For our first anniversary, my husband and I went to San Diego, a drive of about an hour and a half from our home. We’ve been there before. We spent the first day in Balboa Park walking around and touring museums. The first museum we went to is called the Museum of Man, which specializes in anthropology, both physical and cultural. (How romantic, many readers may be thinking. It’s a fantastic place to play. And play we did.) It was converted from an old church. Some of the exhibits include a history of beer making, a kiddie exhibit on monsters (don’t look under the bed!), a Mayan stele, a history of evolution and an area dedicated to Native peoples, particularly those of North America. In a separate building across the street was an exhibit on the history of cannibalism. It was billed as something designed to clear up misconceptions but I found it, frankly, confusing. This picture is of me sticking my hand into a black hole. Actually, this is just a convincing painting on the wall and I pulled my sleeve over my hand. San Diego Museum of Man:

Thanks. Glad you enjoy it. I was silly, of course, but we had fun.

@msiduri We're never too old to be silly in my opinion

@jaboUK Oh, dear, I hope not. Things will look really grim then.

It looks like you're actually sticking your hand in. Sounds like a pretty cool place.

It was a lot of fun. The black hole painting was pretty convincing. I had to try. The pic actually came out better than I thought it would.
