San Antonio

Back in December the Austin Kirsch family headed to San Antonio to meet the Mexico City Kirsch family. San Antonio is pretty close, so obviously I never think of going.


  • My beautiful nieces
  • San Antonio Zoo: Perfect for little kids. Not gigantic, but not small. Great variety of animals.
  • The DoSeum: This place makes Austin’s The Thinkery feel tiny. I didn’t even know it existed!

Conspicuously missing: Six Flags (closed), Sea World (closed), The Alamo, Riverwalk. Gotta leave something for next time.


The Tech Museum

We spent last Sunday in San Jose, checking out the Tech Museum. Which is great, if you are nine years old or less.

However, one interesting physiological phenomena was reaffirmed: my nose is noticeably colder than the rest of my body. Scientists around the world remain baffled. Previous data here.

Infrared vision: my nose is still colder than the rest of my body.
