The thing about being in Pittsburgh is that time is always so short. We are here now for two instead of one week and against all odds - it does not help much. We are so busy with hugging our wonderful friends (And we won't be able to meet them all - bummer!), working on the Strip project, and watching lots of hockey. As usual we fall short on all the great attractions Pittsburgh has to offer to actual tourists, but we promised ourselves to be at least a little bit better with it this time and it kind of works out.
On Wednesday we had - yes, this exists even for us - a rainy day in Pittsburgh. It is kind of a running gag how much the Pittsburghers complain about the weather in town and how hilariously blue the sky is always on our pictures. Indeed we are obviously very lucky weather wise because usually the Burgh treats us with bright sunshine and I don't leave the house without sunblocker in my face, but sometimes it does even rain for us ... and those days are ideal museum days!
Our choice of the day way the Heinz History Center at the Strip District. If you come to Pittsburgh for the first time be smarter than us - go right away. The museum is the perfect spot to start learning more about the history of the country around the Golden Triangle, the city itself and its gorgeous sports teams. Changing exhibitions round up the offering and do not forget to stop at the great museum store - it is has a huge book and DVD collection that offers practically everything what is available about Pittsburgh. I spent a LOT of money there already.
Here are some fascinating polaroid shots by my friend Gabrijela Obert as a little teaser of what you can expect at the Heinz History Center - come on over and explore yourself!
