We got up this morning to a message from AT&T, the company we had purchased the mobile data from, to say we had used all our data. This was a bit strange as we thought we had purchased an unlimited package. We were very strict on this when the purchase was made. After several attempts, we found someone who would talk to us. All they could offer that we would have to pay more money to upgrade to the unlimited we thought we had already purchased. They were not offering any type of discount for the inconvenience of this so we said no thanks rather firmly. We shall use the Hotel Wi-Fi from now on and complain bitterly to them upon return to Tenerife. As of 27/2/2019, there has been no reply from AT&T.
After a light breakfast in the room, we had planned on using the Big Bus again, but there are still lots of people in Vegas so we decided that we would not achieve much if we did that. Instead we bought a one day pass for the Deuce which is the local public bus system up and down Las Vegas strip.
We have tickets this
morning for the Neon Museum. It is just north of Fremont Street.
We got off the bus at the Mob Museum and walked the half mile to the Neon Museum. It was really sad to see so many homeless people in this area. We felt like we wanted to help them, but from the way some of them were acting it was obvious that they wanted something that we would not be able to help them with e.g.: drugs or alcohol.
When we arrived at the museum, there was an Elvis impersonator there. This one was a lot more realistic than the one we saw by the south sign yesterday. It turned out that he was here to conduct a wedding at the museum. We found the bride and congratulated her. Later on, we found the area where they were having the wedding and could hear some of it. It was all very Elvis related. They will have some great memories of their wedding day.
The museum is not huge, but has many of the old neon signs from Las Vegas. There is a lot of history in this place.
For lunch, we took the bus
back to the house of blues in Mandalay Bay. We had another great meal there in the form of lunch. We had a main meal at lunch this time as timings tonight are not good for fitting in a main meal.
This evening, we went to see the Australian Bee Gees live. They were very authentic. They have recently moved the venue for this and the new venue is very cramped. We felt like we were on stage with the performers. This was a very enjoyable evening.
Afterwards, we stopped at the Luxor Food Court for giant strawberry thick milk shakes to finish off the day. Neither of us was really hungry.
