I thought that folks in the San Francisco Bay Area might like to know about this exhibit at the Legion of Honor. It runs through June 17th. My wife and I plan to see it this coming Thursday.

That looks fascinating, Tom! I wish we could see it.

I think Virgin is running a sale on flights from Portland. That's close to you, right? =:)

Oh, boy! I want to see that so badly! :( Am going to check whether any venue in Australia is included in the world tour.

It was a bright sunny day in San Francisco yesterday, if a bit breezy as is not unusual. We enjoyed the exhibit very much. If you haven't viewed the video found at the bottom of the webpage linked above, I recommend you do so. It is a very good representation of the exhibit.
