Puppet Kaos - where Kelvin Kao plays with puppets and tell random stories

Back from Pittsburgh

Just got back from visiting my sister in Pittsburgh. I might upload better quality pictures onto my Flickr (which is now empty) one of these days, but for now, here are some pictures from the trip. Click on the thumbnail to view the bigger picture.

This is the University of Pittsburgh Cathedral of Learning. It’s a library that’s a really tall building that I can’t fit into one picture. So here’s one for the top half and the other for the bottom half.

And there are nationality rooms, classrooms that’s based on classrooms of different cultures, in the Cathedral of Learning. Here’s the African room and the Russian room.

This is from the top of the building overlooking Pittsburgh. I think it’s from the 36th floor or so. There are a few historical buildings around here so you see those school buses taking kids here.

We also went to the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden. Here are some random pictures featuring plants, fake flamingos in rainboots, and elephant watering cans washing their cans.

And here’s a view from Mount Washington. You take a cable car up the incline and then you can see rivers, bridges, and buildings.

On a totally unrelated note to this post (though more related to this site than this post), a new episode of Puppet Kaos has been completed. Now I just need to compress the video and upload it. Check back tomorrow for the new video!

    Those photographs are incredible. My favorite is the elephant watering cans!

    The elephant watering cans are available at the souvenir shop, but since I don’t really have anything to water, 9 bucks was a little pricey for me to actually get one. They are cute though. I wouldn’t mind having one.

    I’m glad you liked the pictures! The things actually looked even better in person, because my camera wasn’t quite capturing the vibrant colors (which I thought was a shame). It’s actually making me want to get a more expensive camera, hehe.
