Bellagio show is amazing; in other news, I am amazed by water, lights and music.
This was a definite highlight of my Vegas trip. Outside the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, from 8:00 until midnight, is a musical fountain and draws hundreds of people to the shore of the lake every fifteen minutes. I don’t know why it is that I can be so mesmerized by lights and water set to the tune of Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, almost emotional even. Perhaps it was the fact that I was extremely tired after a long day of flying and then wandering Las Vegas all day. Perhaps I am just amazed by simple things. I know, the kind of computer programming that must be required to pull this off, the ridiculous time and money that must have gone into constructing this, but the result is something simple – lights and water and music. And I stand amazed.
