I’ve driven by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRA) outside of Socorro many times. The NRAO is home of the Very Large Array (VLA) or a set of giant satellites that in my mind were always aimed at space searching for alien life. That’s not exactly true and probably came more from the movie Contact than it did from any actual research on the VLA.
If you’ve been contemplating a trip to Mexico City….Go! It’s a wonderful city with friendly people, great food, charming neighborhoods, and amazing museums.
Nashville, Tennessee, home to country music and about 2 million people. It’s also host to large conferences, hoards of tourists, and it has become the top city for bachelorette parties – I kid you not.
I’m going to Kansas City. Kansas City here I come! I bet you’re singing it now, too, aren’t you?
I’m a geek. I admit it. I geeked out about this total solar eclipse….geeked out to the point that I scheduled a work trip to get me close to a place where I could view the 100% eclipse.
The Windy City. Chi-Town. The Second City. City by the Lake. Whatever you call it, Chicago is pretty phenomenal.
Weekends are for hiking.
Caverns, Aliens, and Waterfalls…..
When I left you last, we were headed back to San Juan.
Welcome to Puerto Rico: home of beautiful beaches, crazy drivers, and fried food! Seriously, all three of these things exist in abundance on this gorgeous island.
