Hanging Out in San Diego

Olivia Smith Donovan, Bio-Inspired Designs Winner

On our free day I wanted to go to the Fleet Science Center but my dad wanted to go the Old Town Historic District from when the whole area was part of Mexico.  But, since this was a science trip and not a history trip, I won.  Besides, the science museum was in a park named after Vasco Nunez de Balboa which still makes it a little historic.

My dad and I had lunch and dinner at a Mexican restaurant that was listed as a good “dive” on a TV show we like to watch.  The window at the restaurant was painted with a large message reading “congraduation” which my dad said was for me winning the Science Challenge.  (It wasn’t!)

I am glad you had so much fun in San Diego! I am also glad you paid attention in Social Studies and remembered who Balboa was. So, do you think they spelled congratulations wrong on purpose? Were they being ‘punny’?

Well, nothing connects you to history and culture like food. I think Mexican food was a great compromise!
