I had hoped to update my blog last week, but Blogger was giving me problems. I had a very busy 9 and 1/2 days in the States that included many meals with family and friends, a pedicure, yoga classes (including one with Bryan Kest!), fitness evaluation, rock climbing, swimming, and shopping as a one-woman import-export machine for my Taiwan-based friends hungering for some American goods--all interspersed between a quick trip up to San Francisco and my Pi Reunion in Vegas. In Vegas, I saw Cirque du Soleil's O!, which was a simply amazing production, caught up with classmates at the V bar, had a enormous creme brulee dessert at our class banquet at the Venetian's Grand Lux Cafe, and then partied with them at Studio 54. While in the States, I ate raw cuisine (my dish was called 'Harem in the Raw' - falafel balls, zucchini hummus, quinoa taboule, and olives served with tahini on a purple cabbage 'pita') at Juliano's Raw, yummy plaintain empanadas and poblano quesadillas at the Too Hot Tamales' Border Grill, great seafood at Pesce, and a divine raspberry-rhubarb pie that I picked up at Whole Foods.
