M and I recently had the opportunity to go to Las Vegas for a performance at the Cosmopolitan. We usually make the trip out to perform a few times a year and we make an effort to try out different restaurants/activities each time we head out.
This year the drive out was incredibly foggy. It was fascinating watching the clouds evolve from patchy blue skies to a thick blanket that settled over the mountains so that you could not see the car in front of you as we made our way. Luckily it only lasted for a short time and we made the drive safely.
The day we arrived we spent some time in Chinatown because M wanted to buy a CD from a Taiwanese artist that happened to be available at the bookstore that was there. We then visited a delicious Thai restaurant recommended by Esther from Esther and Jacob.
We performed that night and had the opportunity to watch a bit of the concert that went on after us (Bret Michaels, Rappers Delight and Smashing Pumpkins). The next morning we made the drive back. Our room had an incredible view. It was a shame we didn’t get to spend more time in it!
Oh, and after months and months I finally made another short video where I speak Chinese. I have another lesson on iTalki this afternoon and I’m pretty excited about it!
What have you been up to lately? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.
