Las Vegas, Red Rock Canyon, Lance Burton (day 3)

With another picnic lunch in hand, we set off to Red Rock Canyon, located a mere 17 miles west of Las Vegas. We hiked about 2 miles, had a picnic, and played Scrabble.

The B+B owner had told us about a really cool bar in Henderson, so we went over there for a drink. It seems that people either love or hate the Catalan architect Antoní Gaudí. I love him, so it was a real treat to have a drink at the colorful Gaudí Bar.

After that we saw Lance Burton‘s magic show, which was a fun mix of magic, dance, and cheesy acting, and then had dinner with some friends. Stephanie and her husband Keith are dancers whom we met through my French site. Stephanie is a long-time subscriber and, to thank me, about six months ago she gave us tickets to see her perform in Stomp in New York. We met her afterwards for a drink. A few weeks later, she moved to Las Vegas to participate in the new show Stomp Out Loud, so when we decided to take this trip, I called her and we all got together for dinner.

    Dear Laura, This is the first time I write to you. I too am a Francophile although it is my third language I try to master it as best I can. I study French with you for many months, on line of course, for which I am immensly grateful. You write so well and it i often amusing to read your articles, i.e. English/French. I have learned so much from you. My only wish is to speak as well as I understand. This part is quite difficult for me for now, meaning not being as self concious as I am any time I speak French. Otherwise you are a blessing in disguise so to speak. Best,
