Well, that was interesting: Three days and nights of eating, drinking, cruising the casinos, people watching, and otherwise experiencing the weirdness that is Vegas with relatives who range in age from 22 to 80. The theme was set the first night as our crew dined at "Big Kahunas" in Treasure Island while my sister, niece, and two cousins polished off drinks of the same name before moving on to the long-necked margaritas on The Strip. It's so entertaining to watch people get blitzed. Everyone kind of did their own thing during the day; I was the only geek opting for Bodies - the Exhibition. (Yeah, we WERE in Vegas, but it's not what it sounds like!) The above photo is of part of the the lighted ceiling show of Fremont Street--it's a runner! Speaking of which... I did squeeze in two rather pathetic runs, one of ~7 miles up and down The Strip, the other only ~5 miles in Red Rock Canyon, a nice escape from the craziness nonetheless. It's good to be home... I'm exhausted.
