So after work today I headed for a favorite taco shop for some early lunch. Arriving, I noticed this recent deposit presumably made by a local who didn’t want to pay the fee at the dump. I find it so terribly unfortunate that Las Vegas with it’s beauty in the mountains, open desert and beautiful canyon country, must deal with the same lousy urban decay as any other big city in the States.
It’s a very strange juxtaposition to look south of this location and see the world famous Vegas Strip. A symbol of such extreme wealth, side by side with so much urban decay that characterizes the city of North Las Vegas. I’m not attempting to slight the city, rather just show a side of Vegas that people on holiday will likely never see. In this sense, Las Vegas is just like any other big city.
