The wild Burros at Red Rock

If you go West on Charleston Blvd (in Las Vegas) you will get to Red Rock. A nice area where people go hiking, rock climbing and once in a while get to meet burros up close and personal.
Tatiana and Chhaya met some super cute burros, they wanted FOOD! Not water. FOOOOOOD!
And Chhaya tried to run up to one of them, the burro didn't want anything to do with Chhaya, it started screaming at the top of it's lungs, put it's ears back, showed it's big teeth and charged Chhaya, that took off with her tail between her legs.

This is LOVE!

The Horseshoe!

Well, Tatiana spent a week in Elko, at The Horseshoe.......interesting.......yes indeed.
First of all, not to offend anyone that lives in probably does have it's charm.......but Tatiana is SO happy that she does not live in Elko.
The club itself, was almost empty Monday night around 9 pm when Tatiana walked in.
There were three other girls working that night.
It stayed pretty empty until Friday when all hell broke loose. Literally. Wow! More girls showed up for work too. About five more.
One of them was an absolute knockout! VIXEN. She lives in Elko. Tatiana loves working with pretty girls, the prettier the girls - the better the club, usually.
This girl, Vixen, has it all, face, body, moves well and she was super nice. Tatiana thinks that Vixen should travel around a little. She would do well everywhere.
The other girls were......ok.
Stage was fun at The Horseshoe. Large, two poles and a mirrored wall so you can admire yourself during your dancing. And people were tipping rather well.
But there was not much going on at all during the week. Rather slow.
So, lets' move on to Friday and Saturday night.......Tatiana thinks that half of Elko must had been in there. Supposedly the place is like 80% dance club and 20% strip club on weekends. Indeed. The club has a large dance floor and people were dancing, just not lap dancing. Lol.
Tatiana felt kind of out of place, walking around in her Honey Dew's and 6' heels, while everybody else were grinding on each other at the dance floor.
And the people in Elko sure like their rap music. Oh yes!
Tatiana though that she had seen the drunkest of drunks in Anchorage at The Bush and in Williston at Heartbreakers. No. This place took first place. Easily.
Half of the club on Friday and Saturday consisted of local girls, many of them were on the very heavy side and inebriated. The guys in there were just as happy. Some of them even took naps, head down on the bar.
According to the other girls working there, this was a very bad week. Supposedly the week before had been very profitable for all. Tatiana picked the wrong week. Cowboy Poetry is not the week to be stripping in Elko, neither is biker week, according to the other girls.
Weird, Tatiana though that the cowboys would be lonely and in need of lap know "the lonely cowboy" lol........but there were not many cowboys in there at all. Tatiana did see them around Elko though......eating. There were hungry cowboys but no lonely ones.
Yes, this was an experience for sure. Tatiana is happy that she went though. She did not leave empty handed, come on now, this is Tatiana after all!
The people working at The Horseshoe were all very nice and Tatiana got to see and meet the beautiful Vixen.
If you don't try something out, you will never know!

Sitting around.......

On the road again.......

Tatiana is on her way to go and work in Elko, that is in Nevada too but way North of Vegas.
She is going there with Chhaya, of course. Tatiana has never been there before but she knows that there is one club in Elko. The Horseshoe. And this week there is something called "Cowboy Poetry" going on in Elko. It might be worth checking out. Another adventure.......stay tuned for the outcome!

Things to do while in Vegas

Tatiana really likes going to China Ranch once in a while. That is technically in California, right outside Nevada.
It's a nice drive out there, you really get a feel for the Nevada landscape.
China Ranch itself, is like an oasis in the middle of nowhere. When you are there, you HAVE to get a date shake! So yummy!
There are a few hikes you can go on. Tatiana always does the slot canyon hike.
Then she drives to Tecopa and gets into the mud bath. She recommends this little outing for everyone that has a day in Vegas when they want to do something, but don't know what......and The Strip feels like too much or boring and you just want to do something different........
Going to China Ranch is something you do in the fall, spring or winter. Summer would be too hot. This is an all day adventure, so take your time.
And don't be too scared to get into the mud bath, just do it! It's fun! You can always shower when you get home. Live a little!
Another fun thing to do is take a drive out to the small town of Rachel and Area 51. You will travel on the "Extra Terrestrial Highway". Exciting! On the way there or on the way back, stop at Ash Springs and take a dip in the hot springs.
What to do in Vegas when you want to do something in the summertime besides spend time inside, with airco?
Drive to Mount Charleston. Always cooler than Vegas. Nice hikes. Rent a cabin and spend the night. You can also go skiing there in the winter time.
Or you can drive to Boulder City, right outside of Vegas and go zip lining.
Tatiana has not done that one......yet.
So besides hotels, gambling, nightclubs, strip clubs, restaurants........etc........there is plenty to do in Vegas.

Date shake......yummy!

Chhaya getting out of the mud bath

Need to write something.....

So Christmas is over since a month much anticipation and planning, buying gifts, decorating and then it's over in a blink of an eye. Tatiana feels weird about that. It's kind of sad......
Anyways, Tatiana had her Christmas tree up until last week, then she finally put everything away, the tree and all the decorations around the house, neatly in some boxes. Until next time. Tatiana thinks that she will have a taller tree next year. A plastic tree btw. She would feel bad to use a real tree for Christmas and then just dump it when it's all over. She can always donated her current plastic tree when she gets a taller one for next year.

