Day 27! Las Vegas

It’s busier here today, the ‘weekenders’ have arrived ………. the young, beautiful and unattached!!!!

It’s a cooler day, only in the 90’s, there’s a breeze but it’s not until you come indoors you realise just how hot the sun still is. Shade and lots of suncream still required! We don’t want to come home looking like a couple of leather chamois!!

After time round the pool and food, we went back to the Aria Cafe again,

Si at the Aria Cafe

we went to see Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil. They describe the show as a spirited voyage through an abandoned theater where an extraordinary circus comes back to life. Populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats, Zarkana is a visual vortex set in a twisted acrobatic fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to a true celebration. Zarkana™ is a quintessential Cirque du Soleil spectacular featuring an international cast of 70 world class acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, high wire and trapeze artists.

It was great and probably the best Cirque du Soleil show we’ve seen. We had fantastic seats and were very close to the stage. There were times when our hearts were in our mouths. One trapeze artist missed his partner’s hands and fell but luckily they had a safety net!!

Tomorrow is our last full day so I will need to start sorting out the suitcases. We are overweight (the cases that is, not us!!) so excess baggage will probably have to be paid!!

    • Thanks Ann. Just trying to drag myself out of bed to get round the pool. Si’s already gone to save the beds. See, things are just the same here in Vegas!! See you soon!

  1. Malcolm and Mary – Malcolm worked for LWT. Mary worked for TRL. They live near Camberley in Surrey and did achieve their life long ambition to visit New Zealand. They have two daughters Laura and Hannah and two grandchildren Zach & Safi. Having done the big trip they then went to Canada, which was amazing. Scroll down it’s all here. They have visited Venice that they both so fell in love with in 2009 again. And recently returned to Lefkada for one week in glorious sunshine. Where next? Well, Canada is calling again in 2019; this time including Alaska. So stay tuned if you enjoy the ups and downs of travelling.

    Great to see Max Wall alive and still earning a couple of bob! What a fabulous way to end the trip! I’ll bet Simon is really sorry to have missed the AGM. (cough,cough) almost as spectacular!!! The boys and girls voted against expanding the club, so we stay as we are. Huge thunderstorm here last night, can’t remember the last time we had such a massive one. Bright, bright, bright sky’s and the noise was deafening. Have a great last day and travel safe.

    • Thanks Malcolm. Yes, ‘Max Wall’ was great. Simon did comment that he was sorry not to be at the AGM!! Gosh, hope those thunderstorms are all gone for us flying into Gatwick. I hear next week’s weather is supposed to be good, hope so. We’ve only seen one little drop of rain in a month!

  2. HA HA! I love that your bags are overweight and not yourselves! Glad the show was wonderful! I would love to see one myself someday. Happy travels….you sure will miss the Aria Cafe!

    • Thanks Nat. We haven’t weighed ourselves yet but I had lost weight the last time I was on the scales. Yes, we will the dining but we know we will return!
