Just got back from visiting my dear friend Kelley in Las Vegas. We have been best friends since fifth grade...and without going into how old we are, that's a l-o-o-o-n-g time.
That's me on the left, Kelley on the right.
I don't have a single picture of the Strip to show you. Frankly, I was kind of appalled by it. It is pretty--in a way--but I just kept thinking that only in America could there exist this kind of excess, extravagance and over-indulgence. Still, I think everyone should see it at least once.
Kelley treated me to LOVE, the Cirque du Soleil show set to the music of the Beatles. I have to admit that when the show first started I thought 'I'm not going to like this.' But it just got better and better (and more and more trippy) as it went on and I wound up absolutely loving it. And of course, the music was amazing. There is a little video clip on their website that hints at how cool the show is. If you ever go to Las Vegas, I highly recommend it.

Now I ask you, how can the Vegas strip compete with this?
