Since I left for vacation last Tuesday, I have not posted here and I'm sure that some of you were thinking and praying for me.

I can tell you that I am safe and OK, and I can also tell you that I had a good time in Las Vegas.

The highlight of the trip was seeing Cirque du Soleil in person for the first time.  The show was called Ka.  It is about the separation of two royal twins after their parents were killed.  It combines acrobatics, storytelling, and a spectacular set.

Ka has a different tone from the Blue Man Group, which I saw on two previous visits to Vegas.  Ka was the better show, but not by much.  The shows are clearly different from each other in tone; Blue Man is whimsical and irreverent, while Ka is serious.

Some parts of the trip were as you would expect: money gambled and lost in the casinos, two buffet meals, and the chance to watch the baseball playoffs in the sports book.  On the other hand, there were some quirks: watching a presidential debate in our room (parents accompanied me) and seeing zoo displays of lions and sharks.

I was gone from Tuesday night to Friday morning.

Again, thanks for your concern about me during the last week.

I'm glad to hear you had a great vacation in Vegas, Desmond!  Do you have any pictures to share?   I'm sure we'd all enjoy seeing them.

Sounds like a fun trip.  I'll be heading out to Vegas in about a month, a product the company I work for is having a conference out there and geez what a better way to go to Vegas then on the company dime.

Sorry, Cheryl.  I don't even own a camera.  And I didn't even think of renting one. Embarrassed
