An Enriching Experience

Dynasty HouseI took a tour of Palo Alto to see some of the local sights. Unfortunately, the Pulgas Water Temple was unreachable because of a closed road, but it did detour me to Filoli. If you don’t recognize it from the photographs, this is the house that was used as the setting for the 1980’s show “Dynasty”. It isn’t quite spring here, yet, and so the gardens were only starting to come out. By mid-March, it should be quite spectacular; perhaps I’ll go back. The house and etate, by the way, were financed by gold mines during the California gold rush.

Hoover Tower, StanfordThe other place I visited was Stanford University. This a beautiful campus, but I guess that’s what you should expect from a place with an average annual tuition of around $25,000. One interesting sight I saw, but was driving so couldn’t take a picture, was this old, beat-up clunker of a car parked right next to a shiny new corvette. I’m sure the clunker belonged to a student with brains but no money (except scholarships) and the corvette belonged to someone with more dollars than sense since it’s extremely unlikely that they’d made that kind of money on their own while still attending school.
