"There is perhaps no city in the world more renowned for its neon than Las Vegas. But as times change, and as casinos and hotels come and go, many of Vegas' classic neon signs are in danger of disappearing.
The Las Vegas Neon Museum is working to collect and restore the city's old signage, much of which is now on display in the museum's so-called Boneyard. Take a journey through the city's past with historian Michael Green and the museum's Danielle Kelly."

New Orleans - My Journey Contest Video for Lonely Planet - UPDATED
"Lonely Planet author Tom Downs loves New Orleans' soulful, saucy and eccentric nature. Located as far South as geographically possible in the USA, it's only mildly American in flavour, more a gumbo of French, Carribbean and African American. Tourists might flock to Bourbon Street's non-stop carnival but the whole city really knows how to have a great time."
Marielle Bianchi (Ac. Toulouse) s'est "servie (de la video avec une classe de 3ème) en compréhension orale comme introduction à la ville dans le cadre d'une immense séquence sur la Louisiane." Elle est "partie de l'unité 4 de 'Connect'.
Elle a rédigé le script (auquel elle a ajouté du vocabulaire) et l'a fait corriger par Jenny Léger (de eteach).
