At the MesoAmerica exhibit at the MFA

The other day before going to Fenway Park we went to the MFA to look at the Chihuly exhibit.

We had more time so we wandered through a few more rooms. I was taken by many of the objects in the MesoAmerica section. I see a future Central America trip - I've been to Mexico City umpteen years ago, Belize, Costa Rica, and Tikal in Guatemala but there's lots more.

We still haven't seen the whole new fantastic Arts of the Americas wing; each room takes lots of time because they are chock full of interesting stuff. (More about Chihuly to come).

At the Seattle Aquarium

At the motss.con last month a bunch of of us went to the Seattle Aquarium.

I'm always interested in the Jelly Fish exhibits. They had an interesting exhibit with a donut shaped object you could walk through with Jelly Fish circulating. It doesn't match what you see in the Monterrey Aquarium, nor these ?Jelly Fish? seen at the Chihuly exhibit at the MFA.
