Stars consider jumping

We have now arrived in Vegas and emerged from a short sleep after a full day and late night. It was a bumpy flight up from Dallas. We were in the last row seated behind a group of Vegas school girls returning after taking on their Dallas counterparts in some sort of sporting event. Princesses to a tee. Very entertaining giggles and squeals.

Finally hit the sheets at 2am after traversing the strip and seeing Cirque du Soleil at the Mirage in their Beatles performance. Early on we ascended the Stratosphere Tower to get the general lie of the land and see the various rides atop this 380 m structure.

Allthego!

Allthego!

Star jump, not this time around, there would be no one to take the picture!

You can jump from  level 108 which is about 280 m up. Now one of the Stars gave this some consideration,. but only for a very short period of time. The other Star faded at the thought. Quite  a few took the plunge while we were there and it looked pretty straight forward. There were a few other rides that took you out over the edge, which seemed pretty tame. R went to the top open air deck to take in the views whilst L settled for a chardonnay in the bar.
