I just finished writing up an article and photo tour on Atlas Obscura of one of the best medical museums I’ve ever visited (and I’ve visited a lot!). Traveling through South East Asia last year (oh god, was that already a year ago?), the Congdon Anatomical Museum in Bangkok was one of the last places we saw before boarding that 15 hour flight. It was well worth the wait. A few pictures of fetal skeletons below, but for more photos and more about the experience, check out the article on Atlas Obscura.

There is a new Museum of Mathematics in Manhattan, and it’s wonderful. I went last Friday on the first of monthly field trips with the Atlas Obscura team. It’s one of the few museums I’ve been to that created interactive displays which appeal to both children and adults equally. Lots of pictures over at Atlas Obscura!
Look! I’m on a square biked sized for children! What fun!!
Every year, Dylan and I spend 4 days around Christmas at a lodge in Wisconsin with his family. It is a festive event, annually including fireworks, games with the cousins, nightly nacho cheese and chips time, unlimited beers, and long winter walks.
This was a banner year for winter walks. Look at that snow! Drink in the majesty!
From inside the lodge.
We brought one cup of coffee, and then fought over it.
There seems to be a foot bridge up ahead.
There it is, as promised!
I’m on it! It made many alarming creaks and cracks as we crossed it.

Taking in the view.
This happened on a different day, but I had to include a photo of our chestnuts – roasted over an open fire! We burned most of them, but for those willing to search, a few were truly delicious. How to do so here.