Today Tatiana's day consisted of some laps in the park with Chhaya. They ran two laps and did some uphill sprints. It felt great afterward. Tatiana's ass is on the larger side right now, it needs to shrink a little.
There was also a few loads of laundry done. A meet up with Mikey.
A trip to Fashion Show mall. Two new bra's. A girl can not have too much lingerie.
Tatiana saw a pair of black skinny jeans at Diesel. Maybe in a couple of weeks.......maybe.....she just remembered that she already has a pair of black skinny jeans.....there is really no need for two pairs then.
But Tatiana still needs two new pairs of stripper shoes, the old ones probably need to retire soon. Stinky. Lol.
Tatiana is going to open a museum and display her retired shoes and outfits. That's a great idea! Or maybe the Hard Rock Hotel here in town wants to display all or some chosen pieces of Tatiana's outfits?
So anyways, anyone want to buy Tatiana some new stripper shoes? It can't hurt to ask. If not......Tatiana will get them herself. Eventually.

Here is Tatiana's cute tree.
It's getting late. Time for a shower and some sleep.


Tatiana is aware of that there has not been any new blogs here lately for you to read. Poor readers of Tatiana's blog, you must be suffering so much from this!
Tatiana had to entertain visiting guests for a while. It was great, lot's of sightseeing, Vegas stuff and eating out. Tatiana probably gained 6 lbs of extra fat. Funny how eating out almost every day and no exercise makes the jeans feel a lot tighter after just a few days. When Tatiana works on a regular basis it is easier to keep thin, Tatiana usually does not eat at work. But as soon as she spends longer stretches at home, she gains some weight.
It was fun and great to be a host. Now Tatiana is by herself, with Chhaya of course, things feels quiet and weird.
So it's time to get back to the normal day to day life and there will be new blogs soon.
Meanwhile you can read all of Tatiana's old blogs. If you haven't done that, you really should!

Good day

Tatiana loves it when she has a great day full of productivity. She has cleaned, done laundry, still has to vacuum and mop the floor in the kitchen and hallway. It's nice to have a clean home.
She took care of all kinds of errands today too. Now she is about to take Chhaya to the park for a walk and a long run.
After that she is going to take a bath and wash her hair. Then do some more errands.
And later on this evening she is going to the airport to pick somebody up.
Tatiana is feeling light and elated in her heart today.
: )

It will just make me stronger!

Tatiana had a couple of exhausting days due to a person causing problems for her.
Very unfortunate. But things are moving forward and Tatiana feels somewhat better and relieved.
This was just another experience and it will only make Tatiana stronger.
The roommate is out.....

Nothing fun and crazy to write about at the moment. Days are nice and lazy. But it's time to step it up a notch and get busier, get things done.
Doing good, looking amazing.
: )

Tatiana has Bieber fever, LOL


Today my Moms friend and dog Widget passed away. So it's a very sad day. I can't even imagine how my Mom is doing, she had Widget for almost 12 years, he was her best friend. Widget was SO good and I wish I could had seen him before this happened but I didn't. But I wish.
Then I got that book Oogy today and just started reading it, the book is happy and sad because this dog went through so much abuse before he finally found a safe and loving place. So reading the book made me cry again. So I have been crying on and off today since a few hours now.
I feel so bad for my Mom, I wish I could go over and give her a hug and just be there for her, but the distance between us is big, I am in Vegas and she is in Stockholm. I love my Mom very much, though I don't tell her that, hardly ever. And I feel bad for that too. That makes me even more sad.
I think life in general is basically suffering. That's actually one of the noble truths of Buddhism. This is what it says,

"Life means suffering.
To live means to suffer, because the human nature is not perfect and neither is the world we live in. During our lifetime, we inevitably have to endure physical suffering such as pain, sickness, injury, tiredness, old age, and eventually death; and we have to endure psychological suffering like sadness, fear, frustration, disappointment, and depression. Although there are different degrees of suffering and there are also positive experiences in life that we perceive as the opposite of suffering, such as ease, comfort and happiness, life in its totality is imperfect and incomplete, because our world is subject to impermanence. This means we are never able to keep permanently what we strive for, and just as happy moments pass by, we ourselves and our loved ones will pass away one day, too."

And that is true. One day I will see every being that I love and care for pass away. Sad and difficult events happen constantly. I think the bright and happy events that we occasionally experience exist just to make life bearable to live for us. This sounds like I am a pessimist but I am not, I am a realist and in general a very happy person.
But these are the facts of life. I actually sometimes wish I could die before everybody else so I don't have to go through the pain, it would make it so much easier.
I tell Chhaya that I love her and how much she means to me several times a day.
I dreamed of Widget this morning, he was running in the snow and was happy. I think he is somewhere good. He showed me in the dream.
I hope and believe that when we die we go somewhere where we reunite with everybody we have loved, family, friends and animals. I am not sure if we need to live several lives first, to better ourselves with each life and learn until we finally can go to the big, blissful place and rest. I am not sure, but I hope.
I don't think that we just live this life, die and that's it. There's more.
Anyways, I have to go.

Here's my beautiful friend Widget, I have many wonderful memories of him. I love you Widget.

Sunset Park

Yesterday afternoon Tatiana took Chhaya to Sunset Park here in Vegas. It is a really nice park, with a long trail that you can walk or run. A lake in the middle, where some crazy people fish (Tatiana would not eat that fish) and lots of ducks that get fed by the animal lovers of this city, Tatiana included.
In the middle of the lake, there's a small island where all the ducks hang out, nobody can get to them there. On that island there are also some smaller replicas of the Easter Island statues. You know, here in Vegas we have lot's of copies of many fun places around the world, so you don't need to travel anywhere else, just to Vegas, convenient!
Sunset Park is awesome! Here is Chhaya getting acquainted with a duck.
