien entendu. À l’intérieur, les statues d’Anubis, d’Isis et de Toutankhamon décorent ce fantastique casino.

On retrouve même un musée sur le tombeau de Toutankhamon avec quelques artefacts égyptiens. Une réplique exacte du tombeau et des multiples chambres funéraires se retrouvent en plein milieu, entouré de plusieurs objets tel le char du pharaon, des vases peints, des bijoux, etc. L’exposition, quoique très brève, vaut quand même le prix d’entrée de 10$ si vous aimez l’Égypte.

Voilà pour la journée! Ce soir, j’irai explorer un peu plus le Nord du Strip et voir ce que la ville a l’air après le coucher du soleil. Demain, je me réserve le Cesar’s Palace, Paris in Las Vegas, le Venetian et bien entendu, le Mirage où j’assisterai au spectacle Love du Cirque du Soleil. À demain!
