Night At Penn's Museum

Hello All,

I went with my two children and husband this weekend to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology for their 40 Winks with the Sphinx event for Alums.  We arrived with our sleeping bags Friday night and went on a flashlight tour of the exhibits.  I got my first henna tatoo/body art - it's a bracelet supposed to last about a week or so.  We also got to touch a mummy and a few artefacts - up close and personal!  Very cool!!  Saw some ancient desserts - thousands of years old.  Then sampled some modern versions - a plum cookie and crysanthemum tea.  We all slept on the floor in the room with the Sphinx.  The next morning featured a nice buffet breakfast catered by Wolfgang Puck.  I loved the coffee.  It was absolutely wonderful.  We finished the day on Saturday afternoon with a train ride to Market Street and a Philly cheesesteak.  Great time! 

Take Care,
