A men to that Kutscha $$$.

     It turns out that SunWatch was an actual reproduction of the indian village. We were fortunate to run into one of the two men who were reconstructing the village out of straw grass and mud. It was actually very interesting.

The butterfly deal was a bit disappointing. There was one netted building that had cocoons and a half dozen

butterflies. Then we had to walk a 1 km trail and saw another dozen but that was it. Diana and I got hot, muggy and worn out.

     I gotta go now. She is making me take her across the street to the mall $$$$$$.

Later guys, Jeff

Just joking Jeff.
 
You are lucky you didn't go to DC and visit the Smithsonian. It would have been a lot more expensive with all the stores there.


Without the stores there wouldn't My daughter have been able to by 'Flight - 100 years of aviation' as a present for her dad! ;-)
I have to brag about this: Who have a daughter who would chose Smitsonian among any other museums to visit by duty during the New York & Washington trip with the college (and morely persuade two of her freinds to follow)?

I spent almost $90 on a couple of books and a coffee mug. I purchased SEAFIRE vs A6M ZERO. It is about time

I finished the Spitfire Performance Timeline by adding the Seafire. I think this book will help. I also purchased

ENCYCLOPAEDIA of SOVIET FIGHTERS 1939-1951. I am putting the final touches

together on the Yak-3 timeline and then will study this book to see if there is anything to add to any of the information I have posted on the Russian fighters.

     I spent most of my time in the WW2 area (of course). There was a lot of renovation going on in one of the other sections. I got a few pictures here and

there. Hope to post soon.

I was playing around with the control on the wall and they were not labeled in any way and the next thing I knew this bird

flipped over on its nose. I figured if I stood still enough nobody would notice.
