‘It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.’ – J. R. R. Tolkien
This is one of the dragon statues in front of Mandalay Bay in Vegas, taken on a night when we were still recovering from the night before. It truly is the city that never sleeps; a place that you can order a pizza at 3am and getting to sleep before dawn is an early night. Itâ€™s easy to get lost in the sights and sounds of a place like this where time always takes a backseat. On this night however, I ignored the bright lights and allure of the games to hunt a dragon I had seen for a fleeting moment days before.
