Watch the video here:  https://youtu.be/xuSdTK4XeoI Overview: I thought Bangalore just had 2-3 museums which are well known until a few years ago, but a little research opened up my thoughts as I discovered several museums within the city. I have decided to visit all the museums in the city and document those.  The first one on the list is the Indian Musical Experience in JP Nagar 7th phase. This beautiful museum is dedicated to the evolution and science behind different forms of music from traditional to contemporary.  As we enter the museum, in the inner courtyard, we can see a sound garden, where we can learn about the sounds created from natural things like wood, stones, and metals. We can try our hand in generating music as well. This area is well enjoyed by both adults and children. We then get inside the museum and the experience starts from the 3rd floor, where we are shown a small animated movie with different types of sound created by nature.

San Francisco, CA: A Colourful experience

 

Overview: After a couple of years of blogging on my travel within India, I am starting a section on my overseas travel as well with pictures.
Starting in this series, I take you through the streets of San Francisco. Named as Bangalore's sister city, its a pleasure wandering through the city with glimpses of different modes of transport like cable cars, MUNI, BART, Ferry and city buses.
One popular tourist destination is the Pier 39 near Fisherman's Wharf. Its always a pleasant experience to have a walk along the Pier with lot of street performances and eateries. One can see several California Sea Lions at Fisherman's Wharf showing off their dances and performances.
      

Golden Gate Bridge: Be in San Francisco and you cannot miss one of the wonders of Modern world, the Golden Gate bridge. This bridge links the SFO Bay area with the Pacific ocean coast. Used widely by motorists, this bridge also provides a sidewalk for the pedestrians.
      

Coit Tower: Located on top of the Telegraph Hill, this tower was built in 1933. One gets a panoramic view of the San Francisco city from the top of the hill.
    

Alcatraz Island: A small island just off Fisherman’s wharf, was used as a military prison in the late 19th century. We took a cruise to Alcatraz island from Pier 39 passing under Golden Gate bridge.
   

Although there are lot many places to see in the city of San Francisco itself, I believe the pictures say more than the words for this wonderful place.
                 

Some of the trips I did when in San Francisco are to Daly City, Berkeley and Sausalito which I would cover in my future posts.
