Tut II

The manager at the Tutankhaman Exhibition emailed Saturday and invited us down to see the exhibit anytime.
I was beginning to fear that they had forgotton us.

On Sunday, we went to the Ranch Market again for breakfast of Huevos Rancheros on our way out of Bakersfield.
We drove down to LA, asked to see the manager at LACMA and got tickets for the next entrance group for Tut. It was about 1 pm. It took us more than two hours to see the remainder of the exhibit. When we were here last time, we had only seen three of the 12 galleries before they started rushing us out due to the private party following us. We spent a little over an hour on that visit. They seem to think you're supposed to only require one hour to see it all. It actually takes more like 3-4 hours if you really look. Dawn really looks.
We then used our ticket stubs to go into the LACMA Modern and Contemporary Art Museum to see old furniture, pottery, weapons, sculptures and paintings. Very interesting and will require another visit some time. The La Brea Tar Pits are on the grounds as well and there is another museum on the grounds about it. Again, something for another time. This is all blocks away from Hollywood, Rodeo Drive and the like. Again, more for another visit.
We dropped by to see Dawn's friends Dawn and Courtney at UCLA and then headed home.
