Venice Real and Fake

They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery. My theme for this weeks photos will be real and fake. The most fake city I think I have ever been to is Las Vegas. The different hotels and casinos are surreal but in a lot of ways entertaining. You can travel from Egypt to New York to Paris to Venice to Ancient Rome while driving down the strip in Las Vegas. I do not think that any of these imitations hold a candle to the real thing except for maybe ancient Rome. The only way I would have been able to visit the real Caesars Palace in ancient Rome would have been as a servant.

  1. You are absolutely right Keith. Las Vegas is as fake as they get second to Orlando's Disney World! Why anynone would waste their hard earned money to go there is beyond me. Perhaps they have too much money in the first place? Have a great day! :-)

    1. When I did this weeks post I did not think of Disneyland but Neushwanstein Castle in Germany and Disneyland/World would have been a good addition.
