We spent last night in Vegas. Today, before setting up the show, we visited a little more of the strip. One of the most amazing shopping and entertainment areas I've ever seen is The Forum at Caesar's Palace. This is a multi-level place that's HUGE (as with most things in Vegas)! It's designed to appear as if you're outdoors, walking down a Roman street at night. All of the decor inside has the right look:
We explored the whole place and ate at Planet Hollywood inside the giant complex. Even the escalators are themed- have you ever seen an escalator that curves as it goes up? Neither had I! If you're ever in Vegas, you have to visit the Forum!
Next door to Caesar's is the Mirage. It's the hotel where renowned Illusionists Siegfried and Roy performed. Outside, there's a huge stone monument to the famous duo:
I also found this sign humorous that was in an elevator on the strip:
It was time to set up the show. We headed to the church and met with Pastor Russel Marsh. It's funny, sometimes the biggest crowds can be just "okay" as to their responsiveness, while a small crowd can be dynamite. This was a smaller crowd, but they sure had enough energy for a group twelve times their size!
We're staying a second night here in Vegas, since our show isn't far away. It's in California, which is the final show in the lower 48 states! Only 2 left! This tour has flown by so fast that it's crazy, but I suspected this would be the case. When you do something for 50 consecutive days and never take a day off, it really does go fast. We've had an amazing time- and Hawaii is yet to come!
