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.
