|Everyone should see Bodies|
Last Monday I took off for Las Vegas to do research for a new Granny Apples mystery and to get a little R&R. It's a 4-1/2 hr drive from my house and I spent the time going and coming listening to A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore. It's hysterical and the hours flew by.
|KA - Took my breath away|
As I said, my trip was also to do research for a new book. One day I got in my car and traveled throughout the area, taking in the communities around Las Vegas that could be taken for any suburb any where. I also visited the Venetian Hotel (my favorite to hang out at), which will be included in the book, and traversed Las Vegas Blvd. from the strip to downtown looking for sites to place certain scenes. I found them!
|Inside the Atomic Museum|
I took in the Atomic Museum (will also be in the book), Bodies Exhibition and Titanic Exhibit (both fabulous). And what's Vegas without shows?! I saw Cirque du Soleil's KA and Menopause - the Musical (again, both great).
Thanksgiving night I was back home. The rest of the week, I relaxed, did some housework and wrote and wrote and wrote. All in all, it was a very successful vacation.
