San Diego pre-show
San Diego pre-show - Change of climate. Arrive at the hotel featured in "Some Like it Hot", sea air, green grass - a world away from Vegas.
Leaving Las Vegas. Arriving in San Diego at the Hotel Del Coronado. This is the hotel thatís in the Marilyn Monroe movie "Some Like It Hot" and I can't tell you how fantastic it feels to be here. When we flew in today, we were coming through town looking at everything with new eyes. After a month in Las Vegas, it seemed so weird to see so much stuff that's real and so many buildings that aren't casinos. The grass is so soft and springy, the sunshine gentle. After so long in the desert, the sea air is intoxicating - I may soon be able to persuade the two Bedouin families to move out of my nose.
