New Year!

After a very quick but delightful visit to Brazil where I spent Christmas with my family, I came back to the US and went straight to Miami where I spent the new years with Raffa.

We then splurged and went to Las Vegas for 4 days! What a crazy place – exaggeration is an understatement. Everything is VERY expensive and luscious.
We did quite a few cool things:
– Indy-style race car drive – cool but slow compared to what the car can do – it a 600hp car that reaches up the 220 mph – we went up to 150 mph – but what really “frustrated” me was the fact that it was an oval track! Boring to drive but was worth it just to feel the power of the car.
– Cirque du Soleil – “O” – very cool show, an amazing water filled stage with moving platforms and the “standard” body twisting/equilibrium impossibilities of the actors/dancers.
– Helicopter ride over the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon – amazing last minute trip!
Some interesting facts about Vegas:
– Fastest growing city in the US
– One new school district created every month
– 3000 new inhabitants a month
Here are the pictures:
