Deep in the heart

I traveled to San Antonio recently, for a day-job conference, and on the first night, a reception was held at the Institutes of Texan Cultures.  Wow.  This was an amazing museum, chronicling all the different settlers of Texas through time, organized by cultural background.  I didn’t get to see every exhibit, although I spent the entire 2 and a half hours I was there soaking up as much as I could.  Here’s a little photo tour of some of the coolest parts:

There was so much more, but I couldn’t get decent photos of everything- there’s a little more over on my flickr.  If you live near San Antonio, I highly recommend a visit!
