Show trip route
Where I stayed
We got into the car, moved out of the parking slot, joined a queue for the exit and just sat still and sat and sat and …………
half. The Show was on at The Mirage and we rushed in, told the Ushers of our dilemma and they fixed it – changed our tickets to the 9.30 performance – done. We were really pleased. Now, this meant there was time to spare so, the ‘boys’ disappeared to the Bar of course and Patti taught me a thing or two about gambling. We only played a thing called Kino and the slot machines, but I learned a lot more than I knew before, which was nothing! I didn’t gamble much and what I did I lost, but I had fun.
The Show was something neither of us will ever forget – yes THAT good. What interpretation, what skill , what timing, what costumes and all to Beatles music in British settings – truly, truly fab as the Beatles might have said. All of this meant that we arrived back at Entrada at 3am, but it was worth it.
Over the next days we visited Patti’s daughter and her lovely family, (she has twin daughters of 12 who love anything English especially One Direction which I felt a little ignorant of, but tried
my best!), visited Kayenta a little Town of Artists and Galleries in the middle of the red rock, went gambling a second time (still lost!) and still had time to sample the swimming pool and hot tubs. It was a great time. On our last day together, we travelled to Grafton, a little ‘ghost’ Town where the pioneers just couldn’t make it and where the ‘Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head’ scene was shot for the film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid – shame we didn’t have our bikes there to reenact – OK perhaps not!
