Were not in Kansas anymore Toto!

No comments:
So, we left SLC and touched down in Las Vegas. Didn't even leave the terminal before we saw people using poker machines - right there in the airport.

It was the first of many things that made me shake my head in disbelief.

Checked into our accommodation.
Pretty cool. Another airbnb find.

That night, we were seeing our first show - The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage.
It was SPECTACULAR. So many things to look at. The music was amazing (original Beatles songs), the staging was fantastic, costumes fantastic. My fave song was Lucy in the Sky of Diamonds. The aerial work was just beautiful. Here is a link to a clip from you-tube

Was an awesome show.

Across the road, we went to the Venetian. I've seen photos of this before, but its nothing until you see it in real life.
This is INSIDE a shopping centre.

Next day, we went to the Grand Canyon ....... Via HELICOPTER. We had never been on a helicopter before. I was ...... Terrified for about ten seconds. Then, I was fine.
On board with my honey.

Best view of the Las Vegas strip.

We went to the glass bottomed skywalk. We couldn't take anything onto it (including cameras). We had a pic taken by the operators, and it was printed for us.

An awesome experience.

We spent the rest of the day exploring the strip.
The Luxor - an Egyptian themed hotel resort. It has an enormous pyramid and sphinx. Totally tack!

New York New York. 

M and M museum - this one was for you Mark and Melanie.

At Vdara - an AWESOME timber sculpture.

Lots of real floral arrangements around. This one was in Aria.

Not France, Las Vegas.

In Bellagio. Just beautiful. Inspired Kylie to hang her parasol from Japan upside down from the ceiling. That is, if I didn't get rid of it in the last cull.

Time for another show.
This is playing at Mandalay Bay. 

Another AMZAING show. So immersive. When it snowed, it snowed inside the theatre The bungee jumpers bunged basically above our hearts. The dancers were right in with the audience. Audience photos were up on the screen.

Another day, another Cirque show - 'O' at the Bellagio. This one was not planned, but there were tix still available. Have you seen O? It was amazing. There is a pool in the show. It was just amazing. 

Of course, after the show, time for another amazing show - the fountain.
Was spectacular.

Went to meeting on Las Vegas. Check out this incognito photo I took.
The brother handling the microphones is 11. He was such an awesome young brother. Great to meet you Colby.

Last day in town - time for a Gondola ride, wax museum and lunch. Thanks Gayle!
Is that how they do the lean?

Time to leave - there are thousands (probably literally) or other pics to show you.....
We fly to New York overnight and our next adventure begins. Thanks for reading.
