Great architecture indeed. Vegas’ Strip is one giant gambling den. I avoid the Strip…
I was reading that 84 Charring Cross Road (historic old book shop and the subject of a film + book) is now a McDonalds. Our (UK) government does protect many historic buildings but not all. One of my biggest moans (I have plenty!!!) is that historic aircraft are not protected in the way historic buildings are. Enthusiasts look after our old aircraft, trains and so on but the Government does not enough to look after our industrial heritage. I hate to see wonderful old aircraft just rotting away. I feel so much better now I’ve had a good moan!!
They should be protected. A McDonalds? Yuck. We have Jack In The Box too, better than Deezers.
I don’t think we have Jack in the Box or Deezers in the UK or Holland yet. Something to look forward to?
What we do have is this: https://photonomad.co.uk/2016/09/04/the-burger-bitch/
I keep meaning to visit this place when I am in Amsterdam. I think I will have to just to get the photographs!
