This was a great time in the city with Nick and Sarah. Steph and I took the train and rode our bikes to the Caltrain and took that to the City. We rode our bikes along the bay, and to the pier. There was a farmer’s market around the pier and we got some food there before continuing on to the exploratorium. We got inside and Nick and I almost immediately got distracted by one of the exhibits, it was a horizontal spinning plate that you could put small plastic wheels onto. The wheels would roll along the plate and if you got it right would stay on and make interesting patterns. We stayed there longer than the girls would have liked. We then went to see many other interesting exhibits, including some geysers that were constructed to go off at 20-30 minutes depending on height, there was a room that had photo-reactive walls, there was an infrared camera to see how hot things were. It was a great time, and I’d be up for going again.
After that we went to Nick’s place and washed our hands a half dozen times because of all the exhibits that everyone had been touching. Then we went to the Ethiopian place near where he lives. The food there was amazing, and the bread they had was better than any other’s we’d had before, because it was made with the Ethiopian starch instead of wheat. It was a great time.
