So, Vegas. I enjoyed Vegas  DEC 10 2001

So, Vegas. I enjoyed Vegas more than I thought I would, and not in a kitschy sort of way either. I enjoyed Vegas straight up...for the most part (exceptions were the Celine Dion-accompanied Fountains of Bellagio display and a Ferrari painted by Christian Riese Lassen...both so horribly wrong and amusing at the same time).

The only bad thing about the trip was forgetting to bring my camera (stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid...). I missed so many great photos, especially at The Valley of Fire State Park, one of the most picturesque places I've ever been to. Next time for sure...I just had my camera surgically grafted to my right hand, so I'll never never never never forget the damn thing again.

I'm not particularly interested in motorcycles, but The Art of the Motorcycle exhibition at the Guggenheim in Las Vegas was quite good, displaying steam-powered bicycles on up to the modern day crotch rockets.
