Inauguration of Barack Obama And Vegas Strip

06 Feb 2009

That night Las Vegas has not been like always. The slot machines stopped spinning and the dealers with players were silent watching the inauguration of Barack Obama instead of the ESPN. The promotional video screens were showing the swearing of Barack Obama as the 44th president.

There was not a single person nor turist nor staff member that missed the chance to watch this historical moment live.

Though as soon as the swearing was over everybody turned back to routine jobs and to gambling, there is nothing that would take away that hope that united all people at Vegas Strip.

TV monitors were switched back to ESPN from CNN, dealers continued their jobs and the music sounded again with a slightly new motif, a motif of hope and inspiration.
