In the Jungle

I love San Francisco, because you are never at a loss with what to do. A few weekends ago I went to check out the Academy of Sciences (part deux) in Golden Gate Park with my favorite person ever! We have been wanting to check out this new structure since its grand opening last year, but heard it was pretty much a zoo to get into, with the long ticket lines, waits, and packed crowds.

F is pretty much a total museum/gallery guy, so of course he wanted to see this place. I on the other hand have been hooked on the idea of a new exhibit since my dad was a member of the original AoS. I loved going into the dark Planetarium looking up at the cutouts of the building, and visions of stars twinkling on the walls, the African exhibit with its taxidermy looking lions, cheetahs, and gazelles starring back at me expressionless, and the gigantic aquarium with its 360 degree view of sea life in a hazy bright blue lagoon, all held a very special place in my heart!

p.s. I totally saw Halle Berry at the Academy this day!!!! I was kinda starstruck. She was absolutely stunning in person, so beautiful. But then again, we already knew that didn't we?
