Vegas Convention Photo Album -- Page Six
There's no place like home

RHPS Viva Las Vegas!! [ Page One | Page Two | Page Three | Page Four | Page Five | Page Six ]

Sunday night, we saw Cirque du Soleil at the Mirage. Very impressive; but again, I wasn't able to take any photos. But during the day on Sunday:

 
The inside of the Luxor. Everything in Vegas is done to such an extreme, and on such a large scale...

 
Several times a day, in front of Treasure Island, there's a naval battle re-enactment in the harbor...

Pirates are loading their booty about their ship when a British warship finds them... There is a brief battle with a lot of explosions, fire, and people being hurled into the water...

But the pirates win (of course, this is Vegas) and the British captain goes down with his ship... (He has an air tank, because he's standing on the deck waving when the ship comes back up five minutes later to get in position for the next show!)

Monday night, we flew out from the Vegas airport. We weren't surprised to see the airport full of slot machines, or to see a Margarita bar at the back of the Taco Bell in the airport; but the winner of the "We're not in Kansas anymore" prize was the special receptacle for used needles in the men's room...

We arrived back at BWI airport Tuesday morning, and I went straight in to work. Everyone else had been smart enough to take that day off from work, too...
