Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Flying to Dallas this morning for the rest of the week.  Usually these business trips are uneventful– hotel, conference, conference food, new facebook/linked in friends, work, and maybe a family visit if I am in a city with Malayalees.  This week, I want to try to make it a vacation as well.  After some research, I decided that I wanted to see/do a few things this week:

  • The Crow Collection of Asian Art – Located in the Arts District of downtown Dallas, The Crow Collection is a permanent set of galleries dedicated to the arts and cultures of China, Japan, India and Southeast Asia. The museum offers a serene setting for quiet reflection and learning.
  • The Sixth Floor Museumlocated in the former Texas School Book Depository building, examines the life, times, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy.
  • The Women’s Museum – associated with the Smithsonian Institution, a comprehensive national American women’s history museum, a home where people can honor the past and explore the contributions of women throughout history.
  • Keller’s Drive-In – drive-in restaurant with “the best burgers in Dallas”?  We must see…
  • Waffle House – I wait to come to the south to eat at this eatery, that is very unattractive, yet oh-so-delicious…hash browns…mmmmm…
  • Home Visiting – Palanayandi, Noblechachen, Sony, Mini from Albany, maybe Suzanne or other iCare folks, and hopefully a quick trip to OKC to see Nan.  Maybe Aniesh will come over, too.

I will be attending the Freedom Network conference and am looking forward to seeing what the experts have to say, as well as creating & renewing some good relationships from the last year.  I am also traveling as part of the NAPAWF delegation, the result of a resolution I made at the end of last year to get involved with some larger coalitions made up of people that resemble me.

    Museums are a great place to nap–quiet, lots of benches, not a lot of pickpocketers.
