Travel: Teotihuacan, City of Water, City of Fire exhibit de Young Museum, San Francisco

Just a quick update to all before we zip off to Greece and beyond tomorrow.

We had just enough time this week for lunch with our long time friend Kathleen Granderson.  Here’s a great shot of the City from the Alameda shore.

We also had just enough time to squeeze in a look at the Teotihuacan exhibit from Mexico at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park.  It is an exceptional collection dating back to over 2000 years old and never seen before outside Mexico.  The exhibit is showing through February 11, 2018.

This collection was discovered in 2003 in a long tunnel under one of the old pyramids outside Mexico City.
