Hoover Dam in Nevada, USA

Good day folks! It seems that yesterday was April but we are all now in the month of May. It is currently raining in our place which make the weather a bit cold. My garden is happy again to have some fresh rainwater. I am not happy because the snails are also eating the leaves of my plants and flowers. I just can't stop them. I hope to go to the garden center this week to stop these snails.

Here are two pictures I took from Hoover Dam taken during my vacation to the United States two years ago. This is an amazing work of engineering and architecture! Respect to the engineers, workers, planners and supporters of this huge dam.
Hoover Dam, once known as Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada. When completed in 1936, it was both the world's largest hydroelectric power generating station and the world's largest concrete structure. It was surpassed in both these respects by the Grand Coulee Dam in 1945. It is currently the world's 38th-largest hydroelectric generating station.

The World Inside Caesars Palace Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada

I am showing for the first time My World in Las Vegas. This picture was taken by me last May 2008 during my vacation in Las Vegas. This is the Spiral escalators at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. I just love the monuments and architecture inside this hotel. That is also the reason why I spent most of my time inside this hotel dining, shopping, playing games sometimes and yes I was able to watch the Red Piano Concert of Elton John at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace. That was a very interesting show! I love it!
This blog is joining for the first time this meme. Feel free to visit My World Tuesday for more photos around the world. Special thanks to MWT Team for this fantastic meme of seeing different places and faces of the world!
