Tut Review

We had a good day at the LA County Museum of the Arts, with Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs. It was an excellent well thought out display, highly recommended if you are interested in Egyptian history. The display is at the LACMA until November 15th. Details here.

We stayed at the Santa Clarita Hampton Inn, then drove into LA in the morning. Santa Clarita is an interesting town along I-5 about 45 minutes from Wilshire Blvd. The town serves about 150,000 folks with a well developed modern downtown. Magic Mountain is on the edge of town, generating tourist revenue, so you will find typical fast food, plus some unique places. We had some great beer at BJs, a brewpub and restaurant in downtown.

We drive home tomorrow to relieve Hoover’s dog nanny and get back to work. No blogging until we get home. Overall, the Tut exhibit was well worth the drive to LA.
