Start at -- or return to -- the beginning

About an hour after the drive back to Phoenix from Vegas:
Vegas-style fun with Simiana at The Jungle

By day (and most nights), a mild-mannered strip club, The Jungle would usually be verboten for shutterbuggery.

And you would therefore be denied fine photosnaps of monkey bellydancing in front of The Jungle's giant tiki voodoo skull.

But lucky you -- on the night in question, The Jungle was set aside for other arts...

...such as Kung-fu Monkey Style bellydance...

...and death-defying acts of simian aerialism.

And is it possible to drink in enough of that stage?

A perfect setting for monkey robot bellydance maneuvers, the likes of which are not seen in the finest Vegas showrooms.
