Back at the hotel we took it easy for the afternoon. Gambled, had a few drinks, enjoyed what was left of our time in Vegas, then made our way to the Bellagio Hotel for a Cirque du Soleil show, “O”. Putting aside the drunken guy who kicked me and the woman who kept flinging her long dreadlocks in my face, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.
We were up, packed and ready to go before dawn, as we had a long day’s drive back through the desert and up through the mountains toward our next destination.
Another long drive and we finally arrived in Chicago at 11pm. 2 things we learned during that day’s travels. Finding change for tolls can get aggravating, and long drives through Iowa and Illinois will render 2 travelers insane. Over exhaustion and never ending roads had us laughing like hyenas at absolutely nothing. A good night sleep in one of the nicest rooms we had yet took care of our sanity.

The photo op with Misha was a little disappointing, I mean, I expected to be rushed through the session, but the factory assembly line they created was ridiculous. We barely got 5 seconds with the guy, and I don’t even know if my eyes were open during the picture, hell did I even have the time to turn my head to look at the camera? The woman at the door almost jumped me for taking the time to say thank you before moving toward the door and this lovely 5 second experience cost us 75 bucks. In my opinion, they should sell less photo op tickets and give everyone at least 30 seconds to say hi to the actors before getting thrown out the door.
