One of things I wanted to visit was the secret art installation- James Turrell’s Akhob in the City Center- but I needed to make a reservation a couple months in advance according to the website. Luckily, he did have another installation- Shards of Color- at the Shop at Crystals so I was able to sort of get my fix that way.
It was nice to see another Maya Lin artwork. “Silver River” is an art installation hanging above the front desk area of Aria’s lobby.
I was also impressed by Bellagio’s Botanical Gardens.
I also got to check out Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains, an art installation just outside of Vegas.
I also enjoyed finding a couple of labyrinths to walk while there.
Enlightenment by Reno Ursal
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Filipino folklore, mythology and history takes center stage in this young adult novel. The balance of power between the human race and the forgotten ones of powerful, magical creatures is threatened. It’s up to a warrior-protector to save an important key figure in this game until she realizes her true potential. But a desperate enemy and family secrets all make things extra difficult. While some parts were clunky, I really hope there will at least one more book in this series to tie everything up.
It was the perfect trip for my recent Vegas trip where the story takes place.
