Show trip route
Bit of a sleep in and down to the buffet breakfast. We go for breaky only but a lot of septics go for the all you can eat all day and go hard at it. Bacon and Eggs and a pint of Bud not uncommon at 9am. We decide to see a show tonight and Cirque du Soleil Mystere is our pick. Good discount seats available for Treasure Island, order vouchers at our hotel.
We go for a walk down the strip for a gander and to pick up our show tickets and get good seats. Only 41 deg today but a dry heat, out of the sun not too bad. Regulary in the 40s here and close to 30 at night in summer. Gelati stop on way lifts melting young spirits.
Get our tix and walk through Ceasers Palace to the Bellagio. Looks like a Sherman kind of place so lunch at Cafe Bellagio it is
Taxi down to MGM Grand to see the Lions (a couple of real ones in a habitat set up in the foyer. Helpful taxi driver tells the girls about the M&M World (4 floors!) just before MGM so we get out there. So many colours, paraphernalia, clothes, a NASCAR and anything you could possibly imagine in the forms of M&M marketing. Lions were impressive also. Perspex tunnel walk has the lions right overhead.
Cab back to Treasure Isalnd and a Starbucks smoothie before the show. Amazing show, acrobats, drums, gymnastics, comedy characters. Two acrobats and the arm and leg lifts from all angles the highlight for me. Back to Circus Circus, Oldie and youngies in bed and middlies get downstairs for a bit of gambling. Slots and Blackjack. Watched an interesting game of Let-it-Ride, must learn more of that one. No time for any hold'em though.
