The last couple of days have been awful. Bad case of food poisoning, something I would not wish on anyone. But it was a good chance to start kickstart a diet and I have been getting the chance to sleep.
In contrast, last weekend was great. On Saturday, Bob and I went down to balboa park. It was great fun. Below are a few pictures from the expedition. We had a great lunch at the Prado, a fancy restaurant in the middle of the park. Got a nice picture of Bob that I would like to turn into a portrait. In the middle of the park were various groups promoting their religious views — the Hare Krishna’s were dancing, the evangelical’s were telling us that we were doomed unless we accepted their view, and the agnostics were telling everyone there is no hell. Thought about having my fortune read with tarot cards, but went to look at the spanish art village instead were I bought Kate some earrings as a birthday present.
Walking back towards the zoo, I made the comment to Bob “Let’s go to the zoo, I don’t want to go home”. There was a little boy about 5 watching us. He excitedly turned to his dad and said “She sounds like me, I don’t want to go home either”. Bob and I did go into the zoo for the last hour and took some great pictures of flowers and a gorgeous peacock. It was so nice, that I’m sharing the pictures with you below.
