The Vegas strip,
as viewed from the Stratosphere

Sure was warmer in Las Vegas!
What? Oh yeah… in case you didn’t see it on the book of faces, I was in Vegas again over US Thanksgiving. Ha. This time with my Joyjoy, and Nkosi and Ross and Tarne and, for a day, with Kim and Steve. Mayur was notably MIA. No, not her.

For you gearheads, here’s some engineering info on this and its sister ride, X Scream: click [PDF, 212k].
