For the past year, the students who are in the museum certificate program with me have been working on an exhibit of Mayan textiles and clothing. The exhibit opened this week, and it will be up for 2 years. It was a lot of work, and it turned out to be a really cool exhibit. It looks even better than I thought it would. Mayan clothing is really colorful and vibrant, and we covered the walls of the exhibit hall with black fabric so the pieces really pop.
So, if you happen to be in Provo for any reason, you should stop by the Museum of Peoples and Cultures to see it! The address is 700 N 100 E, the exhibit is free, and there is free parking right across the street from the museum.

There are hundreds more photos from Peter's safari that we could post. Here are a few. Notice all the baby animals- that's one positive about going on a safari in the springtime! Peter told me that during the most popular time to go on safari, summer, you get to see the animal migrations. He said the coolest thing about watching the migrating herds was to see the crocodiles eat as the herds crossed the rivers. I'd rather see baby animals than feasting crocodiles, personally...

This weekend I had the chance to go on safari at the Maasia Mara. I stayed at the Kichwa Kembo lodge, which was amazing. If any of you ever get the chance to go on safari, I highly recommend them (owned by &Beyond). I loved how all of the staff knew me by name and the guides knew right where to go. Below are just a few of the several hundred photos I shot over 4 game drives.
Our camp was inundated with animals: monkeys (like the one above), warthogs, and the occasional bush buck.
We got to see a bunch of lions.
A couple of young elephants playing.
