Last weekend I went to the MIM. That’s the acronym for Museo Interactivo Mirador. It’s a science museum for children (and adults that like that kind of stuff). I went with my Spanish teacher Alejandra, her boyfriend and one of their friends.
Seeing how it was a Saturday, the place was filled with a plethora of headache-inducing children running amok. But then again, it’s a children’s museum, so I guess I shouldn’t have expected anything different. There were several rooms, each with a specific theme, ranging in topics from optical illusions to the weather.
I should probably add a side note here. Growing up outside of San Francisco, my family and I frequently visited the Exploratorium, an amazing, hands-on science museum in the city. They had an exhibit where you could make huge bubbles. There was a table filled with a soapy solution and huge metal rings that would produce gigantic bubbles.
Well, the MIM one-upped the Exploratorium, much to my delight. They had a whole room just for bubbles. There were at least six stations to make giant bubbles. It was definitely my favorite part of the whole museum. No, seriously. I would totally go back just to play with the bubbles. It was that much fun.

(Gabriel was in a bubble too. But it popped before I could take a picture.)
Now for a few non-bubble related pictures. Really just to prove the museum had other things to do besides playing with bubbles.

|I've always loved optical illusions.|
While writing about all the bubbles, I couldn't help but think about a certain fish from Finding Nemo.
We feel the same way about bubbles.
