One thing you can't help but notice in Vegas is the pursuit. Pursuit of what? Well, I'm not sure. I don't even think the people pursuing it know what it is that they are chasing. But they chase it none the less. Whether it was alcohol, gambling, sex, or entertainment everyone seemed to be in pursuit.
