Las Vegas is certainly a place of contrast. I struggled with it all some of the time.

Our waiter at Shibuya, Jeffrey, was inspiring in his care of our experience and delightful in expressing his love of living in Las Vegas. The Cirque du Soleil experience always blows my mind (and the lovely folk seating us at Kà were so much fun). Here are some other bright moments:
