The afternoon was spent pretty much people watching at the pool as the Hard Rock is known for their multiple, wild pools, it was a little insane. We definitely felt like we were in Vegas as people were crazy and all over the place by the time we got to the pool at about 4. It was hysterical to observe but after about an hour we got a little sick of the scene and headed up to get ready for the night.

We were then going to try and go to the Bellagio and get a drink before the show we were going to but it was so packed we just walked in and walked out. Just as well as we went on over to Caesar's Palace where Absinthe, the show we were seeing, was located. We hung out in the beer garden before and then headed into the show, let's just say it was very Vegas. We had wanted to go to Cirque du Soleil O show but we didn't get tickets in time. Absinthe was very entertaining, it was a teeny venue inside a tent and there were all kinds of acrobats doing neat tricks. My personal favorite was two performers on roller skates skating around on this small drum type thing and doing all kinds of really cool tricks. It was a neat show all in all but some parts were a little too vulgar for me.

All in all Vegas was lots of fun and we had some new and different experiences. I have to say I don't think I would come back unless I was with a big group. It was a little too commerical-esque for me and by the end I was pretty ready to head to the Grand Canyon...more to come on that trip soon!
