Youngest nephew Joseph is quite the teenage zoologist. My sister suggested I take him to the Kansas City Zoo at Swope Park on Wednesday last, so Joe and I waited out the rain and then spent two hours with sea lions and tigers and lorikeets and kangaroos and red pandas and Merino sheep and such. And a good time was had by all.
A lazier day. After the huge Cuban meal on Monday, I slept in on Tuesday.
Since the National Geographic headquarters and museum is two blocks away, I spent some time Tuesday at their museum, with a current exhibition of Queens of Egypt. Then I went ‘round to the Omani cultural center and spent some time talking about their culture with Omani nationals who were presenting an “Islam in Oman” exhibit. I learned some things today.
Dinner was at The Pig, a pork-centric restaurant near my hotel. The meal was fabulous!
