Science Museum in the City - Listening Vessels at the Exploratorium (and Pause on Market Street)

Exploratorium - Embarcadero StThe Exploratorium re-opened on Embarcadero St last year but I only went for the first time on Monday which was the President's Day holiday.  Huge mistake! The place was a zoo.

I was able to see a couple of exhibits before I waved the white flag and surrendered to the kids and their parents inundating the place that day. As a consolation, I saw the Listening Vessel which is very similar to a public exhibit on Market St. called Pause.

Breakfast in the City - La Boulange de Sutter

La Boulange - Sutter StIt was Friday. Mijo, though late, decided to go to the office. He thought he'd be more productive in the office than working from home.  I, on the otherhand, was working from home.  What's more productive than working and doing laundry during breaks, I thought to myself.

I have an appointment in the morning so we decided to have a sit down breakfast. We haven't had a slow sit down breakfast on a Friday in a long while. There we were. Talking, eating slow and sharing plates amid the busy downtown crowd. It was like a scene from a romantic movie.

Cirque in the City - Amaluña by Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil - AmalunaI first saw a brief 15 minute performance of Cirque du Soleil's Amaluña when a couple of Cirque performers visited our company headquarters in December. It was short but it was a good preview of the story. A love story.

Mijo and I found tickets on the last week of their performance in San Francisco. As always, we loved it. Like any Cirque show, it was suspenseful, entertaining and fun.
