...nearing the end. I will show a few photos of my pedicab rides around the city, so you can see what it is like if you have never been.

Across from my hotel, the Public Library donated to the people from Andrew Carnegie. It is now closed, sadly, but the building is beautiful.

Two different pedicab drivers. I had a nice blanket and padded seat with a shade cover, all fun.

Outside of the back entrance, on the mall, are pedicab drivers lined up. It's a great way to see the city to get back to your hotel.

Wow! Very impressive minerals, and you have done a nice job showing so many. I like the signs describing the uses of the minerals. And I love the Norway Zircon in IMG_3115.jpg.

Gail, beautiful and instructive story, it is as if he had made the visit to the museum from Barcelona.

Thank you very much.

Enrique.
