Here's an odd photo -- at the Exploratorium, they had an infrared camera. This is Zak and me painted in levels of heat -- can you tell which of us is hotter? :-)

Before we went into the actual museum, we wandered around the Palace of Fine Arts. The buildings are remnants of a World's Fair many years ago -- originally built as part of a vast array of buildings, all done in very flimsy materials. Most of the buildings were torn down, but the Palace was preserved and rebuilt in sturdier form. Two of the original Palace angels remain on guard inside the Exploratorium; the rest are all much changed from their original form.
