We ended our first day in Las Vegas by watching their famous dancing fountain show. In fact, we stayed and watched it twice. Like everything in Vegas, it’s over the top extravagant and flashy, but it’s really a very elegant and lovely show. The work involved in engineering and programming these shows must be incredible, and I tip my invisible hat (although I did buy a floppy touristy sun hat for walking) to the folks at Bellagio for creating a wonderful show. Also, shame on those tossing garbage into that water!! Tsk tsk!! Well folks, thanks for reading this far. This was just our first day in Las Vegas, and it was 12 hours of walking packed into a single, hot day. We hobbled back to our hotel with our feet covered in blisters, and mine with burns from hot asphalt. Tip: Don’t wear mega thin soles or your feet can burn on the bottoms in summer. I had to stop and buy new shoes because of this. I hope you enjoyed the journey thus far, and I hope you stick around for more. More pictures, video of the fountains, and more will be coming up in the following weeks, so stay tuned, and check out my facebook page, twitter, and Instagram.

It was a bit gritty, which made me a bit sad, but on closer look, I could see the smooth ganache on the bottom with a chocolate cakey layer that had been lightly soaked to make it very soft, and it blended well with the ganache. The raspberries added a wonderful pop of sourness to the mix, making it possible for us to “share” and eat every last bite, and their tempered chocolate had the perfect snap. The only complaint is that the sphere should have a more flat bottom, because once you eat half the dessert, it begins to fall over and lean to one side and spin. A little amusing, but also a bit inconvenient. Definitely worth a shot, and yes, we went back on another day.
