As Nikolas had always said he wanted to go there, I thought we would check out some of the great shows as well.  The first night, we got front row seats for the Lance Burton Magic Show.  It was awesome, some of the tricks, still has me stunned!

The most jaw dropping show was Cirque de Soleil "O"! How do they change the stage from a pool to a dry stage within seconds, is beyond me!  It was a spectacular show and Nik really enjoyed it!

Las Vegas is definitely an adult destination.  After watching "The Hangover", I wondered how many stories were being created that night!  There were a lot of people standing on the strip handing out cards for adult shows!  These cards of half naked women were all of the sidewalk.   Trying to explain the “adult” side of Vegas only brought out more questions.

We could have definitely skipped Vegas as Nik had higher expectations and I think was a little disappointed.  The shows were expensive and the town is artificial and I realized by the time we got to Fiji what really makes Nik happy…..the beach and water!


When we got in to Las Vegas, we went to our hotel: the Monte Carlo.   At 7:00pm we went to a Magic show.  It was amazing how he did his tricks.   I bought a magic trick, that I spent and a lot time practicing .

After the show, I went on the New York New York rollercoaster ride but I didn’t like it. Outside of the hotel, there were some very scary people dress’s up in Halloween costume and very scary make up.

The next night, we went to Cirque De Soilel “O” .  It was jaw dropping to see how they changed the stage into water and then make it completely dry.  It was a great show.

Glad you liked the "o" show my thoughts exactly it was wonderful.
Nik we also did the roller coaster and I hated it i came of with a head ache from all the bashing it got and then my shoulders had bruisers from being bounced up and down on the harness.
