When we got to Vegas, one of the first things Sam said when we were walking around our hotel room (which was off the strip) was “hey! I can see where I got mugged from here!” Gee, thanks, Sam.
In the day time, when walking around, we found some bullet shells:
Gee, thanks, Sam.
Towards the end of the trip, we heard a series of loud bangs across the parking lot near the Tropicana. It was later taped up and cops were patrolling the area:
Apparently, there was a gunfight:
Needless to say, I think someone else is in charge of our hotel reservation next time.
In the morning (~6AM), a few hours after the incident, we had cops knock on our door. Viraj answered it after waking up and the cops asked “if we heard anything last night” very obviously referring to the loud bangs. Viraj then proceeded to blatantly lie and said “no, we just saw yellow tape and police.” When we confronted him about it later, he claimed he lied because he was “scared.” Police asked him if there was anyone in the room that wasn’t supposed to be there. I wish I had woken up, looked at Viraj and said “who are you?” Maybe Viraj really is a terrorist…
