Last weekend I, Ujwala and two of my old time friends, Daboo and Nandini met up in Vegas.

We went around, saw the fabulous (should I say decadently smashing) hotels/resorts/casinos and did a little money-wasting (it would be hard to call slot machines gambling). The Cirque Du Soleil Mystere show was really superb – perhaps the best live performance (in theater/circus area) I have seen. The crazy horse show was… well… disappointing.

We had Grand Canyon in mind when we were planning for the trip but heavy snow and bad weather made us cancel it. And Hoover Dam too… :-(

But we did go over to Death Valley National Park Area and Red Rock Canyon – was rocking!

My top five of the trip are – 1) Cirque Du Soleil Mystere show 2) Red Rock Canyon 3) Badwater Basin (and the drive to/from) 4) The fabulous Vegas Strip – special mention goes to Bellagio fountains, the Wynn resort, The Mirage Volcanic fountains 5) The view from top of Stratosphere tower

Taking this opportunity, let me showcase a few of my pictures. All my photos from the trip at arnab-o-scope on smugmug.

Daboo also took some great pictures. They are at Nandini’s picasa album)
