Author David Stanley has written numerous travel guidebooks on the South Pacific including the book, "Moon Tahiti" covering the French Polynesian islands.

David, I am in France right now and have just returned to Paris after touring the battlefields of WWI. It was heartwrenching.

Come an hour before sunset and stay until dark to see Vegas day and night from this excellent vantage point near the heart of The Strip. You`ll get an excellent view of the Fountains of Bellagio show with the sunset lighting up the mountains surrounding the city. It`s worth it if you`re not in a big hurry and are prepared to spend a little time up there. Maybe come toward the end of your stay so you`ll have a better idea what you`re seeing. Enjoy!

Sadly, the skins of countless small animals are marketed to tourists in the old city of Khiva, Uzbekistan. There's no excuse for animal abuse.
