Reno/Tahoe (NV, USA)

Last year I popped over to the United Stated for 6 weeks.

I spent over half my time in the city of Reno Nevada, and most of the other time I was at lake Tahoe in Nevada and California.


Arriving in Reno...


Home sweet home, N.Virginia Street Reno


From the back of the house during the day...


Night


Dunno


1st day of work


Camped on the beach




The Rodeo came into town




On the way there I took this shot


Me




Next day I saw David Spade at the Sparks Nugget Casino


I'm in this at the bottom of the clowns lollypop thing






Holding up my local towns paper


After a massive $15 win at blackjack we celebrated with a 1lb 'Awful Awful' Burger.


The red dot indicate where I spent my time working, on the left in Nevada...on the right in California...if you look at the dot on the right it's right next to the lake Tahoe forest fire.

Nice thread. Never heard of Reno before.
Looks like a nice but rather boring city to me.
But the natural setting with the lake and mountains is

Reno is a casino city. It is famous for that mainly.
There's an REM song called "All the way to Reno"
Also sister act 2 was set there and the Kingpin movie finale.

I love Lake Tahoe. I visited South Lake Tahoe this summer because my cousin got married there, and it was so beautiful. I have a lot of pictures from there, maybe soon I will get around to posting them.

Isn't Reno the largest city in the US to have legal brothels?

Are they actually legal in the city limits? I thought they were all on the outskirts.
